Henley Awarded Victoria's No.1 Builder For 2019
The Housing Industry Association (HIA) Awards champion the industry’s leading builders and suppliers, and Henley has proudly received Victoria’s most esteemed award – The Most Professional Builder of 2019.
Henley Properties Group was recognised by the judges as a company that is going from strength to strength, valuing quality in everything it does from design and construction to customer service and support. The company’s strong leadership and proactive succession planning was also praised by the judges.
Henley CEO Antony Blackshaw said the award is testament to Henley’s continued commitment to excelling across all areas in planning, designing and delivering stunning homes for Victorian families.
“We are incredibly proud of our Henley team and our extended network of suppliers and trades for their unwavering commitment to our customers and the local communities that we operate in. The passion and hard work in building quality, stylish homes that are affordable for our customers is second to none.” said Antony.
“The award is also poignant as we celebrate our 30th anniversary this year. Since 1989, Henley has built 50,000 homes and whilst the last 12 months has been arguably one of the most challenging periods for the housing industry during these 30 years, our founding vision still holds true today as we continue to champion housing affordability for our customers.”
“Henley takes great pride in mastering every element of the customer journey. From online research on our website to a customer’s first walk-through at a World of Homes display centre, through to the sales process, interior selections, construction and post-settlement phases, the customer is at the heart of everything we do,” added Antony.
“Our people and culture are critical to our success and we’re excited to contribute to our people’s personal development to build a confident, collaborative and an emotionally intelligent workforce to deliver an unrivalled customer experience.”
Stephanie Paras, Henley Customer Administration Team Leader explains “The people and the learning and development opportunities that have been offered to me have shaped me for the better. I am forever grateful for that and I take great honour in saying that I work for Henley.”
“Our industry point of difference is the world of choice we offer our customers. From our unique World of Homes display home strategy with 42 homes displayed across 4 major destinations and our fully immersive interiors selections centre, we pride ourselves on offering our customers more choice at no extra cost, meaning they can achieve a higher level of personalisation within their budgets,” said Antony.
Henley continues its significant altruistic focus, reaching its 26th consecutive year of support to the Good Friday Appeal. This year saw the charity home raise $761,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital, bringing their GFA philanthropic total to $15.46 million since Henley’s first GFA Charity Auction in 1993. In total, the company has raised more than $27 million globally through its philanthropic program.
In concluding, Antony said “To be recognised with such a prestigious industry award is not only humbling but it gives our Henley team the continued confidence to work extremely hard in serving our customers and enriching communities locally, nationally and overseas through our philanthropic program”.
