We haven’t managed to post anything for a while here at Sound Purpose due to the passing of my Father.
Some of you may know him personally as he has been a long standing Broker in the industry spending his last years at Fraser yachts until recently when he finished his fight with cancer.
It has been announced to the public that there will be an award in his honour called The Richard Earp Award.
“It will be given annually to a yacht broker who has a strong work ethic, demonstrates transparency is fair and behaves ethically…These were all the qualities of the broker after whom the award is being named. In setting up the reward Fraser Yachts believes it would be a fitting tribute to his honour. Richard was renowned for his gentlemanly conduct and fair negotiations, valuable attributes that should be encouraged in this growing and competitive industry”
