Corporate Vision Magazine (“CV Magazine”) has named Duncan Hughes-Phillips ‘CEO of the Year 2017 – Surveying Services (UK)’.
In the five years since Duncan founded Base, it has grown from a team of three at the end of 2012 to a team of 54 at the end of 2016, and it continues to grow as its service offer diversifies.
This award recognises Duncan’s innovative approach to leading a team, along with his ability to keep Base receptive to change in the industry and creative in the way it chases opportunities with courage and vigour. Base uses its professional team and their collective experience and instinct to seek to identify changes in the market and to identify the new opportunities that allow Base to expand its offer.
Since founding Base, Duncan has recognised its responsibility to the industry and the importance of investing in training and development for the younger generations. This continues to be a fundamental component, with Base’s apprenticeship programme offering training and support to team members undertaking the Assessment of Professional Competence qualification with the long-term goal of professional membership of The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
