In the award presentation during the CFA National Convention last Monday (April 18), CPG founder U. Gary Charlwood reaffirmed his company’s commitment to the further development of its franchisees.
“I’m incredibly honoured to receive this award on behalf of my sons Chris and Martin, all of our staff and members whose personal determination has led to our collective success,” Charlwood stated during the awarding and induction ceremony.
“We treat our franchisees and their teams like family. That’s why it’s in our DNA to do everything we can to support the success of their businesses from providing the latest tools and technology, to personally answering their call when they need advice,” Charlwood said.
“As the only CFA member in the mortgage industry space, our CENTUM family is incredibly
proud of what the Charlwood Pacific Group has contributed to Canadian franchising,” CENTUM Financial Group vice president of operations Paul Therien said.
“Their innovative business practices have driven franchisee success and helped us successfully deliver the best mortgage rates for tens of thousands of satisfied clients for nearly a decade,” Therien added.
CPG is the master franchise holder of the CENTUM Financial Group and the CENTURY 21 brand in
Canada and Asia-Pacific regions, as well as Real Property Management in Canada and UNIGLOBE
