Welwyn Garden City networker is a Mover and Shaker

ONE of the country’s most influential networkers, in property circles at least, plies his trade in WGC.

Ray McAuley, who works for construction company Morgan Sindall, has won a coveted national honour at the Movers and Shakers Property Networking Forum’s annual awards.

The 49-year-old, a regional business development director for the Shire Park-based company, was named Mover and Shaker of the Year.

And Mr McAuley said the accolade was all the more special as the winner was chosen by members within the forum, who were all asked to vote for who they thought deserved it.

He said: “It’s always nice to be chosen for an award but I’m especially proud to have won this one – it’s voted for by fellow members which makes it that little bit more special.
