As a way of showing our gratitude, the IPBN would like to tell you a little more about these companies and show their offerings.

ClubstoHire.com, represented by the company Founder Tony Judge, launched in 2010. The aim was to give traveling golfers a niche alternative to lugging around heavy equipment in order to do what they love best: to play foreign courses using the kind of top-rated gear to which they are accustomed at an affordable rate. Since its origins, the company has helped over 500,000 golfers do just that. ClubstoHire supplies new quality model sets from top brands along with the convenience of collecting them upon arrival at your destination, be it at the airport or at the resort or hotel of the client’s choosing. According to Tony, “When visiting the sun-kissed fairways of Portugal and Spain or beautifully raw Irish Links, leave your clubs at home and enjoy the latest in golf club technology and service.”

João Marques Seguros, represented by Partner Paulo Sousa has been recognized in the area of insurance consultation and mediation for their professionalism, suitability, accuracy, and transparency. The team balances both technical and human capacity to streamline its operations in the insurance market while fulfilling and honoring the client’s needs through representation in the insurance market in the private and business sectors through key partnerships with top corporations and companies. Paulo said, “Our project is based on people. We understand success as the state of satisfaction and well-being of all of us who are part of the business value chain: investors, employees, suppliers, and customers.”

If you love music and secretly sing in the car and/or shower but you feel too shy to let your voice be heard, Dietmar Goetz has created SoundLove just for you. This project invites both professionals and beginners in singing to take part in classes, workshops, interviews on SoundLove Talk based on personal stories focused around music, and on-stage open-mics. Dietmar says, “I created SoundLove to inspire you to sing and get closer to your voice, especially if you’ve never sung or had a bad experience with singing, or you just want to try it out.” You can choose between group sessions, one-to-one classes, or online meet-ups with Dietmar to get started!

Vendici Properties, represented by CEO and Owner Rebecca Nixon, is a Vale do Lobo, Algarve-based real estate company that has been in the Central Algarve as having incredibly hard-working agents with specialized local knowledge. The needs-focused team helps clients to navigate through the legal process of purchasing a property, as well as explaining what needs to be done a purchase has been made. Vendici has been described as a company that goes the extra mile to ensure each transaction goes as smoothly as possible, as evidenced by their incredible reaction to the pandemic’s buying spree, which Rebecca detailed in this Spotlight Series article from the IPBN.

Finally, Reis - Gestão de Empresas, represented by Carlos Reis, CPA, is an accounting firm with locations in both the Algarve and in Lisbon that provides English-speaking services to both individuals and corporations. The firm's accountants maintain in-depth expertise and experience in several areas of taxation, including property, value-added tax, personal taxation, fiscal representation, the constitution of companies, management advisor, payroll tax, and more. Carlos said, “The company operates with an ethos of trust, integrity, and professionalism, and has therefore established an extensive expatriate and Portuguese client base since its formation in 2004.” The accounting team constantly seeks to bring added value to its clients, either in the performance of accounting tasks or in the continuous detection of financial and operational improvement opportunities, which may lead to considerable cost reduction.
