On Tuesday night (3rd October), the 9th annual Leasing World Awards took place at London's Hilton Bankside.
The awards, one of the most respected in the leasing industry, recognise good management, innovation and business growth across 21 specific categories.
Shortlisted for three awards, we were up against some major industry competition and as such, we were exceptionally pleased to be recognised once again as 'Professions Champion', with LDF Group credit underwriter, Ben McPheat, also highly commended on the night for his performance in the 'Next Generation' category.
Ed Stace, Head of Professions at LDF commented, "It's always a great honour to receive an industry award, especially in an area we continue to support so strongly. Over the last 12-months, our contribution to the professions sector has continued to grow in momentum. We’ve provided record funding volumes to the professions market and have made our product offering increasingly robust with the inclusion of new facilities such as short-term, interest only loans and a greater focus on business development finance.
We are pleased to be a funder of choice for so many loyal customers and to be helping to support their business successes with the right loans, at the right time.”
Ed commented further, “We’ve listened to our customers and worked hard to develop solutions that support their evolving needs, not just professional firms, but across the breadth of Britain’s smaller businesses. We’ve also redeveloped our marketing approach, to focus on making finance as simple as possible, removing a lot of the jargon, to talk plainly to businesses in a language they feel comfortable with.”
Winning the award is a wonderful boost for the entire business, it’s recognising LDF for doing things right, and demonstrating this excellence to our customers, and that is massively important to us.
