Credit Today UK Awards 2015

George Banco – Finalists at the Credit Today UK Awards 2015

Back in March of this year everyone at George Banco was delighted to be shortlisted as finalists at the Credit Today Awards, held at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in London earlier this month.

To be considered as finalists in our second year of trading was both an honour and a surprise to say the least, so of course we proudly attended the ceremony alongside business partner and fellow finalist, Nostrum Group‘s Richard Carter.

Credit Today UK Awards 2015 Balcony ViewThe Credit Today Awards have been running for 16 years and now feature as a highlight of the industry’s year, attracting over 1500 people including some of the biggest names in the business.

The three comedians that hosted the evening (Rufus Hound, Chris Turner and Holly Walsh) provided plenty of laughs, keeping everyone suitably entertained throughout. And there was one further surprise when the National Lottery’s ‘Voice of the Balls’ Alan Dedicoat appeared to announce the finalists and winners.

George Banco was shortlisted in the category – Alternative Lender of the Year – Specialist Consumer, against some very strong and well established competition. Sadly, we didn’t win but simply to reach the finals of such an illustrious event was rewarding enough, especially so early in our history.

George Thomas, Sales Director at George Banco, commented:

“We were thrilled to be shortlisted as a finalist at the Credit Today UK Awards. Our business is a relatively new entrant into the consumer lending market and we are all very proud to achieve this industry recognition at this time.”
