Commenting on the win, Mike Randall, ceo of Close Brothers Asset Finance said: “We are delighted to have won this highly sought after award, especially given the strength of the shortlist. It’s great to be recognised for the quality of our business model and our expertise in a highly competitive field.

“We’ve had a strong year of trading, remaining committed to supporting our customers reach their goals through creative and sustainable finance solutions.

“Our participation in the Regional Growth Fund has been a key success – to date we have been awarded a total of £70 million from the government, which is allowing us to assist businesses from a range of sectors to safeguard and create hundreds of jobs in the UK.

“As we move forward, we will continue to refine our relationships and develop our products to ensure we remain at the cutting edge of the leasing world,” Mr Randall added.
