Close Brothers Asset Finance has been crowned ‘finance provider of the year’ at the prestigious Commercial Motor Dealer Awards.
The award, judged by a panel of dealers and the Commercial Motor magazine, recognises outstanding levels of customer service over the past 12 months by commercial vehicle specialist financial services suppliers. Judges looked for evidence of the delivery of a bespoke service to the commercial vehicle market; a strong understanding of the needs of the customer and the ability to meet the individual needs of customers.
Close Brothers Asset Finance was commended for ‘showing outstanding commitment to training the next generation of commercial vehicle finance specialists. The judges singled out the exceptional apprenticeship programme and the long-term support it has shown a diverse customer base’.
Commenting on the win, John Fawcett, CEO of the Transport division, said: “We have a long and proud history of supporting the Transport industry, and the whole team is absolutely delighted to have won this prestigious award.
“We work incredibly hard to build and develop long-term relationships, and evidence of this is our Training Academy that encourages new talent into the industry and ensures our new generation of finance specialists benefit from the experience and guidance of our existing team. This, in turn, provides a continuity of service for our customers while injecting fresh ideas into the business in a managed way.
“The fact that our customers voted for us means a great deal, and to be recognised by Commercial Motor is a great accolade and we are thrilled to have been named as winners.”
