Moneyfacts Group have announced the shortlisted nominees for their 2019 Business Moneyfacts Awards, with Cheshire based Watts Commercial Finance being nominated in both the Commercial Mortgage Introducer of the Year and Commercial Finance Specialist Introducer of the Year categories.

Celebrating the top brokers, lenders and individuals in the business finance market, the Business Moneyfacts Awards are widely recognised as the industry’s largest and most prestigious awards as well as being one of the highlights of the industry calendar.

Watts are hoping to retain the Commercial Mortgage Introducer of the Year title that they secured in March this year, while adding another impressive title to their ever-growing list of accolades.

Commenting on the double nomination, Phil Gray, Managing Director of Watts Commercial Finance said: “We have had another exceptional 12 months – growing our team by a further 42% with more hugely talented Commercial Managers set to join in 2019. Having most recently being crowned Business of the Year in South Cheshire - it’s amazing to end 2018 on a high with two nominations in the industry’s most respected awards.

As our industry heads into a period of uncertainty due to the UK’s complicated departure from the European Union, it is vital for our business to continue brokering and securing competitive products for our customers.

Over the past 12-18 months, there has also been great shift towards technology. With such a strong focus on the UK’s FinTech sector, my team and I look forward to enabling the transformation of our business through technology and delivering our service in a more efficient and effective way - all while keeping our customers at the heart of everything we do.

With this in mind, I am tremendously proud of my team for their continued dedication, hard work and the exceptional customer service that they continue to provide, and I am delighted to have been shortlisted in both the Commercial Mortgage Introducer of the Year and Commercial Finance Specialist Introducer of the Year categories.“

Lee Tillcock, Editor of Business Moneyfacts, added “The last 12 months have witnessed a continuing revival in the business finance sector. Despite the ongoing political debate surrounding the future trading arrangements of the country, many businesses have grown and increased profitability and as this appetite for funding has increased, brokers and providers have embraced the opportunity to boost trading and growth levels.

The 18th annual Business Moneyfacts Awards ceremony will once again celebrate and reward those who have offered the best products and services. Inviting the opportunity to spotlight those providing support within the commercial world, the evening of 28 March will see this widely-anticipated event provide a welcome boost to those who have grown, innovated and excelled in their specific sectors.”

The winners will be announced at The Business Moneyfacts Awards at Battersea Evolution, London on Thursday 28th March 2019.
