The team at Bathgate Business Finance has been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the CBILS Broker of the Year category at the prestigious NACFB Commercial Broker Awards 2021.
The winners were announced at a glittering awards ceremony at Edgbaston Cricket Ground on 29th September. The category recognised businesses that utilised the scheme and provided a vital lifeline to clients impacted by the pandemic, with Bathgate being recognised placing more than £30 million funding through the CBILS scheme and providing much-needed liquidity into the SME market during the COVID-19 crisis.
Speaking of the accolade, Gordon Andrews, MD at Bathgate Business Finance, said: “There are more than 2,000 brokers in the NACFB and we were one of 10 companies shortlisted in one of the most competitive categories at the awards. Receiving ‘highly commended’ and enjoying a top three finish is testament to the hard work, adaptability and dedication of the Bathgate team and we are extremely proud of the result.
“We would also like to extend our congratulations to all the other finalists and winners who have faced an extraordinarily challenging couple of years yet still continued to support their clients and deliver excellent results.”
