Our team at B2B was quietly pleased to have again been recognised by our inclusion in the illustrious Business Moneyfacts Awards finals for 2019.
With some regret, however, and after a considerable amount of deliberation and sole-searching, we unanimously took the very difficult decision to 'step-down' this time after 7 previous years at the finals, including two winners awards in the past 3 appearances.
While we will cherish our last few months as current holders of the coveted national title - 'Best Asset Finance Broker' - we would like to wish our short-listed industry colleagues all the best at the new venue, Battersea Evolution, London, on the 28th March.
We would also like to thank Lee Tillcock, Editor, Moneyfacts Group plc, and his team for their continued faith and support in our business model, and what we are trying to achieve.
On accepting our withdrawal from next year's finals, Lee commented 'I wish you guys all the best for 2019 as I know how good you are at what you do - it's what the industry needs by the way.'
... so watch out!... we could well be back in 2020.
