Shawbrook Commercial scoops two awards at the NACFB Gala Dinner


ShawbrookShawbrook’s Commercial Mortgages team has brought home two more awards after being named “Buy to Let Lender of the Year” as well as “Most Innovative Lender of the Year” at the 2016 NACFB Gala Dinner and Awards.

The NACFB Gala Dinner and Awards was held at the Park Plaza Hotel on Westminster Bridge in London and is always one of the best attended and most respected industry events in the calendar, with well in excess of 700 guests this year. All awards have a shortlist determined by the NACFB board, before the winners are chosen by an online vote from NACFB members.

Karen Bennett, Managing Director for Shawbrook Commercial Mortgages was thrilled by the double triumph:

“It is a genuine privilege for me to accept these awards on behalf of the Shawbrook Commercial teams. Having won both “Buy to Let Lender of the Year” as well as “Most Innovative Lender of the Year” in 2015, it’s very satisfying to retain these awards a year on.

“The constant evolution of our product offering and services for the benefit of our Broker Partners and their clients is a cause close to my heart so I’m especially pleased to also be recognised for our innovation. There are always ways we can improve the broker journey and 2017 will see renewed investment and drive from us in this area.

“The NACFB has 135 lender patrons loyally supporting the broker market with thousands of different lending products and services, so to stand out from the crowd and be recognised as best in class is an incredible achievement of which we can be proud.

“A ferocious commitment to the best interests of the borrower is something which is shared by the NACFB, our band of Broker Partners and all here at Shawbrook. We look forward to continuing our drive to ensure positive customer outcomes whilst championing the importance of the intermediary market.”
