We're "Business of the Year" finalists at the National SME Business Awards

Optimum Finance finalists at National SME Business Awards

We're hugely excited to announce that we're finalists at the National SME Business Awards! A massive well done to the team for all their hard work that has made us a contender in not one, but two categories! “Business of the Year under 50 employees” and “Service Excellence”.

Optimum Finance has been successful in reaching the finals of the SME National Awards in two categories. Business of the Year less than 50 employees and Service Excellence.

The SME National Business Awards are made up of 18 categories and allow any successful business in the UK to enter. All entries are judged by a panel of judges made up of prominent UK Business owners and directors.

We impressed the judges with our high growth in client, staff and revenue figures over the past 12 months. Exceptional senior hires, including former Microsoft Global Director of Service Engineering, Gordon McIntosh, and former UK Small Business Commissioner, Philip King, along with being part of the Innovate UK Scale-up programme show the extent and confidence of future growth for the business.

Speaking about the Business of the Year finalist announcement, CEO Ant Persse said, “The last couple of years have been tough for UK businesses. At Optimum we recognise that the amazing UK SME community needs cash to survive and thrive and are proud of the fact that despite economic headwinds, over the past year we have extended more cash to businesses than ever before. We will continue to support our fellow SMEs, because when the SME community wins, we all win.”

Chief Operations Officer, Claire Lewis, said “Our team truly care about our clients and their businesses’ success. We’re passionate about helping SMEs and it’s wonderful that this has been recognized with being named a finalist for Service Excellence at the SME National Business Awards”

The distinguished awards ceremony will take place at Wembley Stadium on the 2nd of December when the winners of all 18 categories will be revealed.
