It’s another excellent endorsement for Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd

At Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd we like to think that we’re doing things right and judging by the constant increase in business enquiries from so many diversely different industry sectors, plus the interest we continually receive from asset finance professionals who are keen to join our national network of franchisees, then it’s probably safe to say that our success is not to be regarded as unexpected.

Even so, we were more than delighted when we recently received the wonderful news that our Business Development Manager, Gavin Houghton, has been shortlisted for one of the Insider North West Young Professionals Awards 2019.

Gavin has not only been nominated but has successfully progressed onto the select shortlist for the category of Young Business Development Professional of the Year Award.  The winners of all the award categories will be announced and presented at a prestigious gala evening and presentation ceremony to be held at the Midland Hotel, Manchester on Thursday April 4th.

This recognition of Gavin’s achievements at Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd is particularly pleasing as he is one of our longer serving members of staff having been with us for nine years.  Over this period Gavin has progressed from his starter position within our admin department up to his current, highly responsible role as our Business Development Manager.

In many respects this recognition is not so surprising because we have always been impressed by Gavin’s high standards of diligence, dedication and excellence. However, to receive the news that his outstanding qualities have now also been recognised by what is the North West’s leading young professionals awards organisation is especially pleasing.

To secure a coveted place on the shortlist, Gavin was firstly nominated by our Sales Director Lee Simms and this was then further endorsed by glowing testimonials from a number of our franchisees, clients and businesses operating within the asset finance sector.

The hard work and attention to detail that Gavin devotes to induct and support our franchisees and the exceptional effort he puts in to ensure that they in turn are able to provide their own customers with the most competitive asset finance solutions is fully appreciated by everyone – both within our headquarters offices in Blackburn and across the wider marketplace.

It’s fair to say that everyone recognises this year’s shortlist is extremely tough and Gavin is up against formidable competition.  Nevertheless, whether he is successful or not on the 4th April we at Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd could not be more proud.  To make it onto the shortlist is a tremendous achievement in itself. Whatever the judges’ decision we would like to say: “Well done Gavin, we’re proud of you and we know that all our franchisees are deeply impressed by the outstanding level of support you provide week in week out”.
