Finance One has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Finance Business of the Year category at the 2018 Optus My Business Awards, the premier event of the year for SMEs.
Founded in 2010, Finance One offers consumer and commercial loans predominantly for the purchase of motor vehicles to people seeking to build or re-establish their credit rating. From its early Townsville beginnings to becoming one of Australia’s fastest-growing finance companies, Finance One has helped over 15,200 Australians gain access to motor vehicles.
The Optus My Business Awards, which covers 28 categories, acknowledges best practice within a particular industry sector, as well as individual business leaders, excellence in customer service and achievements in innovation, corporate social responsibility and workplace culture.
Winners from company related categories will be shortlisted for the highly coveted Business of the Year Award.
Adam Zuchetti, the editor of My Business, said it is another big year for Australia’s longest-running SME awards program, with a record number of submissions this 2018.
“Small and medium-sized businesses are undeniably the backbone of our nation’s economy, as well as the heart of our local communities. It is wonderful to be able to recognise them on their achievements in service delivery, product innovation, workplace excellence and commitment to sustainability.”
“Every year, both the number and the quality of submissions we receive for the Optus My Business Awards gets better, making it an ever-more impressive feat for those stand-out businesses who are named finalists. Our judges really have their work cut out for them in trying to select this year’s winners!”
He added: “On behalf of the entire My Business team and our long-time partner Optus, I want to congratulate all of our finalists on this stellar achievement and wish them the very best of luck for the main event.”
Jamie McGeachie, Managing Director at Finance One said he was humbled by the nomination.
“We believe our selection as a finalist recognises our significant contribution towards providing more Australians an opportunity to improve their lifestyles through finance,” he added.
“It is equally satisfying that a business established here in Townsville is recognised as one of the leading finance businesses in the country with an excellent customer satisfaction rating.”
The winners will be announced at a black-tie awards dinner on Friday, 9 November at The Star, Sydney.
