Together has been awarded the finance company of the year title at the UK Northern Powerhouse international conference.
The Northern Lights Awards, part of the annual conference, highlight the collaboration between and within companies in the Northern Powerhouse geographical area.
Marc Goldberg, commercial chief executive, said: “It’s an exciting time for the region and for the financial services sector, as more and more customers look to alternative finance providers, so we’re thrilled to be named ‘finance company of the year’ which is testament to the calibre of both our products and our people.
“Having been based in the North West ever since we were founded, and with over 500 colleagues at our Cheadle headquarters, we’re proud to be part of the Northern Powerhouse and to be recognised for our contribution.”
This award comes after Together announced its current loan book reached £2bn, with total new lending in 2016 just under £1.1bn.
