2015 Leasing Life Conference & Awards: Winners Announced PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 08 December 2015

The winners have now been announced for the tenth Leasing Life Awards, which took place at the Corinthia Hotel in Hungarian capital Budapest on the 3rd December, 2015.

The Awards, which were held as a part of Leasing Life Conference, brought together leading figures from a variety of leasing industry backgrounds, to discuss and celebrate the industry’s progress at the turning point of this decade. There was also a chance to consider the industry’s strategic role in the recovery of European economies and to prepare for future challenges affecting its particular place in the financial world.

The awards challenged candidates from across Europe to share their recent successes and the achievements of the European asset finance industry in 2015. The winners across 12 categories were carefully selected by the judging panel and honoured in the ceremony hosted by Editor of Leasing Life – Brian Cantwell.

The panel of judges brought in fresh industry expertise and longstanding knowledge of Europe’s asset finance industry. The judging panel was actively involved in the evaluation process, guaranteeing the independence and transparency of the programme.

“Our judges did an excellent job of making the hard decisions to pick our winners and runners up. I would like to recognize the fact that there were some new entries into the awards this year, and some familiar names that have re-emerged, so it gives a real sense of ambition and achievement alongside a respect for the longevity that some of these brands have accumulated in the market since we started the awards,” says Cantwell.

“The Awards also reflect that this is an industry with an eye to the future, focused on moving with the times and staying ahead of changing market needs. So we welcome the external investment award, designed to reward innovative and developmental capital investments in the asset finance markets, and the development of separate SME Champion awards for Europe and the UK, which recognizes these thriving and growing sectors,” he adds.
