Mark Catton, CEO at Henry Howard Finance, said: “The past six months has brought with it a string of awards which we are obviously extremely honoured to have claimed here at Henry Howard Finance.

“Some of these recognise the business in its entirety while other titles recognise individuals, but in each and every case this recognition is quite simply testament to the hard work and dedication of our wonderful team as a whole.”

In the second half of 2018, Henry Howard Finance also took the Finance Monthly Game Changer Award, the Global 100 CEO of the Year Award and was also named Top Specialist Vendor in the Leasing World Awards in 2018.

Founded in 1996. Henry Howard Finance is now one of the UK’s largest independent finance houses and operates three divisions supporting the SME market with access to finance, equipment and commercial funding services.

Mark said: “It’s been a whirlwind but extremely exciting 18 months during which we’ve secured additional funding from the British Business Bank ENABLE fund and extended our leasing and asset finance offering to an even larger portfolio of UK businesses.

“For the dedication of the team responsible for making this step-change happen to be recognised with a string of award wins is quite simply the icing on the cake.”
