Trade body’s pedigree recognised at Association Excellence Awards 2023
The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) has secured the coveted title of ‘Association of the Year (with over 1000 Members)’ at the prestigious Association Excellence Awards 2023. The momentous achievement was celebrated during an in-person ceremony held at Covent Garden’s historic De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms on 3 November.
In a fiercely contested category that featured formidable competitors such as the National Residential Landlords Association, the CIPD, the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals, and the Institute of the Motor Industry, the NACFB’s triumph marks a remarkable milestone in the Association’s journey.
The Association Excellence Awards, established in 2015, are widely regarded as the premier accolades in the UK and Europe, spotlighting exemplary practices and excellence among industry bodies, professional membership organisations, and trade unions.
Paul Goodman, chair of the NACFB, expressed his pride in the accomplishments of the Association in recent years. He shared: “This award is a testament to the extraordinary steps the NACFB has taken on its path of growth and transformation. We’ve implemented innovative measures, fostered groundbreaking ideas, and harnessed the boundless energy and drive of our team. This recognition motivates us to continue striving for excellence, and I am confident that the best is yet to come for the NACFB.”
Norman Chambers, managing director of the NACFB, added his thoughts on the NACFB’s remarkable win, noting that it was the first time the NACFB had entered the prestigious Association Excellence Awards. Norman remarked, “The NACFB operates in a people-led industry, and this award recognises not just the dedicated individuals who help keep the wheels of the trade body turning, but also our vibrant and growing group of finance professionals. It highlights the significance of every membership interaction, fostering growth and excellence within our dynamic community.”
The NACFB is immensely proud of this accolade and extends its gratitude to all its members, patrons, partners, and supporters who have been instrumental in the Association’s journey towards excellence. The trade body remains dedicated to driving innovation, professionalism, and growth in the intermediary-led commercial finance sector.
