Leasing Broker Awards 2018SYNERGY Automotive has been named Leasing Broker of the Year 2018.

The award was presented at the Leasing Broker Federation’s annual awards at the National Motorcycle Museum on October 02, 2018.

Synergy, a Harrogate-based leasing broker, also won Best Medium Leasing Broker of the Year and Best Medium Leasing Broker Customer Service Award.

It is the first time that Synergy Automotive has won the overall title, taking over from last year’s winner Fleet Alliance.

Managing Director of Synergy Automotive, Paul Parkinson, said:

“Acknowledging the quality of the other businesses represented makes these awards even more special. Our team of great people delivered this great result and sharing this success with them is our reward.

“The bar in the leasing broker sector is rising every day and we are enjoying being part of this process. One thing for sure, we know we’ll have to be better in all areas next year to have a chance of retaining the title of Leasing Broker of the Year!”

The awards were judged independently by:

  • Ian Featherstone (Energy Saving Trust);
  • Rob Whalley (APD Global Research);
  • Paul Hollick (TMC);
  • Chris Swallow (Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions);
  • Todd Williams (Arval);
  • Steve Cocks (Lex Autolease); and
  • Chair of the judges, Robert Wastell (RWW Associates).

“Synergy has shown outstanding commitment to customer service, which has really driven the business forward, as well as passionately supporting local businesses in the Yorkshire area,” commented Ralph Morton, Editorial Director of the Leasing Broker Federation.

“We have been watching Synergy’s progress closely – and clearly the independent judges have recognised the company as the broker to beat by awarding them the overall title.”
