David Brennan, chief executive of Nexus Vehicle Management and chair of the judges, said: “The leasing broker sector is playing an increasingly important role in the growing business car market and these awards are designed to recognise the influence of the channel on the new car and new van markets as well as celebrate innovation within these organisations.

“The performance of leasing brokers this year has been just as impressive as it was last year. The sector’s success is characterised by strong governance, genuine innovation and putting customer experience at the heart of their operations. The award winners deserve recognition for their outstanding efforts, but they are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to delivering excellent leasing and fleet management services.”

According to latest BVRLA data, leasing brokers saw strong market growth in the first half of 2016, with combined car and van volumes up by 11% since the end of 2015.

David Brennan added: “While 2017 may see a period of economic uncertainty the leasing broker sector can be cautiously optimistic about the future.”
