On 19th November, we received two awards during the 16th Leasing Life Conference & Awards: European Lessor of the Year for the fifth time and Vendor Finance Provider of the Year.
Organised by Leasing Life, Europe’s leading magazine in the leasing industry, the Leasing Life Awards recognise the greatest achievements of the European equipment finance industry.
Receiving these awards in this year marked by the health crisis shows above all the unfailing commitment of our teams towards our clients and partners, in good times and bad. By awarding us these titles, the jury reiterated not only our position as the European leader in professional equipment finance but also highlighted the relevance of our solutions and the strength of our partnerships with the main manufacturers, distributors and publishers of professional equipment.
Indeed, the satisfaction of our clients and partners is at the heart of our business and we consistently adapt our solutions and services to respond to their needs and expectations. To do this, we regularly conduct qualitative and quantitative satisfaction surveys to evaluate their changing needs and also to collect their feedback on the existing suite of solutions. This is has been long-term approach – for instance, as early as in 1978, we were launching projects like “at the service of our clients”, an initiative aimed at questioning our clients and partners on the quality of our relationship.
Organised virtually this year due to the constraints of the health crisis, the award ceremony was preceded by a presentation by Pascale Favre, Head of the Technology Solutions International Business Line on the following topic: Why and how does leasing contribute to a more sustainable future?
She was joined by our in-house business and CSR experts who explained how we contribute to Energy Transition and Circular Economy, and as a consequence to Sustainable Development:
