Credit Today Awards winners

Last evening leading figures from the credit industry gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, for the Credit Today Awards. The awards promote best practice across the industry and attract professionals from around the country.

The event followed an intense judging process that whittled down more than 180 entries to the final list of winners. The judging panel was made up of fifteen experts from diverse ends of the credit industry.

Among those honoured was Yvonne MacDermid, chief executive of Money Advice Scotland. She took home the Martin Williams award for outstanding contribution to the credit industry. The award was renamed this year in honour of the highly respected former Graydon executive.

Graydon attended the event, Colin Wrigley, Graydon's Head of Client Relationship Management, said, "We had a great evening. We were well supported by some important customers and potential customers who we got to know and understand much better. We thoroughly enjoyed their company."
