BCRS Business Loans is on a roll after being shortlisted as finalists in two more prestigious award categories.
The not-for-profit lender has once again been recognised for its excellent customer service and expert support in helping small businesses across the West Midlands access finance.
The Express and Star recently announced that BCRS Business Loans had been shortlisted as a finalist in the Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year award category at the 2017 Express & Star Business Awards.
And the good news continues, as the lender also received a phone call from Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce to say that they have been shortlisted in the Excellence in Customer Service category at their upcoming awards ceremony.
The latter award follows a recent push to support Worcestershire based SMEs, following the introduction of a brand new business loan fund in conjunction with Worcestershire County Council, which will see £2.2 million delivered to county businesses over a three year term.
Paul Kalinauckas, the chief executive of BCRS Business Loans, was delighted with the news.
He said: “We are so pleased with this news – it’s an excellent reminder to the team that their hard work and dedication is being recognised and is making a significant difference to local businesses and the regional economy at large.
“Everything that we do is centred on ensuring that no viable business goes unsupported. We believe in them and understand that businesses want a personal, relationship-based approach to lending, where they can discuss their application face-to-face with a loan officer.”
BCRS Business Loans is a member of the Responsible Finance network that ensures businesses have access to fair and affordable sources of finance if they are unable to secure the necessary funding from traditional lenders, such as banks. As such, loans from £10,000 to £150,000 are available for businesses operating in most market sectors.
Paul continued: “This is an excellent sign of things to come for BCRS Business Loans, as we aim to extend our support at a time when securing finance continues to be a big challenge for businesses and ramp our lending up to £30 million per annum over the next few years.
“Wish us luck and we will update you with the outcome on our social media streams,” Paul promised.
The Express and Star Business Awards 2017 are due to take place on Thursday 8 June at Wolverhampton Racecourse, while Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber Business Awards 2017 will be held at Worcester Arena on Thursday 15 June.
