Moneybarn Managing Director David Shrimpton said,

“Winning these two incredible awards is no mean feat and one that we should all feel very proud of. We’ve achieved some amazing things over the last year as we’ve navigated the pandemic and supported our customers while continuing to innovate as a business. Aimee has been nominated for the Rising Star Award at three different award ceremonies this year, so it’s great to see her hard work being recognised at the Motor Finance Europe Awards.

Aimee, who has only been in the motor finance industry since March 2019, was nominated for her constant determination as well as being the main driving force behind implementing payment holidays across the business, despite having only just started her new role as Regulatory Advisory and Project Manager.

Aimee’s Rising Star Award follows Deal Relations Team Leader Ida Swiderska being named Team Player of the Year at the Women in Credit Awards in September.
