Finance Awards Wales 2019 Winners

We have some exciting news! On the 5th April 2019, the Finance Awards Wales were held at Cardiff's City Hall; an event which was attended by over 400 people.

We are proud to say that we, Leekes Retail and Leisure Group, were awarded Medium/Large Finance Team of the Year, beating 3 other competitors.

Feedback from the judges included exceptionally positive comments about how our finance team were able to successfully manage and deal with complex issues across all of our businesses including our stores, The Vale Resort hotel and Hensol Castle, as well as the new gin distillery project.

Mike Fowler, our Financial Director said " We were delighted to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award, but to win this award is such a fantastic achievement to the team as a whole. We have worked extremely hard over the last 12 months to maintain the highest standards that we strive for as a business, and to be recognised by industry experts as the Best Finance Team in a medium, and larger business truly demonstrates the hard work we have put in."

The awards, which were hosted by Timothy Rhys-Evans MBE, were established in 2017 to recognise the achievements of Wales' expanding finance sector which is the fastest growing in the UK.

Matthew Hyde, managing director of Finance Awards Wales commented "In a changing world, and especially in times of uncertainty, one thing is sure - people are the difference. Finance Awards Wales celebrates the talented finance professionals of Wales and recognise the crucial role they play in the Welsh economy and in the organisations they represent. The standard and number of entries exceeded expectations and those who walked away with their awards are deserved winners."
