CHG Integrated Wealth has been named as a finalist in QLD for the 2017 Better Business Awards.

Now in its fourth year, the Better Business Awards is the mortgage and finance industry’s leading program for state-based performance – focused on mortgage brokers and the lenders and service providers that support them.

The strong submissions from the finalists in the 2017 Better Business Awards, in partnership with The Adviser, are indicative of the high levels of professionalism and achievement across the Australian mortgage broking industry.

The awards not only acknowledge the brokers who are leading the charge – those with the most effective businesses, teams, marketing strategies and integrated offerings – but also the lenders and aggregator BDMs that are best servicing brokers’ evolving needs. CHG Integrated Wealth Director of Finance, Eddie Harrison has been recognised as a finalist in Best Newcomer.

Momentum Media’s head of mortgages and real estate, Jim Hall, said the strength of the submissions received for 2017 made the process of selecting finalists incredibly difficult and was a testament to what those in the mortgage industry achieved over FY2015-16.

“In a challenging and competitive market, mortgage brokers and those who support them have clearly shown that they can maintain a point of difference and build better businesses on a foundation of leadership, professionalism and a genuine passion for the work they do,” Mr Hall said.

“Being named a finalist for the 2017 Better Business Awards is a huge achievement. This year’s finalists deserve to be praised and recognised for their outstanding performance,” he said.

“On behalf of The Adviser, I’d like to congratulate each and every one of the finalists. Your hard work and dedication is driving excellence in an industry we’ve been supporting for 10 years, and will ensure Australian mortgage broking continues to thrive for many years to come.”

Participation in the Better Business Awards is open to all brokers and brokerages, regardless of whether they are aligned with a brokerage, aggregator, lender or industry association.
