With over 2,000 outstanding applicants all round, an award like this is no easy feat. ‘We definitely did not expect to win!’ says Daniel Wessels, CEO of Jacaranda Finance. “The competition was fierce and all of the applicants should be extremely proud to have been nominated,” he continued. ‘With over 4,000 applications a day, it is safe to say that Jacaranda Finance is well on its way to becoming a leading lender in the Australian financial services sector.’
Managing director of Precedent Productions and founder of the awards, Steve Loe, says ‘The Australian Small Business Champion Awards is a way to recognise the efforts of small business people whose efforts contribute to the prosperity and vitality of communities across Australia’. It is clear that Jacaranda has the vision and dedication to excellence required for success. These traits are displayed in abundance by Jacaranda Finance and their team. With a dedication to nurturing an empowered and unified working environment, the Jacaranda team have all the tools to smash record-breaking targets every day.
Small businesses from across Australia delivered an impressive array of entries, with winners representing a broad range of industries from all states and territories. Representatives of the Jacaranda Finance team received an awards statuette, certificate and gained national recognition as an industry leader in the area of Financial Services. Wessels added, ‘We are so proud to have received such a prestigious award. The Jacaranda team has worked extremely hard with vision and dedication to get us where we are today!’
The awards program itself aims to recognise outstanding Australian small businesses and encourage high standards of excellence in small business practice. Jacaranda is a well-deserved champion delivering outstanding service in finance. ‘It’s been an awesome year so far for Jacaranda. We have hit the ground running, big things are coming!’ comments CEO Daniel Wessels.
2019 has been a big year already for the Jacaranda crew with a major expansion into a brand new, custom-built office space along Coronation Drive in Brisbane. ‘The new office is open plan, showers us with lots of natural light and has created an even better office culture. It’s a powerhouse of energy, collaboration and fresh ideas,’ explains Wessels. ‘We are so excited to be expanding and building our headquarters into the kind of space we’ve all been dreaming of working in. We currently have a few extra seats available and we’re on the hunt for like-minded people to share a part of this new FinTech hub with,’ Wessels concluded.
If this award is anything to go off, we think this up and comer in the FinTech space is definitely one to watch. Congratulations Jacaranda Finance!
