The Stockport Business Awards, which is organised by Clarke Nicklin Chartered Accountants, has acquired a new category sponsor. Handelsbanken will be sponsoring the Business Person of the Year Award at this year’s event.
Handelsbanken offers local relationship banking with products and services tailored to the needs of their personal and business banking customers. The bank’s decentralised model is core to its success. Each branch operates as a small business, enabling the team in Stockport to make decisions locally and to provide a service that is bespoke.
As a relationship bank, they are driven only by what their customers need, designing tailored solutions to suit their demands. Handelsbanken are not target driven, they take a long-term view, investing time to get to know their customers’ needs and ambitions. This approach is summed up in a quote from their book of corporate values: “Our advice must always be what is best for the customer, not what is most profitable for the bank at that time”.
Marketing Manager, Laura Frost of Clarke Nicklin, who are organisers and main sponsors of the awards said: “It’s fantastic to get support and involvement from such high profile businesses such as Handelsbanken, we’re so pleased they are sponsoring the prestigious Business Person of the Year Award at this year’s event”
