Marsden Building Society has been recognised in the North West as Financial Services Business of the Year at the 2015 Red Rose Awards. Over 1,000 invited guests joined together at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool to celebrate excellence in Lancashire business and present awards across 25 categories.
Established for over 150 years the Marsden were praised for their continued financial support for their growing membership as Lancashire’s leading building society. The Society aims to provide support for members at every stage in their life; whether that be a step onto the property ladder, providing a home for their savings or helping members reach their financial goals.
Rob Pheasey, Chief Executive of Marsden Building Society said, ‘We are delighted to be recognised as the winners of the best Financial Services business of the year. This has been made possible by the incredible team of staff that is my very great pleasure to lead. Winning the award is an important thank you to the Marsden team and provides a further demonstration to our members of the financial strength and quality of their Society.’
The Marsden has demonstrated its dedication to the local community through their current branch investment programme. So far, the programme has seen the relocation of the Society’s Barrowford branch in February with plans continuing to open a new branch in Garstang, introduce branch facilities back into their Principal Office and relocate their Colne branch to a new, bigger building- that was formally the Colne Building Society.
Marsden Building Society starts 2015 bigger, stronger and confident to face the future delivering a performance and service to members to be proud of. They will continue to extend services throughout Lancashire enabling members to grow alongside them and give them the opportunity to embrace the benefits of a successful and modern mutual.
