The Finance Brokers Association of Australia (FBAA) has been acknowledged for its proactive business model by being nominated in two separate categories for the Optus My Business Awards.

Executive director Peter White is a finalist for the Business Leader of the Year award, while the FBAA itself has been shortlisted as a finalist in the category of Training & Education Provider of the Year.

“It’s extremely gratifying, not necessarily for myself, but for our entire organisation to be recognised by these prestigious awards,” said Mr White.

“We always strive to be the best we can be when it comes to setting high professional standards within the finance sector and I’d like to think that being nominated for these awards is proof that we are on the right track.”

The Optus My Business Awards, which cover 28 categories, acknowledge best practice within a particular industry sector, as well as individual business leaders, excellence in customer service and achievements in innovation, corporate social responsibility and workplace culture.

The winners will be announced at a black-tie awards dinner on Friday, November 10 at The Westin Sydney.
