National award for Pocklington company Apex
A Pocklington-based financial services company has won a national award for its services to serving and former military personnel.
Apex Mortgage and Protection was chosen as the country’s best Veteran and Military Financial Services Group in the UK Enterprise Awards.
Apex is run by former commando Lewis Papa who has recruited a five-strong team of former soldiers to deliver a dedicated service to serving soldiers and veterans.
Lewis said: “Looking after the needs of soldiers and veterans is a real passion for us and to win national recognition with this award is really special.
“Because we are all veterans we understand the problems soldiers and veterans are facing.
“We work hard to provide the best deals for them, generally delivering 30 per cent savings across a range of financial products.”
The UK Enterprise Awards are organised by business magazine SME News.
Senior awards executive Steven Simpson said: “Winners of UK Enterprise Awards are chosen on merit and not on votes cast.
“Apex have been recognised for their excellence in their industry, the quality of their products and their dedication to customer service.”
The award comes after Apex saw a huge growth in sales to its domestic and business customers since launching the office on The Pavement last December.
The success has led to the creation of nine new positions with a 21-strong team of advisors now providing a nationwide service.
