B&C Awards 2013: The Winners

Last night's fifth anniversary Bridging & Commercial Awards saw the industry's biggest and brightest meet among opulent surroundings, both to celebrate the progress made within the sector.

Last night’s fifth anniversary Bridging & Commercial Awards saw the industry’s biggest and brightest meet in opulent surroundings, both to celebrate the progress made within the sector in the last 12 months and to recognise its most consistent performers.

Over 440 guests from every corner of the short term finance industry gathered in London’s Grand Connaught Rooms to eat, drink and celebrate a successful year.

Those attending were treated to a Venetian Masquerade Ball, complete with concealed guests, magic and mystery at the hands of an array of exciting performers.

Nominees across 16 categories were carefully examined by B&C’s panel of expert judges in May, with the identity of the winners kept a closely guarded secret until the night of the awards itself.

Even as the evening’s revellers finally left the dance floor last night, there was a palpable sense of the progress the bridging and commercial industry has made over the last five years.
