Women in Credit Awards winners for 2020 revealed  

Credit Strategy is proud to reveal the full list of winners for the Women in Credit Awards 2020, sponsored by Qualco, after the awards were held as a digital broadcast this week.

Credit Strategy’s operations director Jenna Abbott, opened the ceremony last night, hailing the ceremony as a “digital celebration of diversity”, as well as “professional excellence among women working in credit-related roles”.


The categories were then announced by judges, from across our independent judging panel, broadcasting from their own homes. The ceremony was hosted by Suzi Ruffell, regarded as one of the best up and coming acts in comedy.


The Women in Credit Awards saw a record number of entries for 2020, as the entire programme gained momentum again in its third year. Of the companies whose employees took the trophies, Three UK, 4most and Oodle Car Finance were among the most successful of the night, winning two awards each.


The highly anticipated Woman of the Year - Creditor award went to Tasneem Bhamji from Lloyds Banking Group, and Woman of the Year – Non-creditor went to Sarah Jackson from Equiniti Credit Services.


Dawn Stobart from Christians Against Poverty received the Lifetime Achievement Award, in recognition of her passion and commitment in the free debt advice profession.


Championing the importance of equality in the industry, the Advocate of the Year category went to Sarah Anderson from Arum, who was previously at Equifax. A founding member of Equifax’s diversity and inclusion forum, judges appreciated how she continually “challenges the status quo”.
