Leading vehicle leasing and finance credit broker, Synergy Automotive, has marked its tenth anniversary by hosting a special event attended by guests including Andrew Jones – Under Secretary of State for Transport and MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough.

Recent key developments include a 39% team increase in the last 12 months, the driving force behind the success of vehicle leasing giant Zenith, Andrew Cope, joining the board – and securing the coveted Gold Trusted Merchant status from global independent feedback engine Feefo consecutively in 2015 and 2016.

The milestone event, at Synergy Automotive’s Hornbeam Park offices, was supported by clients, local businesses and friends, and a charity fundraiser raised £1100 for The Rainbow Fund to purchase more vital equipment for the Children’s Department and Special Care Baby Unit at Harrogate District Hospital.

Said Andrew Jones: “Surviving and thriving ten years in business is a tremendous achievement. It takes consistent high levels of customer service and an unswerving commitment to meeting the customer’s needs to do that. Leasing is a fast moving and highly competitive sector so I congratulate Synergy Automotive on its success – it is great to see another outstanding local company doing well in a challenging business environment.”

Synergy Automotive MD, Paul Parkinson, commented: “Delivering an excellent customer experience for every client is the foundation of our consistently strong performance. I’m extremely proud of our great employees and the valuable role that each and every one of them plays in driving forward our continued success.”

As the corporate partner of The Rainbow Fund, the £1100 raised at the anniversary complements over £3700 recently raised by a 12-strong team from Synergy Automotive in a gruelling 10km obstacle challenge.
