Macclesfield-based fintech business, Monevo Ltd, part of Quint Group, has won Digital Business of the Year at the Amazon Growing Business Awards 2017.
The category highlights the UK digital businesses who are changing the markets they are in and creating new ones, through the application of digital technology. Monevo beat off national competition from Lendable, Virtualstock, WeSwap and more to claim the award which is the UK’s most established and respected recognition of SME and entrepreneurial success.
Quint has developed several synergistic businesses allowing it to diversify technology applications in consumer finance across multiple products and markets, powered by Monevo, the Group’s market-leading proprietary technologies and infrastructure. The Group’s businesses currently service over 50,000 international consumers on a daily basis, and originate over a billion pounds GBP of consumer lending annually in the UK alone.
Greg Cox, CEO and founder of Quint Group, said: “The Amazon Growing Business Awards offer fantastic recognition for entrepreneurs and growing businesses across the UK. We are delighted to have our Monevo business recognised having been awarded Digital Business of the Year! Unlike many of our competitors, we develop our digital technology entirely in-house, making it extremely difficult to replicate. We are at the forefront of the fintech industry and winning this award is a testament to the hard work and talent of all the staff who make Quint what it is.
“Our aim this year is to grow our international presence while continuing to innovate and grow in our core markets.”
Greg has extensive knowledge and understanding of the fintech space and has always been passionate about technology, and despite his broader role, continues to work closely with his Product and Technology teams.
