Kwik Fit Financial Services awards employee of the year £10,000 prize

Kwik Fit Financial Services has held its annual staff awards ceremony, at which 38 employees were rewarded for their work over the last year.

Maureen Paterson, executive service consultant at Kwik Fit Financial Services, was honoured with a £10,000 prize as the insurance intermediary’s Employee of the Year.

The award ceremony, which took place in Edinburgh earlier this month, recognised the top performers from all areas of the business who helped contribute to the company’s success in 2009.

In addition to winning the overall award, Paterson also picked up £1,000 for the service department award

Paterson, who has worked with Kwik Fit for 10 years, said: “ I could not believe it when my name was read out for the departmental Employee of the Year award – to win the overall award for the whole company is just incredible.

“Working at Kwik Fit Insurance has really helped me develop a career, with great rewards and benefits, so to be named Employee of the Year really tops it off.”

Another 37 employees were awarded for their contributions in 2009.

Brendan Devine, managing director of Kwik Fit Financial Services, said: “The Employee of the Year awards evening is an opportunity to thank staff for their hard work and commitment to Kwik Fit Financial Services.

“Without their dedication and hard work we would not be able to deliver the high service standards and competitively-priced products our customers have come to expect, not achieve the consistent growth we have seen over the last several years.”
