Cardstream Does the Double at the Business Leader Awards

Fintech success Cardstream took the Business Leader Awards by storm, claiming two of the night’s most coveted trophies.

The company was awarded the prestigious title of Business of the Year in recognition of its strong financial performance, innovative business model and the quality of its customer service.

“Cardstream is a shining example of the exciting, innovative businesses that can be found thriving in the South West of England,” said Oli Ballard, Editor, Business Leader Magazine. “The judges were particularly impressed by Adam’s consistent innovation, commitment to staff development and clear plan for growth. One judge commented he has a very bright future in business and is ahead of his years.”

That comment was further emphasised by CEO, Adam Sharpe’s being honoured with the Rising Star Award for his role in revolutionising Britain’s payments industry.

“8 years ago, we took the decision to create a new white label Partner-focused platform that would democratise the payments market,” said Adam Sharpe, CEO Cardstream. “We are delighted to have been recognised by the business community for our success in disrupting the market and delivering the range and quality of the service we offer to our Partners.”

Bringing together the most influential leaders in business, education and government to recognise and celebrate business success, the Business Leader Awards is the most prestigious and celebrated business event of the year in Bristol and the South West.

“These awards are a testament to our outstanding team members, who continue to set the standard for customer service and whose hard work ensures the expansion of our industry leading platform,” said Adam.

Cardstream is the UK’s largest independent provider of white label payment software and services. The company processes millions of payments for a broad international network of Partners that includes independent software platforms; payment service providers; and independent sales organisations.
