Select Car Leasing has seen further recognition of the brand's ever-improving stature in the UK, after being added to the Thames Valley 100 SME Growth Index for the second consecutive year. The index recognises the best up and coming brands in the Thames Valley region and is the latest in a string of awards collected by Select over the last 18 months.
Following Select's nomination to the index in 2019, the company has continued on a path of rapid growth to becoming the UK's leading independent car leasing company. In 2019, close to 20,000 people ordered a car from Select, with a rise of 33% on the previous year.
Select have developed into a nationally recognised brand over the course of the past year, with the launch of a nationwide above-the-line advertising campaign on TV, Radio and prominent outdoor locations up and down the country.
Select continue to be highly visible in the local area as a key partner of Reading Football Club, with the company name appearing on the dugouts, around the ground and on the big screen at every home fixture throughout the 2019/20 season.
The company continues to support charitable institutions in the Thames Valley community and marked the renewal of its partnership with the local Sue Ryder Hospice in October last year, with the donation of three brand-new cars to help staff carry out their vital work.
Commenting on the company's inclusion in the index, Select Car Leasing director Mark Tongue said:
"We are delighted to be named in the index and see continued recognition of our meteoric rise. We have been based in Berkshire for almost 17 years and have always strong ties to the local area, so this is an especially pleasing nomination for us to receive."
"Our mission has been simple - to provide more and more people an affordable way to drive a brand new car. We're seeing more and more private individuals turn to car leasing and we're confident with our market-leading customer service, we'll continue to see this grow further"
