A franchise owner for Australia's largest independently-owned mortgage broker, Mortgage Choice, has just received one of the top franchise industry honours - the national Franchise Woman of the Yearaward at the 2011 Franchise Council of Australia's Excellence in Franchising awards.
Belinda Sugars from Mortgage Choice in Myrtle Bank, South Australia, won the award at Tuesday night's gala event for her personal and professional achievements in the franchising sector.
Mortgage Choice CEO Michael Russell said, "We are pleased to see Belinda's efforts recognised by the franchising industry's major national awards."
"She has a tremendously positive influence on other women in this sector as well as the mortgage broking industry, our network, and her local community. Her optimism, determination, leadership skills and resulting business achievements are an inspiration to so many - male and female.
Belinda said of the accolade, "It's a dream to be held in such high esteem for my efforts by my peers. I hope my achievements inspire more women in the franchising industry to set their goals on both their personal and professional success so they make their mark in business."
Congratulations also to Victorian Mortgage Choice franchisee Anthony Smith who was announced runner up in the Franchisee of the Year (2 or more staff) category.
