The Mutual Bank has taken out both gold and silver awards in the Hunter Local Business Awards, and named Business of the Year.

The Mutual Bank won its category award for Outstanding Professional Services and was later announced as Business of the Year at a gala presentation evening on Monday 28 February at Belmont 16s.

The Local Business Awards aim to pay tribute to and reward the local community's best businesses. It also aims to develop and strengthen the bonds between businesses and the community thereby improving the standards of local businesses.

The Mutual Bank was one of 16 finalists in the Professional Services category after its Rutherford branch was nominated.

Finalists are selected based on the number of online and printed nominations they receive in their specific category. The finalists are then comprehensively judged in two stages – from the information received by each business and from a mystery shop visit by one of the anonymous judges.

The Mutual Bank’s CEO Geoff Seccombe said the award was a testament to the bank’s staff.

“Our team is what sets us apart, with loyal members due to the high level of service received,” he said.

“As a member-owned bank, we’re here for our members with profits invested back into providing exceptional service, great products, and supporting the community.

”The Mutual Bank strives for modern banking with traditional service and we deliver day in and day out. I’m pleased our staff have been recognised for the continued professional and personal service they provide to our members.”
