A COMPANY which began in a Southsea bedroom four years ago has just won an award.

Mark Smith, founder and managing director of The Car Finance Company, was presented with the 2011 Lender of the Year trophy, won with votes from the firm’s customers.

The firm now has its head office in North End, as well as branches in Southampton and Bournemouth.

The prize was presented at the F&I Conference and Awards Dinner held in Milton Keynes, and the company beat competition from national firms to win.
