Australian Mortgage Awards showcase exceptional achievement

One of the biggest events on the mortgage and finance industry social calendar is fast approaching and nominations are rolling in. 

The 2023 Australian Mortgage Awards will honour the “best of the best” across the nation.

Pepper Money general manager Barry Saoud (pictured above) said that the event was not just an opportunity to network and celebrate – it provided inspiration across the industry.

The Australian Mortgage Awards  will be celebrated at a black tie gala dinner, to be held at the Star Event Centre in Sydney on October 13.

Pepper Money was crowned Non-Bank of the Year in 2022, and is one of the award sponsors for 2023.

Saoud described the Australian Mortgage Awards as “a platform to showcase exceptional achievements”, innovative ideas and outstanding contributions from top brokers and leading lenders.

“The awards inspire us and others within the industry; setting benchmarks and raising the bar for excellence,” Saoud said. “By showcasing their remarkable accomplishments, all the finalists and winners drive progress and advancement across the industry.”

Saoud said that he looked forward to seeing the industry join together and celebrate this year.

“We are thrilled to be once again supporting one of the industry’s most prestigious awards programs,” he said.
