Silsden-based Ecology Building Society has picked up a top regional award after being named Mortgage Provider of the Year.
The black-tie dinner and Yorkshire Financial Awards ceremony took place on Thursday at New Dock Hall in Leeds, with Ecology beating off competition from Beverley Building Society, Yorkshire Building Society and HSBC to take the accolade.

Ecology was also shortlisted for the Outstanding Achievement Award but lost out to Alan Knowles from Cura Financial Services in Filey.
The Yorkshire Financial Awards celebrate the region’s financial services industry, and the achievements and successes of companies and individuals across Yorkshire.
Ecology Building Society began trading in 1981 in Cross Hills, later relocating to its current site on Belton Road in Silsden.
The company has also this week appointed Amanda Chambers as its new Finance Director, replacing Pam Waring. Amanda has been with the company since November and is a Chartered Management Accountant with 20 years of financial services experience in both mutual and PLC businesses.
