A BALLYNURE woman has celebrated success at the prestigious Insider Media Northern Ireland Dealmakers Awards.

Diane Woodside from Ballynure is Sales Director at Belfast-based Keys Commercial Finance.

The company won ‘Business Funding Team of the Year’ at the awards bash.

Diane said: “We are absolutely over the moon at winning this award. To be even recognised in this category is a huge achievement, given that we were up against some major players.

“As Northern Ireland’s only indigenous commercial finance company we are competing with organisations from across the globe and have been able to demonstrate that our knowledge and expertise is amongst the best in the world.”

The awards, which recognise the wealth of talent from Northern Ireland’s professional services sector, are seen as one of the most prestigious events in the industry.

The Keys Group of Companies was formed in 1992 by Alan Graham, who was then joined by his son Owen, in 1993.

It specialises in small ticket, sales aid leases and small commercial loans.

In June 2010, Judith Totten joined the group as Managing Director and Diane Woodside as Sales Director, having spent 25 years at the Northern Bank.
