National GO Awards 2017/18 Headline Sponsors
We are a financial services group with millions of UK customers with a presence in nearly every community; we are familiar on the high street and with over 1 million businesses through our portfolio of brands.
Customers are at the heart of our strategy. By using our skills, resources and people effectively we believe we can help Britain prosper and deliver superior and sustainable returns for shareholders.
Since 2011, we have succeeded in simplifying, reshaping and strengthening the Group to become a low cost, low risk, customer focused UK retail and commercial bank. Coupled with a focus on our core business, and investment in our iconic brands, this has put us in a stronger position to support the UK economic recovery, and that strategy has returned us to profitability.
In October 2014 we announced the next phase of this strategy, designed to build on the significant progress we’ve made over the last three years, with our vision and purpose to become best bank for customers and shareholders and to Help Britain Prosper still at the core.
Our continued focus is to adapt to the changes in financial services brought about by shifts in technology, changing customer behaviour as well as the evolving competitive and regulatory environment. Our strategy through to the end of this year has three priorities; creating the best customer experience, becoming simpler and more efficient, and delivering sustainable growth.

Stannah Lift Services
Stannah is an independent, British, family-owned engineering company celebrating its 150th anniversary. Established in 1867 by Joseph Stannah, the company first made its name making hoists and cranes for the dockyards. During WW2, the Stannah factory was destroyed. This completely halted all operations and Leslie Stannah rebuilt the business from scratch. In the 60s Brian and Alan Stannah began to build the household name it is today, introducing passenger lifts, service lifts and, in 1975, the well-known Stannah stairlift.
Having recruited its first apprentice in 1949, Stannah’s apprentices now form a large part of the 1,700-
strong workforce. Having weathered social change, multiple recessions and two world wars, Stannah’s portfolio now includes stairlifts, homelifts, platform and passenger lifts, service and goods lifts, escalators, moving walkways, loading systems and maintenance for all lift products across all manufacturers.
Keeping people moving for 150 years, Stannah has installed 600,000 stairlifts, sold over 45,000 goods and people lifts and has a nationwide service portfolio of 90,000 lift products across all manufactures. Now operating in countries across the globe, the company has fifth generation members playing prominent, hands-on roles and running through the veins of it all is Joseph Stannah’s Rules of Life, written in 1867.
