The team at Oaktree Financial in Fermoy were once again awarded with a Business All-Star Accreditation Certificate by the All-Ireland Business Foundation. 

This is the second time in a row that Oaktree has been honoured with the award from the national body, which accredits best-in-class Irish businesses as Business All-Stars. 

“It is absolutely huge to have won it for the second time and it shows that we have been able to maintain that standard throughout the year,” Managing Director of Oaktree Financial Adrian Godwin told The Avondhu. 

Businesses must go through a rigorous application and judging process before being selected for the award, which focuses on company performance, trust and customer centricity. 

Mr Godwin accepted the official certificate at the awards ceremony in Croke Park on Wednesday, May 1st. 

“In achieving this accreditation we join a unique group of businesses and we believe this continues to demonstrate our commitment to improving our service to our customers and suppliers.”

“When we started out 9 years ago, we never really thought that there would be awards that we could get outside of the industry. We’ve always stayed hugely impartial. We are there as advisors and we always aim to do the very best we can for the client,” explained Mr Godwin.

According to the All-Ireland Business Foundation, Business All-Star accredited companies are defined as ‘progressive, indigenous Irish businesses which meet the highest standards of verified performance, trust and customer centricity’.  

Oaktree Financial have had a particularly successful year following their move from Kent Street to Pearse Square. The new premises was officially opened by the Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe in early April. 

“The move to the square has been fantastic. It’s phenomenal the difference it has made. The aim now is to keep up the momentum and continue to have a positive impact on clients’ lives,” Mr Godwin concluded.
