Michele Levine, CEO, Roy Morgan, says:

“Now in its eighth year, the Roy Morgan Customer Satisfaction Awards are about rewarding Australian businesses with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. Winners of the annual award have been capable of not only reaching high levels of satisfaction, but also being able to maintain those levels despite all internal or external challenges faced throughout the year.”

“The banking and finance category hosted a mix of repeat winners, such as the dominant Commonwealth Bank, to smaller institutions, such as Newcastle Permanent Building Society, who won an award for the first time. It shows that these awards can be won be any brand that’s in the business of delivering high satisfaction.”   

“Six additional banking and finance awards were handed out during Tuesday evening’s presentation, awarding brands that fell within the ‘major business’ category. Winners of these new categories included RAC, MLC, Defence Health, ahm, Colonial First State and HESTA.
