Melbourne –The Crown Casino in Melbourne’s Southbank precinct played host to the annual Mercedes-Benz Dealer of the Year awards last week. The gala awards ceremony, held in the famous Palladium Ballroom, celebrated the outstanding achievements of the Mercedes-Benz Australia dealer network for 2015
The annual awards recognise the exceptional performance of Australia’s Mercedes-Benz dealerships and their staff, acknowledging the New Vehicle Sales, Pre-Owned Vehicle Sales and the Service and Parts components of the business.
The coveted Mercedes-Benz Cars ‘Metropolitan Dealer of the Year’ was awarded to Mercedes-Benz Toowong. Dealer Principal Angus Young, collectively with his outstanding team, delivered a year of exceptional customer service to be awarded the title of ‘2015 Metropolitan Dealer of the Year’.
The highly prized Mercedes-Benz Cars ‘Rural Dealer of the Year’ was awarded to Baker Motors in Albury. Recognised for excellent all-round customer service standards throughout the year, Dealer Principals David and Martin Baker were presented the award on behalf of the dealership.
Mr Horst von Sanden, CEO and Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars Australia/Pacific expressed his gratitude to the entire Mercedes-Benz dealer network for their concerted efforts to customer service throughout yet another record breaking year
“Mercedes-Benz was the number one luxury brand again in 2015, which was our most successful year ever in Australia. I would sincerely like to thank the entire dealer network for their ongoing dedication and passion. Without the tremendous support and commitment of all our staff on the sales and aftersales sides of the business, this fantastic result would not have been achieved. While it’s important to celebrate our achievements, rest assured we are all clearly focussed on not only reaching, but exceeding these targets again in 2016.”
