THE best-performing Groupe Renault dealers in the UK have gained further recognition by attending a European awards ceremony in Paris.
They were awarded commendations at Renault’s UK dealer conference in January, and went to the Paris event with Groupe Renault’s UK managing director, Vincent Tourette, and Louise O’Sullivan, UK network development director.
The dealer representatives enjoyed an evening dinner to celebrate the Dealer of The Year 2018 Laureates from all of Europe, visited the Technocentre, Renault’s global R&D centre, then went to the grand awards ceremony at the Stade de France.
The winning dealers were:
Lee Phillips, dealer principal, Renault Cardiff (Best Large Dealer)
Jonathan Gravell, group head and dealer principal, Gravells of Kidwelly (Best Medium Dealer)
Charlie Bell, dealer principal, Bells of Crossgar (Best Small Dealer)
Mark Flood, dealer principal, Glyn Hopkin Chelmsford (Best New Dealer)
O’Sullivan said: ‘Great dealers are the lifeblood of any brand, and those that know how to look after their customers generate strong return custom as well as significant conquest sales from other brands.
‘Each one of our winners has shown an exemplary approach to both customer service and Groupe Renault standards, and thoroughly deserves the pan-European recognition from our parent company.’
