ESSEX-BASED dealership Witham Vehicle Solutions has been named by SsangYong as its UK Dealer of the Year.
It was presented with its award at a glittering gala dinner held at the National Railway Museum in York, where it was congratulated on achieving the best performance based on a number of criteria: sales success, parts and accessory performance, inquiry management, and the launch of the Tivoli XLV crossover.
Managing director Darren Cox said: ‘We are absolutely thrilled. This is a great accolade for the whole team who have worked so hard. The SsangYong franchise has been a great success for us since we took on the brand three years ago. Everyone pulls together, and winning this Dealer of the Year award speaks volumes about their dedication and commitment.’
SsangYong Motor UK chief executive Paul Williams said: ‘Sincere congratulations to Darren Cox and his team at Witham Vehicle Solutions for their performance across the board – sales, aftersales and management. This is a great achievement, and an example to all our dealers on what can be achieved.’
Regional SsangYong Dealer of the Year awards were also presented to Mark Colclough of Chandlers, which has two dealerships in Lincolnshire, Nigel Hidson of Hidsons in Rainham, Kent, Andrew Dickson and David Wishart of Frasers of Falkirk, and Bernard McCotter and Gerrard Crossin of Sere in Belfast.
