Auckland –The Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne last night played host to the annual Mercedes-Benz Dealer of the Year awards. The gala awards ceremony, held in the famous ‘Great Hall’ of the Exhibition building in Carlton, celebrated the outstanding achievements of the Mercedes-Benz New Zealand dealer network for 2014.
The annual awards acknowledge the exceptional performance of New Zealand’s Mercedes-Benz dealerships and their staff, recognising New Vehicle Sales, Pre-Owned Vehicle Sales and Service and Parts.
The coveted Mercedes-Benz Cars ‘Dealer of the Year’ was awarded to Armstrong Prestige Christchurch for the second year running. Dealer Principal Rick Armstrong, collectively with his exceptional team, delivered another year of outstanding customer service across all key criteria to be awarded the title of ‘2014 Dealer of the Year’.
Mr Ben Giffin, General Manager, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Mercedes-Benz New Zealand Ltd said: “We are proud to recognise the outstanding efforts of Armstrong Prestige Christchurch for 2014. Rick and his staff have delivered another exceptional year of service for our customers and truly demonstrated the Mercedes-Benz ethos of ‘The Best or Nothing’.
2014 was our brand’s most successful year ever in the New Zealand market, and I would like to thank the entire dealer network for their enduring dedication and passion. Without their tremendous support, this fantastic result would not have been possible.
It is important to celebrate these achievements, however we are all now focussed on not only meeting, but exceeding these targets again in 2015.”
