NSW dealers shine in Suzuki retail awards
Top performance: Suzuki’s top dealers celebrate their achievements at an awards ceremony at Crown Towers in Melbourne recently.
2015 Suzuki Dealer Excellence Awards see four out of 10 winners from NSW
17 March 2016
TEN dealerships have won awards in Suzuki Australia’s 2015 ‘Dealer Excellence’
program, with New South Wales proving to be a stronghold for the brand with
four dealerships reaching the highest level.
Suzuki is another brand to have moved away in recent years from traditional
Dealer of the Year awards to a broad-based program measuring overall
performance against a variety of benchmarks including sales, market share,
customer satisfaction and service retention.
The outstanding performers in NSW were Cumberland Suzuki in Sydney, Lindsay
Mumford Suzuki in Dubbo, John Patrick Suzuki in Port Macquarie and Kelly Suzuki
Two dealerships in South Australia – Southside Suzuki and Suzuki in the City,
both in Adelaide – and another two in Western Australia – Brian Gardner Suzuki
in Perth and Wallace Motors Suzuki in Bunbury – also reached the mark, along
with one each in Victoria and Tasmania: Brighton Suzuki in Melbourne and
Jackson Suzuki in Hobart.
The gala awards ceremony held in Melbourne recently included presentations for
sales volume, with the Cannington-based Brian Gardner Suzuki taking out the
national title and Jackson Suzuki securing the rural award.
Cumberland Suzuki, which operates in Blacktown in Sydney’s west, was deemed the
top-selling NSW dealership, Brighton Suzuki was Victoria’s sales champion and
Suzuki in the City was number one in SA.
Queensland is not included in the program as it is handled by independent
distributor Suzuki Auto Co, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mayfairs W’Sale Pty
Suzuki Australia general manager (automobiles) Andrew Moore said that given the
brand’s sales growth last year – it climbed 9.6 per cent to 19,086 units – “it’
s a priority for us as a company to celebrate the dealers that made it happen”.
He also paid tribute to the broader dealer network, recognising “your passion
and enthusiasm which make Suzuki the company it is today” as it looks for
continued growth this year with new models such as the Baleno small car and
turbocharged version of the Vitara crossover.
As GoAuto has reported, the company is targeting 30,000 annual sales by the end
of next year.
