MAZDA Australia has announced its Master Dealer Excellence Award winners for

The Master Dealer scheme is divided into groups based on sales volume and

As was the case last year, Victorian dealers led the field, with six winners of
the coveted award, while Queensland was close behind on five, New South Wales

Dealers from Western Australia, Tasmania, the ACT and Northern Territory did
not feature in the 2015 awards.
The standout performers in Metro 1 were, in alphabetical order, Essendon Mazda
(Vic), Grand Prix Mazda (Qld), John Newell Mazda (NSW), Max Kirwan Mazda (Vic),
Ringwood Mazda (Vic) and West End Mazda (NSW), while Metro 2 winners were City
Mazda (SA), Graeme Powell Mazda (Vic), Paradise Motors Mazda (SA) and
Sutherland Mazda (NSW).
There were two Master Dealers for 2015 in Metro 3 – Queensland’s Key Motors
(Townsville) and Wippells Autos (Toowoomba) – while provincial winners were
Ballarat City Mazda (Vic), Bendigo Mazda (Vic) and Nowra Mazda (NSW).

For Grand Prix and Wippells, these two top-performing dealerships have now
achieved ‘Master Dealer’ status for the 22nd consecutive year in the program
that has been running since 1994.
The award is based on key performance index (KPI) data across all aspects of
the business – including customer satisfaction, business performance,
facilities and “compliance with Mazda Australia business standards” – with
assessment conducted both on-site at the dealership and at Mazda Australia
