Wrexham Volkswagen scooped not one but two top awards this week at what has been dubbed ‘the biggest night in the used car calendar’.
The Rhosrobin dealership won not only Used Car Sales Team of the Year at The Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards, but Brand Manager Jane Hargreaves picked up the coveted award for Used Car Dealer Principal of the Year.
The presentations were made at a glittering awards ceremony when the managing director of Car Dealer Magazine, James Baggott, said: “Now in its third year, these awards have already become an important date for the automotive industry.
“Picking up a winners award here tonight really is something to be incredible proud of.”
In the Used Car Sales Team of the Year, Wrexham Volkswagen beat off stiff competition from four other teams.
James Baggott said: “Wrexham Volkswagen has faced multiple challenges over the years, but its 11-strong sales team has 51 years’ experience and has worked hard to deliver on sales and, more importantly, customer satisfaction.
“In 2013 every one of the sales executives sold more than 200 cars – with one selling more than 300 – 78% of which were used. A top achievement.”
And of Jane Hargreaves’ award for Used Car Dealer Principal of the Year, the judges said: “Jane takes pride in being closely involved with the sales team on a day-to-day basis.
“She is able to boast that she has never lost a sales person, has placed the site top out of 220 for the used car business and even manages to turn over the site’s used car stock TWICE a month.”
A delighted Jane said: “This was a fantastic night for Wrexham Volkswagen.
“I was really pleased to pick up my award – but absolutely thrilled with the team award. Everyone has worked so incredibly hard this year and by working together I think we have demonstrated what amazing results can be achieved. This is simply the icing on the cake.”
