Suzuki GB has awarded three employees from its network in the UK at its Guild Awards Ceremony at Fawsley Hall in Daventry.
The competition, which was split into three categories, attracted over 900 entrants from the company’s 149 car dealerships in the UK. The categories were: aftersales advisor, sales executive and technician.
All participants were required to sit four online assessments, with the results determining who then underwent a series of practical tests at the company’s Milton Keynes HQ training centre to decide the final winner.
Martyn Owen of Pebley Beach Suzuki in Swindon fought off competition to win the technician of the year trophy. Phil Dickins from Cumbria Suzuki in Kendal won the sales executive category and Rob Curthoys received the trophy in the aftersales advisor award category.
David Seward, Suzuki GB’s director of sales and marketing, said: “The guild forms an important part of the Suzuki GB distance learning programme.
“Our programme of comprehensive training ensures the smooth and efficient operation of all departments within the dealership and ensures our dealers are giving customers the best possible level of satisfaction in the industry.”
