Sunderland car retailer Pulman SEAT is celebrating after being named as the Spanish brand’s Dealer of the Year – for the second year running.
The stunning achievement is a major coup for the dealership, especially as it has only been trading for two-and-a-half years.
Pulman Seat's site manager, Chris Slater, was on hand to receive the award at a showpiece gala evening hosted by musician and TV celebrity, Myleene Klass.
Delighted staff popped open the champagne at their showroom in Burntland Avenue, Southwick, after hearing they had triumphed again.
Chris Slater said: "I would like to say a massive thanks to all our fantastic staff and customers. We will be continuing to work hard to deliver the best possible customer experience in 2013.
"Our staff understand what delivering a fantastic customer experience is – everything from ordering a part to making a cup of coffee.
“The Dealer of the Year award is particularly pleasing to win because we are judged not only on our results as a business but also for our performance in meeting the high expectations of our customers.
"It is important to us that we make the experience of buying a used car every bit as enjoyable as buying a new car.”
