Dealership Halliwell Jones, Warrington has been presented with the BMW Dealer of the Year Award at an awards ceremony held at its National Dealer Conference in Australia last night.

Presenting the award to Scott Hamilton (pictured right), dealer principal at Halliwell Jones, Warrington, Tim Abbott (left), managing director of BMW Group UK, said: “This award represents the supreme accolade for BMW dealers in the UK in terms of outstanding customer service and business performance.
