Lloyd Motor Group’s Blackpool centre has been recognised globally as the best ‘BMW Retailer in Customer Care’ at the 2016 BMW Excellence in Sales Awards.
Lloyd Blackpool was the UK’s sole representative in these awards which are the culmination of regional and national evaluations of thousands of international BMW retailers.
BMW honoured its 36 best dealers worldwide during the Excellence in Sales awards ceremony in Munich.
The awards were presented by the programme’s patron, Ian Robertson, BMW AG management board member for sales and brand BMW, aftersales.
The jury included BMW Excellence in Sales patron Dr Ian Robertson, his first-line management team, and representatives from BMW Group corporate quality decided on the winners from 3,000 entries from 80 different countries.
The worldwide finalists were assessed on their customer communication skills, plus their ability to anticipate customer demands and quickly resolve customer problems.
Bryan Lloyd, Lloyd Motor Group managing director, said: “There were only 36 nominees across six awards categories, so to have been recognised at this level in such a competitive and professional global retailer network is an exceptional honour in itself.
“To win this award and be honoured as the best ‘BMW Retailer for Customer Care’ in the world is an incredible achievement.
“It is a testament to our staff and our belief that a people-focussed culture delivers a great customer experience.”
