The AM Awards 2016 shortlist

AM Awards 2016 Logo

With the judging complete, nearly 60 finalists are in the running for the highest accolades in automotive retail.

A panel of eight judges, including AM managing editor Tim Rose and chaired by Christopher Macgowan OBE, made their choices this month from the dealers seeking to be crowned the best in the industry.

Taking a deliberately diverse look at the industry, we are seeking to acknowledge great performance, innovation and a consistent approach that exploits opportunities and tackles problems across more than 20 categories. They range from the cutting-edge – in the four digital categories – to the traditional, among them aftersales, used sales and fleet.

As well as dealers, AM acknowledges the part played by manufacturers in the health of the retail sector in five awards voted for by dealers – new car, used car and franchise of the year as well as manufacturer of the year and digital initiative.

The competition is intense – it guarantees the February 11 ceremony will yet again be a night to remember.

Limited seats remain - to book your attendance at the awards, visit www.am-awards.co.uk.
