The 2023 AM Awards finalists revealed: part two

2023 AM Awards finalists revealed

We can now reveal more of the top car dealers, car manufacturers and dealership leaders who are finalists for the 2023 AM Awards.

The judging panel has selected each category's finalists after days of examining entry submissions and reports from AM Awards auditors UHY Hacker Young, followed by a day of robust debate and voting, under the scrutiny of independent chairman Christopher Macgowan OBE.

In each category, a winner from among these finalists will be announced and presented with their trophy at the AM Awards gala dinner which is being held on May 11, 2023, at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel, followed by ample opportunity to network with motor retail industry colleagues and peers.

"There has been some exceedingly strong competition.

"Congratulations to all those that have impressed the judges sufficiently to make it onto the shortlist," said AM editor Tim Rose. 

"I look forward to seeing you at the AM Awards dinner."
