Suzuki GB was delighted to present more than 20 of its dealers with Long Service Awards recently, all having represented Suzuki motorcycles in the UK for more than 30 years, at the same time as the Japanese manufacturer celebrates 50 years in the UK.
Following a positive and constructive dealer meeting in January, Suzuki GB senior management set out to personally visit each dealer to present the awards, while also awarding dealers who made notable achievements during 2012 also.
Suzuki GB national sales manager, Jonathan Martin, commented, "All of us at Suzuki GB feel extremely proud and honoured, to be able to recognise so much commitment to the Suzuki brand, from our dealer network. We have 28 dealers who have served their customers and partnered Suzuki GB for between 30 and 50 years.
"But regardless of partnership time, I'd like to personally thank each and every dealer for their support and commitment to Suzuki. Without this great team of passionate professionals we would not be celebrating fifty years of Suzuki in the UK, so a very big thank you to all of our dealer network."
Key achievers include Crescent Motorcycles, Crooks Suzuki and Padgetts Motorcycles, who each celebrate 50 years as Suzuki dealers.
On top of the long serving dealer recognition, Suzuki also awarded three dealers for specific excellence. Saltire Suzuki in Edinburgh was recognised for achievements in local marketing, while B and B Motorcycles in Lincoln won the Best Overall Customer Service award and Fowlers of Bristol scooped the Parts & Accessory Growth award.
