LeasePlan announces supplier awards

LeasePlan has announced a series of awards to recognise exceptional service at its annual supplier conference.

The theme of the day was ‘stand out and stay ahead’ – designed to showcase the wide variety of support work provided by LeasePlan’s suppliers and to ensure these suppliers are aligned with LeasePlan’s strategy for 2012.

LeasePlan’s suppliers take on a variety of key business functions, including vehicle remarketing, servicing, maintenance & repair provision and vehicle rental services, as well as some less visible services, such as credit management, IT and office refurbishment.

There were nine awards presented to the best suppliers in recognition of their “exceptional” service in the past year:

Non-Auction Sales Channel of the Year: The Car Shop

Supplier Employee of the Year: Joanne Roberts, JTK Automotive

Indirect Supplier of the Year: Bluestone Credit Management

Managing Partner of the Year: Interface 247

The LeasePlan ‘Overall Supplier of the Year’ was awarded to Thrifty Car and Van Rental.

There were also awards presented to the individuals or companies who particularly demonstrated the LeasePlan values of expertise, respect, passion and commitment:

Best Demonstration of LeasePlan Values by a Supplier – Expertise: Kathy Horsey, BCA

LeasePlan operations and service director Matt Cranny said: “It was particularly pleasing to be able to offer awards for demonstrating our core values, as customer service has always been at the centre of LeasePlan’s offering.

“We are looking forward to working closely with all of our suppliers to build on a strong 2011, and will target even greater success in 2012.”
