Mercedes-Benz UK has awarded its national fleet team of the year accolade to JCT600 Mercedes-Benz in South Yorkshire and the team’s market area fleet manager Tony Dent has also been recognised as fleet manager of the year.
The annual awards are open to all 33 market areas within the Mercedes-Benz UK network and aim to reward excellence in customer service, professional account management and new business development in a range of categories.
Entrants to the awards were measured on a number of performance indicators, including sales performance, key account management and customer satisfaction levels as well as the commitment they showed to the brand and participation in Mercedes-Benz campaigns.
It is the second time Dent has won the individual award. He first received it in 2010, and has been shortlisted every year since.
Based in Sheffield, Tony joined the company in 2002 and has worked with the Mercedes-Benz brand locally since 1998.
“This is an absolutely fantastic result and well-deserved recognition of the excellent team we have built up in South Yorkshire - we have seen impressive growth over the plast five years and during 2013 we achieved a total volume increase of 36%,” said Ian Davies, Sheffield Mercedes-Benz head of business for JCT600.
“The judges commended us for our consistency in maintaining and developing key accounts, our impressive growth over 2013 and our overall performance against targets whilst maintaining exceptionally high levels of customer service.
“The whole team should be proud of their part in helping us to achieve this prestigious award and, of course, a special mention must go to Tony once again for his outstanding performance.”
The winners will be presented with their awards during at the Globe Theatre in London on February 13.
