LeasePlan has announced the winners of its annual supplier awards that recognise outstanding service.

The awards were presented at the LeasePlan Supplier Conference last month (February), which was held at Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire.

The event was attended by more than 170 of the company’s top suppliers, dealers and manufacturers along with members of the LeasePlan UK managing board and Wolfgang E Reinhold, senior vice president of the worldwide group’s car remarketing operations and procurement.

The awards dinner, held in the evening, consisted of 12 awards including the coveted ‘Overall Supplier of the Year’ award.

The following awards were presented to the top suppliers in recognition of their exceptional service in 2014:

Finally, LeasePlan awarded ‘Overall Supplier of the Year’ to The AA in recognition of their consistently outstanding customer service and for achieving all key performance indicators.

The AA retained the LeasePlan business in 2014 for a further three years having delivered against their promises during the tender process of improved service, innovation and additional revenue to LeasePlan. It has also supported the LeasePlan ambition to deliver enhanced digital platforms to all customers.

At the event, the LeasePlan leadership team also shared their ‘2020 Strategy’ which sets out how their suppliers can deliver exceptional service, create greater value, increase innovation and improve efficiency across the business.

LeasePlan UK’s operations director Matt Cranny said: “At LeasePlan we truly value the service that our suppliers deliver to our customers on a daily basis.

“We are delighted be able to recognise the huge contribution they make to our business operations with these awards and I extend my congratulations to all of the winners. 

“Feedback from the event has been extremely positive and we are confident this will help us and our suppliers to deliver our plans for 2015 and beyond."
