HAWKES BAY TOYOTA RECEIVES
TOP TOYOTA HONOURS
Hawkes Bay Toyota was named Toyota's Top Dealership for 2009 in the annual Toyota dealer awards celebrated during February 2010.
The Toyota Dealer of the Year is the supreme award presented to the dealership which achieves overall excellence in dealer operations, maintains market leadership and has top dealership facilities.
The Hawkes Bay Toyota group comprises its main dealership in Hastings, and branches in Napier, Greenmeadows, and Taupo.
This is the first time Hawkes Bay Toyota have been in the finalist group for Dealer of the Year and Chief Executive Officer Angus Helmore puts it down to a complete team effort from an experienced and stable team.
"We have great teams operating at each of our branches with everyone totally focused on being number one," he said.
"Even during tough market conditions and difficult economic times we have kept a positive attitude and remained focussed on achieving a high level of service."
It is Toyota's strong brand that has enabled our team to rise to the top during these tough times.
"The team at Hawkes Bay Toyota have worked extremely hard over the past 12 months to earn this reward in a challenging market," he said.
He said it was an honour for the Hawkes Bay group to be acknowledged in this way for Toyota's 22nd year of market leadership in New Zealand.
