Fuso celebrated the winners of its Dealer of The Year awards for 2016 at a recent ceremony in Melbourne.
Daimler Truck and Bus Managing Director, Daniel Whitehead, praised the contribution of its dealer network. “Fuso had yet another year of growth in 2016, which was our biggest year since the GFC, and our strong customer-focused dealership network is at the core of this success,” he said.
Whitehead was accompanied by Fuso Truck and Bus Director, Justin Whitford, who presented the award for the Metropolitan Dealer of the Year to Daimler Trucks Adelaide Dealer Principal, David Reid.
“Outstanding sales growth was a key component of the award, in addition to brand marketing activations and customer service delivery,” Whitford said, highlighting Daimler Trucks Adelaide’s ability to embrace business changes, while building upon its business in both sales and customer service.
Whitehead and Whitford also presented the award for Rural Dealer of the Year to Cameron O’Hara, Dealer Principal of Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast. “Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast has done an outstanding job of selling Fuso trucks, and just as importantly, it has also done a great job of looking after members of the Fuso family,” he said.
The 2016 Sales Person of the Year award was presented to Leon Benivento from Daimler Trucks Huntingwood, Sydney. Other awardees included the 2016 Rookie of the Year award that was won by Muzammil Syed, from Hallam Truck Centre in Dandenong; while Leon Baker of Daimler Trucks in the Gold Coast, won the award for Parts Manager of the Year; and Fuso’s Service Manager of the Year went to David Centofanti of Daimler Trucks Adelaide.
The Fuso ceremony follows Daimler’s recent announcement of its Mercedes-Benz dealership winners.
