Volkswagen, Ireland’s leading car brand has revealed S&R Motors as one of its star performers for 2012 at a recent Awards event in Druid’s Glen.
Nine awards were handed out on the evening, with both individual and dealership performances recognised.
S&R Motors in Donegal were awarded the Dealership of the Year award for outstanding contribution to Volkswagen in 2012.
Securing the number one spot for the first time in the history of the Volkswagen brand in Ireland demanded a considerable team effort and a collective raising of the bar throughout the Volkswagen network.
This collective excellence was evident in the standard of Diamond & Gold Pin winners with Kevin Connolly of Connolly Motor Group in Sligo and Ballina securing Diamond with Gerard Sheehy of Sheehy Motors in Naas & Carlow, John Beecher of Blackwater Motors in Cork and Paul Burke the newly appointed Operations Director of Volkswagen Passenger Cars all recognised for their individual contribution to the success of the Volkswagen brand in Ireland with the Gold Pin Award.
Other Dealerships recognised on the night included; Tom Harvey (After Sales Dealer of the Year), Brady’s Arva (Commercial Vehicle Retailer of the Year) and Connolly’s Ballina (Volkswagen Bank Retailer of the Year).
Commenting on the individuals and dealerships recognised, Simon Elliott, Managing Director of Volkswagen Group Ireland said, “Recognising individual and collective achievement is such a positive and worthwhile endeavor, and the standard set by our 2012 winners demonstrates perfectly Volkswagens commitment to excellence and the need to continually benchmark ourselves against our peers both in Ireland and in Europe. 2013 looks like it will be a challenging year for the motor industry but we at Volkswagen Ireland can look forward with confidence thanks to the excellent people that make up our dealership network and Group headquarters.
