Keith Andrews staff enjoy success at 2020 Mercedes-Benz Vans Retailer of the Year awards night.

Mac Sykes and Marcus Arnesen from KAT Whangarei and Vijay Chhagn of KAT Auckland were handed prizes for Service Manager of the Year, Parts Manager of the Year and Sales Achievement.

“These awards represent the massive effort everyone put in last year. I am very proud of the winners and of all staff, as no one can win these awards by themselves,” said James Hudson-Owen, Keith Andrews Head of Sales for Mercedes-Benz.

“As Marcus said when I congratulated him, it is simply a team effort.”

The ceremony celebrated the exceptional performance of Mercedes-Benz Vans dealerships in 2020. It also thanked them for their support in a challenging and unique year, heavily impacted by Covid-19.

Managing Director Mercedes-Benz Vans Australia and New Zealand Diane Tarr added that it was a year to be proud of.

“Last year we were forced to adjust, rethink and most importantly remain connected to each other and our customers in unconventional ways,” said Tarr.

“It was a year like no other, but despite the obstacles, I’m delighted to say it was a year of amazing results and an incredible testament to the hard work and passion of our retailer network.”
