Mercedes-Benz Vans recently held its annual Dealer and Agent of the Year Event to commemorate those who persevered and prospered during last year’s tough trading conditions.
The evening was aptly themed ‘The Power of One’, to celebrate how Dealers, Agents and the Mercedes-Benz Vans team all came together to achieve another year of success, despite the many challenges brought by 2022.
Says Nadia Trimmel, president of Mercedes-Benz Vans: “To be able to come together for this event symbolises the spirit we embraced over the course of the pandemic. Although we were unable to come together in person for over two years, what we witnessed during this time was a remarkable coming together in spirit… and we celebrate this Power of One.”
The evening welcomed representatives from the Mercedes-Benz Vans dealer and agent network - which stretches across South Africa, Namibia, Eswatini and Botswana. A total of 20 winners were chosen, based on delivering excellence in all areas of their retail operations.
