Selling new luxury vehicles in coastal towns is not the easiest task on hand.
We asked three of the recent Audi Silver Awards winners what they ascribe their success to. They were among the 38 managers and executives recognised by Audi for their achievements during 2019. Two words kept cropping up in their replies: “we” and “team”.
At Audi Centre Umhlanga, Ashley Naicker is the New Vehicle Sales Executive winner in Category 3 and third overall salesman in SA in category 1, thanked God, family, clients and the team at Audi Centre Umhlanga, for all their continued support over the years.
His colleague, Rodney Reddy, who won the Audi Finance Service Award in Category 1, gave a big shout out to his sales team, who he believes are the people who made this achievement possible. “And to all our loyal clients and future clients, come visit us at Audi Umhlanga where you get only the best deals in our brand,” said Reddy.
At Audi Centre Richards Bay, Finance and Insurance Business Manager, Londeka Dubazane, said winning the top award for Audi’s Finance Service Award in Category 3 was the result of team synergy. “We at Audi Centre Richards Bay are eager to get you into a car of your dreams at low monthly repayments. As our slogan at Midbay Motors reads: ‘We don’t just sell you a vehicle, we help you buy a vehicle,” she said.
Mitsubishi Motors South Africa (MMSA) kept the wheels rolling this year with the opening of five new dealerships in four provinces.
The latest addition to the Stellantis dealer network is a large, new Super Group multi-franchise facility in Jacaranda Street, Hennopspark, Centurion, for Jeep, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Alfa Romeo, Peugeot and Citroën.
We can overcome all the hurdles placed in front of us if we recognise our biggest asset in business is our people, says Rob Downs the Dealer Principal at CMH Nissan and Mitsubishi Pinetown.
