One local dealership's hard work was recognised this week with the presentation of Daimler's dealer of the year award. Many other awards were also presented to Daimler's subsidiary truck brands.
Daimler Trucks Albury has taken out the prestigious Daimler Truck Australia Pacific Dealer of the Year Award for 2022.
Daimler Truck President and CEO, Daniel Whitehead, presented the award to Daimler Truck Albury Dealer Principal, David Warren, at a ceremony in Melbourne this week.
“Daimler Trucks Albury represents a remarkable success story, having thrived since David Warren and the team took hold of the reigns in early 2020,” Whitehead says.
“A highly respected local, David leads a highly motivated team that has reinvigorated the Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Freightliner and Fuso brands in the region and raised customer support to remarkable levels. Daimler Trucks Albury is clearly a deserving winner of the Daimler Truck Dealer of the Year award”.
The Daimler Trucks Albury team is the sister store to another successful dealership in a key freight corridor: Daimler Trucks Wagga.
Both Daimler Trucks Albury and Daimler Trucks Wagga recently achieved Elite Support certification, a dealership initiative that delivers the highest levels of customer experience.
“We know our Daimler Truck customers really appreciate the outstanding support delivered by these two dealership teams,” Whitehead says.
Daimler Trucks Albury also took out the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Regional Dealer of the Year and Freightliner Regional Dealer of the Year awards.
The Fuso Regional Dealer of the Year Award was presented to Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast, while the Fuso Metro Dealer of the year Award was awarded to Sydney’s STM Trucks and Machinery.
Daimler Trucks Gold Coast won the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Metro Dealer of the Year, while Daimler Trucks Perth was announced as the winner of the Freightliner Metro Dealer of the Year.
