Top performing dealers recognised
General Motors South Africa ( GMSA) named its top performing dealers in its annual Dealer of the Year awards evening in Sandton, Johannesburg this week. Depending on the size of the dealership, dealers compete in three different categories: major, medium and small. To be considered for the award dealers have to achieve at least 100% in all areas relating to the business. The Major Dealer of the Year award went to Bates Port Shepstone, with Jacksons Queenstown and Eastvaal Motors Standerton receiving Dealer of the Year awards for medium and small dealership categories respectively. The Top Major GMSA Financial Services Dealer award went to Key Pinetown, with the medium and small accolade being awarded to Westvaal Mashishing and Eastvaal Motors Standerton, respectively.
