The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

IN­DE­PEN­DENT deal­er­ships once again took the lead at Re­nault South Africa’s re­cent 2015 Dealer of the Year Awards.

Pri­vately owned and op­er­ated, Re­nault Worces­ter took top hon­ours with Re­nault Sea­mans Port El­iz­a­beth in se­cond place; third spot went to Re­nault Pi­eter­mar­itzburg, which is owned by the McCarthy group.

Ve­nesh Sew­sunker heads up the Re­nault Pi­eter­mar­itzburg deal­er­ship, which is cel­e­brat­ing its 10th an­niver­sary in 2016.

Thrilled to take to the podium for the first time, Sew­sunker says his deal­er­ship’s third place win was “a won­der­ful sur­prise and well de­served” by the mem­bers of his team.

“It’s been an all- round win for Re­nault Pi­eter­mar­itzburg,” added Sew­sunker.

“In ad­di­tion to be­ing placed in the top three over­all, our used car and ser­vice man­agers took top spot in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories while my new car man­ager took third spot in his. I’m so proud of them all.”

In a mar­ket that was down al­most 7%, Re­nault en­joyed un­prece­dented growth in 2015 record­ing ve­hi­cle sales in ex­cess of 20 000 units.

The mar­que’s “best year ever” ac­cord­ing to Ni­cholas de Canha, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Re­nault South Africa.

“We’re proud to say that the Re­nault brand is now firmly po­si­tioned in sev­enth place among SA’s top sell­ing pas­sen­ger car brands.”

Phon­nie Cil­liers, Vice- Pres­i­dent of Sales and Op­er­a­tions at Re­nault South Africa said hard work com­bined with fos­ter­ing long- term re­la­tion­ships with Re­nault’s cus­tomers, has de­liv­ered long- term loy­al­ties with word of mouth play­ing a large part in se­cur­ing new cus­tomers.

“Re­nault ex­cels at keep­ing its prod­uct line- up both rel­e­vant and fresh, back­ing this with a re­al­is­tic pric­ing pol­icy,” said Cil­liers.
