Very few Gold Pins are awarded by Volk­swa­gen with Les­ley Ann join­ing of a group of just four within the Volk­swa­gen Com­mer­cial Vans fran­chise to re­ceive the ac­co­lade this year across the whole in­dus­try.

Les­ley Ann said: “It was a tremen­dous hon­our to be nom­i­nated and I am just de­lighted to re­ceive the cov­eted Gold Pin from Volk­swa­gen. It re­ally is a re­flec­tion of the hard work of the en­tire team at Don­nelly Group Volk­swa­gen and the Volk­swa­gen Van Cen­tre in Eglin­ton, prov­ing that we re­ally are set­ting the gold stan­dard for cus­tomer ser­vice.

“Plac­ing our loyal cus­tomer base at the heart of ev­ery­thing that we do, we al­ways strive to ex­ceed their ex­pec­ta­tions by main­tain­ing the high­est stan­dards of pro­fes­sion­al­ism.

“That’s why our sales and ser­vices teams work so closely to­gether as we aim to con­tinue to be recog­nised as the best in the busi­ness, by of­fer­ing cus­tomers un­beat­able deals across the en­tire Volk­swa­gen range.”

In­di­vid­u­als are nom­i­nated for the Gold Pin award as recog­ni­tion of their ser­vices to and ded­i­ca­tion to the Volk­swa­gen brand.

Les­ley Ann is the fourth em­ployee from Don­nelly Group, North­ern Ire­land’s largest fam­ily-owned new and used ve­hi­cle re­tailer, to re­ceive the ac­co­lade, fol­low­ing Ter­ence Don­nelly, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man; Paul Mc­mulkin, Volk­swa­gen Head of Busi­ness, En­niskillen and Chris­tine Dynes, Brand Man­ager Volk­swa­gen Van Cen­tre, Dun­gan­non.

With al­most 20 years in the mo­tor in­dus­try, Les­ley Ann joined the Don­nelly Group in 2013. She has spear­headed the growth of the busi­ness in the north-west, over­see­ing the con­struc­tion and open­ing of a new Don­nelly Group Volk­swa­gen show­room.

Speak­ing at the cer­e­mony, Carl zu Dohna, Di­rec­tor of Volk­swa­gen Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles UK, con­grat­u­lated the win­ners.

He said: “Huge con­grat­u­la­tions to all the Van Cen­tres and au­tho­rised re­pair­ers who won an award – it’s an out­stand­ing achieve­ment. It takes a real team ef­fort to make it hap­pen.
