Renault UK has announced the winners of its ‘Dealer of the Year’ awards at a special ceremony held at the National Museum of Scotland during its annual dealer conference.

The annual awards celebrate outstanding performance across the manufacturer’s UK dealer network with nearly 160 dealerships competing for the ultimate accolade of ‘Dealer of the Year’.

To determine the overall winner, Renault UK judged each dealership on a wide spectrum of criteria, including sales and aftersales performance and customer satisfaction.

RMB Automotive Ltd, of Northallerton, triumphed as the eventual winner of the ‘Dealer of the Year’ Gold award, with Right Car of Grimsby, and Bells of Crossgar taking Silver and Bronze respectively. All of the winners achieved exemplary scores across the judging criteria, significantly bettering the high standards and targets that Renault UK expects from its dealerships.

Representatives of RMB Automotive Ltd will now travel to the global headquarters of Groupe Renault in Paris in May, where they will join their Gold-winning counterparts from other countries and be congratulated personally by Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO, Groupe Renault.

Vincent Tourette, Managing Director, Renault UK, said: “Having the right dealer partners has been core to the sustained growth that Renault has experienced in the UK in recent years. I would like to congratulate our winning dealerships on their commitment to the brand and the professionalism they have demonstrated in representing Renault at all levels in their business. They can feel very proud of what they have achieved.”

On being voted ‘Dealer of the Year’, Robert Bennett, Managing Director, RMB Automotive Ltd, said: “We are delighted to win the award and it’s very pleasing to have the official recognition for our efforts. Coupled with the variety, value and innovation of the Renault range, our drive to provide customers with the very best experience has allowed us to enjoy a great deal of success since opening in 2016. Renault is a brand that is certainly on the up and the performance of our Northalleton facility, together with the ease of working with Groupe Renault UK, has encouraged us to establish two further dealerships in 2018.”
