NFDA AUTUMN BALL & AIM AWARD WINNERSBack

AwardsThe NFDA Autumn Ball 2013 was held on Saturday 5 October at The Grove Resort in Hertfordshire. On behalf of the NFDA we would like to congratulate all the award winners.

MANUFACTURER AWARD

The manufacturer award is determined by using the results of the latest NFDA dealer attitude survey and is selected on the basis of specific questions that are related to the dealer/manufacturer relationship. The nominations were – BMW, Land Rover and Kia

Kia won the award due to their strong relationship with their dealer network which has meant that they scored consistently high in the 2013 NFDA dealer attitude survey.


BUSINESS PARTNER AWARD

This is awarded to an individual who has continued to be an active supporter of the automotive industry. They have supported business development, helped push for innovation and kept a high level of professionalism. The nominations are Blackhorse, PSA Finance and Santander.

Blackhorse Finance won the award because they offer a very flexible approach to business and do not wish to impose a ‘one size fits all’ mentality. The partnership with Blackhorse is very interactive and can be adapted very quickly to the needs of the market and the business.

INDUSTRY ICON AWARD

This is awarded to the individual who has made a significant difference in the automotive industry and someone who has contributed greatly year on year against all odds.

This award was given to Peter Jones who is a very pragmatic business leader with all round commercial awareness. Having operated with manufacturers and dealers, peter is blessed with that scarce commodity – common sense.
