Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) has bestowed “excellence” status upon nine of Australia’s highest performing Isuzu truck dealerships through its 2016 Dealer Excellence Program.

The program puts all aspects of an Isuzu dealership under the microscope, and to receive the coveted excellence status the dealership must maintain superb standards in sales, customer satisfaction, staff training, business management and parts for the entire year.

The dealer principals and dealerships awarded excellence in 2016 were:

  • James Frizelle and Gold Coast Isuzu
  • Tony Emanuele and North East Isuzu in Adelaide
  • Luke Taggart and Suttons Motors Arncliffe
  • Gary Melrose and Gilbert & Roach in Sydney
  • Anthony Smith and New South Wales’ Midcoast Trucks
  • Bruce Davey and Webster trucks in Tasmania
  • James Morphy and Winter & Taylor in Geelong
  • Ian Deacon and Ballarat Isuzu
  • Glenn Leake and Mildura Truck Centre

Isuzu’s Chief Operating Officer and Director, Phil Taylor, congratulated the dealerships on their achievement.

“IAL has always set the bar high, and we expect the very best from our people across the network,” he said.

“We’re delighted to bestow nine excellence honours in 2016 and acknowledge the role these dealers have played in helping Isuzu maintain its market leadership for 28 consecutive years.”

The Dealer Excellence Program is one aspect of IAL’s tireless effort to improve its service and provide greater levels of peace of mind to customers.

IAL National Sales Manager Les Spaltman said the Isuzu brand was only as strong as its dealer network, and the Dealer Excellence Program provided additional motivation for dealers to offer customers the gold standard in service.

“We know that the Dealer Excellence Program gives our dealers real incentive to aim higher every year and develop their customer service every way they can,” Mr Spaltman said.

“That means the customers are the real winners of this program.”
