Listers Evesham achieve number one position in 2014 One Business awards
Evesham’s new Brand Manager David Westwood and his tight-knit team have cause to celebrate, after achieving number one UK Retailer in the 2014 national Volkswagen One Business Awards.
The award, based on Volkswagen UK’s own scorecard system, recognises performance in customer care and quality of service, not just retail performance.
Last year was a top-ten position for Evesham, and at the time we said “roll on next year”.
2013 came and went and with it, a change of Brand Manager as we say farewell to Simon Brown - now at Stratford - and welcome back to David Westwood, who returns to the hot seat at Evesham after a period at Worcester.
Another big change is the move to the new Volkswagen Retail Concept - a complete rebuild of the site to the latest Volkswagen standard, due for completion April 2014. Working from temporary accommodation makes the award all the more impressive.
This year the award ceremony took place at the Volkswagen annual conference which was held in sunny Florida at Marlins Park stadium, home of the Miami Marlins baseball team.
Director of Volkswagen Passenger Cars Robert Hazelwood and Head of Retail Operations Ian Plummer presented David with his award in front of 600 other delegates. Afterwards the entertainment comprised of none other than Lionel Ritchie.
Achieving top spot is an incredible achievement as there are 220 other retailers all vying for position.
David puts the success down to teamwork: “Without everyone’s help we wouldn’t have made it this far, it’s a real team effort and I’d like to thank everybody for their support”.
