Iveco has announced its Dealers of the Year in a gala awards night in Melbourne, as part of the National Dealer Conference.

Adelaide Iveco took out back to back metropolitan dealer of the year awards, while Bendigo Truck Centre picked up the gong for the second time in three years.

Iveco awards points based on sales, service and parts departments, as well as participation in training and customer feedback.

The awards were presented to Adelaide Iveco sales manager, Tony De Leo and Bendigo Truck Centre dealer principal, Euan McGowan by senior CNH Industrial and Iveco management figures, including CNH industrial executive managing director – Australia and New Zealand, Ray Osgood.

Bendigo Truck Centre was also handed a special recognition award to celebrate 20 years of being an Iveco dealership.

“To have received our second Dealer of the Year Award in three years is extremely satisfying, especially as we’re celebrating 30 years as a commercial vehicle dealership including 20 years with Iveco,” dealer principal McGowan said.

“It’s recognition for the high levels of service and support Bendigo Truck Centre is providing its customers and shows that the dealership is providing these high service levels consistently.

Adelaide Iveco’s De Leo said he was excited that Adelaide Iveco had gone ‘back to back’ with the sought after Metropolitan Dealer of the Year Award.

“Given the strong competition and the quality list of nominees, we’re ecstatic at being judged Iveco’s best performing metropolitan dealership for the second year running,” De Leo said.

“The judging criteria takes into account performance across all dealership departments so winning this award two years running has definitely been a team effort.

“We thank our loyal customers and now have our eyes firmly set on making it three in a row next year.”
