Kenworth is the next brand off mark to announce its dealer of the year awards with one of Paccar’s longest serving dealers, Brown and Hurley again taking out the major Kenworth award, with its Darra operation in Brisbane claiming the prestigious Kenworth Dealer of the Year award for 2021.

Open to Kenworth dealers across Australia and New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, Paccar says the award recognises dealer excellence in truck sales, parts sales, finance, and aftersales support.

Brown and Hurley Kenworth DAF Darra is no stranger to winning awards having won the Kenworth accolade for the fourth time and follows on the heels of the DAF Dealer of the Year win in 2020.

The presentation of both Dealer of the Year awards were livestreamed again as part of Paccar’s online annual dealer meeting.
