Renault Australia recognises Dealer Brilliance in annual awards

Hamilton Island played host to the annual Renault Australia Dealer Brilliance awards on Friday 24th Feburary. The awards congratulated and recognised top performing dealers across the 52-strong network for their 2016 performance.

“The commitment, dedication and hard work our dealers have put into the Renault brand in the past year has been inspiring,” said Justin Hocevar, Managing Director of Renault Australia. The Renault national dealer network is continuing a six-year long expansion plan that has taken it from 14 outlets in late 2010 to 52 presently, with more dealer groups keen to join the Renault Australia family.

Ballarat Renault scooped the 2016 Renault Dealer Brilliance Award for the first time, ahead of Essendon Renault (last year’s winner), which finished second and Brighton Renault claiming the third podium position (runners up in 2015).

Renault Australia Managing Director Justin Hocevar congratulates Carl Morandi, Dealer Principal of Ballarat Renault alongside business partners Ric and Emma DeRuiter. 

Ballarat Renault Dealer Principal Carl Morandi said he was overjoyed with excitement to learn his dealership was the overall Renault Brilliance Award winner for 2016. “Together with my partners Ric and Emma De Ruiter and all our team at Ballarat Renault, we take a lot of pleasure from this award,” Mr. Morandi said. “It is a team award, recognising the effort we put in to our processes and our customer service. We are a customer-focus driven business and the word-of-mouth and repeat business we get supports this.” 

Don Calvert’s Essendon Renault (VIC) is a serial high achiever for Renault and so collected the award for highest sales volume overall within the network (an award it secured in 2015 and 2014), as well as the 2016 Commercial Dealer of the Year (also won in 2014).

Renault Australia Managing Director Justin Hocevar and Sales Director Mark Palavestra congratulate Don Calvert Dealer Principal of Essendon Renault.

Renault Australia Managing Director Justin Hocevar and Channel Strategy Director Paul Fischer congratulate Mark Avis, Brighton Renault.

“My congratulations go to all of our dealers who have been recognised by the Renault Dealer Brilliance Awards in 2016. Not only will these awards inspire them to continue to shine through 2017, but we are confident the entire dealer network will be energised to pursue brilliance across the full range of their customer activities, delivering on Renault’s promise of passion for life,” Mr. Hocevar said.
