AutoTrader Retailer of the Year
So here we are, 12 months on - I was laid up for most of 2018, only returning to work full time this January, and finally becoming pill-free in March! The team have done an amazing job in my absence and at the Auto Trader Awards this year, we were Highly Commended as Retailer of the Year – it is not a win, but is an absolutely brilliant performance bearing in mind the team had to run pretty much without a Captain.
It’s not often I am proud of coming second, but this is actually a better achievement than last year. We could have been in a real mess - I certainly was - and I was not in position to add anything to the effort. Thankfully an amazing group of people took up the challenge! So, to be voted the 2nd Best Car Retailer in the UK on the biggest platform, taking into account customer feedback, advert quality, images, honesty, trust etc is amazing. Hence, for once in my life, 2nd position is a great achievement!
