Local Toyota dealer top achiever
A FAMILY-OWNED local Toyota Australia dealership has been recognised as one of the top dealerships in Australia.
Hinterland Toyota, which operates from premises at Burleigh Heads and Nerang, was this week presented with Toyota's coveted top award, the 2005 President's Award for Excellence.
Dealer principal Tony Stark and his team are first time winners of the award and one of only 17 dealerships nationally to be honoured.
Dealer performance is measured on sales, after-sales service, business management, parts and accessories supply, environmental and community contribution and dealership facilities.
The award ? a striking Lalique crystal trophy ? was presented onsite at Nerang on Monday by the executive chairman of Toyota Australia, John Conomos.
"Hinterland Toyota is an example of an industry leader setting solid foundations in best practice customer service and overall dealership performance," Mr Conomos said.
"Mr Tony Stark and his team are to be congratulated on their clear commitment and enthusiasm in the pursuit of total customer satisfaction."
