The UK’s Marcus Kemp, key account manager for DAF Dealer HTC, has won first prize at DAF Trucks’ International Dealer Salesperson of the Year awards.
The Europe-wide event, which culminated in a gala ceremony in Eindhoven, saw top DAF salespeople from across Europe vying for the overall title.
Representatives from 14 European countries gathered at the DAF Experience Centre for the finale when a shortlist of three was announced on stage at the end of the evening, with Kemp being declared the overall victor.
DAF Trucks NV marketing and sales director, Richard Zink, told the audience that Kemp’s success was down to the “strong relationships” he maintains with customers and colleagues.
“Marcus closes many orders (900 in 2019 alone) and ensures that DAF support is maintained in all areas, ensuring successful truck supply and, therefore, building loyalty for future opportunities,” he said.
Kemp received an impressive trophy and a top-of-the-range Apple Smartwatch.
“We’re really proud of Marcus,” said Russell Patmore, DAF Trucks sales director in the UK. “Truck sales is an ultra-competitive world, especially here in the UK where we have high expectations for dealer performance.
“For Marcus to have sold 900 trucks in 2019, and to out-perform colleagues from across Europe, is a truly impressive achievement.”
