Northside Truck & Van has won the Mercedes-Benz Van Retailer of the Year title for the second time running.
The dealer group, which represents Mercedes-Benz in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, claimed the main prize at the latest Mercedes-Benz Van Academy Awards, staged at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales.
The other big winner on the night was the Rygor Group, which took the honours in no fewer than five of the 12 award categories - while also being short-listed for Retailer of the Year.
Both Dealers were among the first in the UK to secure accreditation as Mercedes-Benz Van ProCenters.
Northside’s newly-appointed managing director Ben Sowersby and his colleagues Leigh Margel and Russ Hallowes, respectively van sales director and after sales director, stepped up to collect the latest addition to their Dealership’s impressive trophy collection from guest presenter Louise Minchin, of BBC Breakfast, and Mercedes-Benz Vans UK managing director Steve Bridge.
“Northside is a fantastic ambassador for our brand and its second consecutive Van Retailer of the Year award is richly deserved,” declared Bridge. “Margel’s team posted another set of stunning sales results in 2016, while Hallowes and his colleagues played their part in ensuring that businesses now running Mercedes-Benz vans will keep coming back to the three-pointed star by providing after sales back-up of the very highest quality.
