Clean Sweep for Group 1 Nissan at Ignition Awards

Written by 
Lance St.Clair (2nd from LH), the Dealer Principal of Group 1 Nissan Kuils River, receives the 2017 and 2018 Best Customer Satisfaction Sales and Service – Major Metro Category

Group 1 Nissan, a South African Automotive Mega Dealership, has won Best Customer Satisfaction Sales and Service (Major Metro Category) and the Best Nissan Group Dealer in South Africa Awards at the 2017/2018 Nissan Ignition Awards. Previously they won the same awards in 2016. 

Cape Town, Western Cape, September 2018: Nissan South Africa has once again recognised its top performing dealerships at its annual Nissan Ignition Awards. As in previous years two of the most contested awards of the night, namely the Best Nissan Group Dealer and Best Customer Satisfaction Sales and Service in a Major Metro awards, were once again handed over to Lance St.Clair the Dealer Principal of Group 1 Nissan Kuils River which for the second time took these prestigious awards home.

Winning both of these coveted awards two years in a row is a good indication of just how much time and effort Group 1 Nissan puts into both their customer service and sales teams, and once you realise that they are competing with more than 100 other Nissan Dealerships Nationwide, it is easy to see just how exceptional these customer and sales focused teams really are.

The Nissan Ignition Awards are an annual event hosted by Nissan South Africa, and award top-performing car dealerships throughout South Africa for their various accomplishments throughout the previous financial year. Winning not one but two of the biggest awards of the night is a major accomplishment for any dealership, but doing it twice in a row is making a mark on the automotive industry that is seldom seen. It must be noted that the overall 'Dealer of the Year Award' is divided into four categories, with Nissan South Africa recognising the best dealer in a Smaller Town; Larger Town; Metropolitan Area and Major Metropolitan Area. Additionally, Nissan awards the Best Dealer Group owning and operating more than one Nissan dealership.

Speaking to the National Group 1 Nissan Teams in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage  Marcel Swanepoel the Managing Director of Group 1 Nissan applauded his winning Kuils River Based Dealership and pointed out that this award was even more important when viewed from the perspective that many automotive brands are struggling in the current economy:

“I am never surprised by just how good my Group 1 Nissan team is, because each and every one of you believes not just in the Nissan brand, but in the Group 1 ethos of always putting the customer first. This can be seen not just in the way we have once again won two of the most prestigious Nissan automotive awards in South Africa, but by the fact that many of our customers are repeat buyers. This is testament to our relationship building skills, as we view both our customers as well as our staff as part of one big family.”

-- END --

Group 1 Nissan is an award winning Mega Dealership with showrooms in Kuils River, Stellenbosch, The Glen, Uitenhage and Port Elizabeth (Pre-owned). It has nationwide vehicle delivery capacity and offers regular Nissan Promotions and Specials to its customer base situated all around South Africa.
