SYDNEY – Marc 5, 2013: Family-owned Annlyn Motors in Penrith, NSW, has been awarded Volvo Car Australia’s Dealer of the Year for 2012.

This year’s award ceremony was a celebrity affair, as it was announced just before the star-studded finale of the All-New V40 launch programme, which took place at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney.

Joining winning Dealer Principal John Dunn to celebrate the award were a number of high profile guests including Volvo Car Ambassador and Channel 9 celebrity Richard Wilkins, Lisa Wilkinson, Matt Shirvington, Luke Mangan, Australian of the Year Dr Charlie Teo, supermodel Alexandra Agoston and rugby players James O’Connor, Drew Mitchell and Israel Folau.

This is the third time Annlyn Motors has picked up the coveted award, adding to their wins in 2008 and 20011.

“If it was a shock last year, it’s an even greater shock this year,” said Mr Dunn.

“To achieve such a prestigious award doesn’t come easily and requires hard work and commitment from the entire team. We have a fantastic team at Annlyn Motors that understand the principles of the business, and are enthusiastic about the Volvo brand.”

The Dealer of the Year Award recognises a dealership that has consistently achieved the highest of standards.

Outstanding customer service, professionalism and all-round performance across 13 key criteria underpin this prestigious award.

“To win the Dealer of the Year award is a great achievement for any member of the Volvo Car Australia dealer network,” said Matt Braid, Managing Director of Volvo Car Australia.

“The award signifies a commitment to excellence in all areas of the business and, of course, an unwavering commitment to the brand. Annlyn Motors has once again demonstrated its dedicated approach to customers, staff and Volvo Cars.

“With the recent launch of the All-New Volvo V40, the world’s most advanced hatchback, and a number of other exciting developments throughout the year, John and the rest of the Dealer Network are as excited as we are at what lies ahead.”

Following the award ceremony, John Dunn and the rest of the Dealer Principals partied the night away to a set by Australia’s number one female DJ Havana Brown who had flown in especially from LA.
