Four New Zealand Isuzu Truck dealers have received the highest dealer award from GM at a function in San Francisco, California.

Ashok Parbhu – CAL Isuzu Hamilton, Micheal McCready – Robertson Isuzu, Jared Morris – Wadsco Isuzu Blenheim, and Gary Clement – Smallbone Isuzu Ashburton, have all been named 2015 GM International Grand masters

They were among more than 160 dealers in the region that received GM’s highest honour for it’s dealerships globally.

Now in it’s 12th year, the GM International Grandmasters programme was created to reward GM’s best of the best for their excellence.

Winners are selected based on vehicle and parts sales, service customers satisfaction and facility standards. They are also judged on both the quantity and quality of their operations.

During the four-day Grandmasters programme the dealers received an update on GM’s business, brands, and product plans, and they also had the opportunity to test drive some new GM vehicles.

Holden New Zealand managing director Kristian Aquilina says the 2015 group have truly earned the right to be called Grandmasters.

“Our dealers are key members of our New Zealand team,” says Aquilina. “Like GM, our dealers are putting the customer at the centre of everything they do to create customers for life.”
