Beechwood Mazda praised as ‘Most Improved Dealership’ in the UK at the 2020 Motor Trader Awards

Beechwood Mazda Derby is celebrating the end to a triumphant year after picking up “Most Improved Dealership of the Year” at the 2020 Motor Trader Awards. Virtually announced via the Motor Trader website, the Midlands dealership fought off stiff competition from finalists across the UK to pick up the converted title.

Sponsored by 1link, the Motor Trader expert-judging panel assessed finalists on a number of merits including; overall dealership performance, evidence of exceptional management which has driven significant change over a two-year period, a coherent business strategy with measurable success criteria, profit, sales and market share.

As one of the selected dealerships to be recognised in Mazda’s ‘Elite Club’, Beechwood Mazda has seen significant improvements over the last two years and a stand-out winner for the ‘Most Improved Dealership’ title. With an enthusiastic team committed to delivering customer excellence, coupled with an open management-style, the respected dealership is currently the highest scoring Mazda dealer in the UK for customer satisfaction, and most notably has excelled in the 2020/21 National Mazda Dealer League, currently holding number one* position out of 123 dealers across the UK.

Rob Wood, Managing Director at Beechwood Mazda Derby, said: “We’re completely blown away with picking up Most Improved Dealership of the Year at the Motor Trader awards – it’s the Oscars of the Motor Trade so this is a fantastic result for our dealership and our hardworking team. In every aspect of our business, our dealership is committed to exceeding the needs and expectations of our customers, and we strive to give every single person who enters our doors the ultimate service, so to receive this top level of recognition from Motor Trader is a great achievement for all our hard work over the last two years.”
