Swift Awards 2019

Swift Celebrates Dealer Network Success

Individuals and dealerships had their efforts recognised at Swift Group’s annual awards evening this month, with achievements across areas such as Business Development, Learning and Development and Customer Service Excellence celebrated.

Marking the end of the third year of Swift’s Approved Dealer Programme, the awards event recognises the incredible accomplishments that have been delivered by dealers during the year.

Nick Page, Swift Commercial Director, said “Swift’s Approved Dealer Programme continues to strengthen our partnership with the dealer network, continually enhancing the customer experience.

“We are proud of our Dealer Network and believe it is the best in the industry. We are keen not to rest on our laurels, and with this in mind we are continually looking at new ways to advance skillsets, with bespoke training packages supporting dealership development through the Swift Academy, while monitoring progress throughout the year.

“We have been delighted by the positive impact of the Approved Dealer Programme and it was a pleasure to recognise accomplishments with the awards evening.”
