Kia President's Acceleration Award


With dealerships across the UK re-opening in June following the UK wide lockdown Carr and Griffiths Chester has been recognised by Kia Motors (UK) Limited as one of its top performing dealerships in Q3. With a long tradition of recognising and celebrating its dealer partner’s outstanding performance, the ‘President’s Acceleration Award’ was presented to those Kia dealers who went above and beyond to rapidly rebuild their businesses and help Kia achieve record sales results in the last three months. The award was presented to just 34 dealers in total with many achieving 150 per cent of their sales target in Q3.

Since opening their doors in June Carr and Griffiths has worked hard across its whole business to get back on track with tailor made local special offers, particularly focussing on our NHS and key workers. Kia’s President and CEO Paul Philpott commented; “It’s been a challenging year for everyone and the whole of our dealer network has worked tirelessly to gain back momentum and sales since re-opening in June. We appreciate that each of our dealers has faced unprecedented challenges and the ‘President’s Acceleration Awards’ highlights those that have really excelled and pulled through together.”

John Parry, Sales Manager at Carr and Griffiths spoke of being given the award “The team here at Carr and Griffiths have pulled together and worked incredibly hard since we opened in June and this award is a great recognition to all that we have achieved.”
