Kenworth DAF Hallam has been named the 2021 DAF Dealer of the Year. This is the second time the Melbourne dealership has been awarded the coveted accolade since its introduction in 2002.
The DAF Dealer of the Year program is structured to reward the best performing dealers within the PACCAR dealer network. The award is not just about the highest truck sales, it also recognises superior performance across the business including customer relationships, facilities, parts and service and finance performance in terms of market share, growth, and aftersales support. All areas that Kenworth DAF Hallam exceeded throughout 2021.
In addition to the DAF award, Kenworth DAF Hallam also took out Cummins Dealer of the Year, and the coveted PACCAR Service Dealer of the Year award, demonstrating outstanding commitment to their first-class service environment and customer support.
The presentation of the Dealer of the Year awards were livestreamed again as part of PACCAR’s online annual dealer meeting.
Congratulating the dealership for its performance, Brad May, Director Sales and Marketing for PACCAR Australia, said Kenworth DAF Hallam was very deserving of the prize and praised its continued success with the DAF brand.
“In a year that everyone hoped would not echo 2020, Kenworth DAF Hallam continued to not only exceed expectations but it also demonstrated high performance levels in customer service and support to our DAF customers,” said Brad.
Matthew Keene, General Manager of Hallam Truck Centre is delighted his team has won the award saying, “Despite the challenging year it was, I couldn’t be more proud of the entire team across our three locations for going that extra mile every time. To win seems like a well-deserved reward and one that certainly belongs to every member of the team,” said Matthew.
“Without the support of our colleagues at PACCAR Australia and the DAF Trucks team, we would not be able to achieve these great results. I would like to take this opportunity to add a thank you to PACCAR Australia for the support during what was another challenging year” added Matthew.
