Glyn Hopkin: Carmakers Global Award Winners 3 Years Running

Glyn Hopkin Nissan dealership in Essex has achieved a world first by becoming the first to win the carmakers’ prestigious Global Award three years running.

Glyn Hopkin Nissan in Chelmsford joined an elite band of Nissan outlets worldwide when it won its first Nissan Global Award in 2013.

The honour, which is bestowed by Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn, is reserved for only the very best dealerships and only around 160 are presented globally each year. This year only three were made in the UK.

Last year the Bilton Road dealership became one of only a handful to win the award twice.

A delighted Fraser Cohen, Managing Director at Glyn Hopkin, said: “To win the first Global Award was a great achievement and one we are still very proud of.

“Then, when we won the second we were blown away. We really wanted to try and get the hat-trick but thought it was going to be incredibly difficult.

“The fact we achieved it is amazing.”

He added: “Consistently high standards has been the key to Chelmsford’s success and it underlines the reason why, as a group, we are committed to recruiting, developing and retaining the best people.

“We want our staff to stay and grow with us and for them to have a career with us rather than just a job. As a result we have a number of long serving and very experienced staff at Chelmsford and that’s reflected in the dealership’s success.

“Hopefully we can now make it four awards in a row!”

Mike Thompson, Aftersales Director at Nissan Motor (GB), said: “Very few dealerships in the world receive a Nissan Global Award and to win just one is very special.

“So, for Glyn Hopkin Chelmsford to have won this award three years on the trot – a feat we believe to be a world first – is absolutely incredible and testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole team at the dealership and the group and the quality of customer care they offer.”
