Groupe Renault UK crowned Franchise of the Year

Group Renault UK have been crowned Franchise of the Year at the annual Automotive Management Awards ceremony in Birmingham recently.

Up against some tough competitors the brand came out on top having been voted by dealers across the country. The Groupe Renault UK franchise consists of both Renault and Dacia dealerships.

The Franchise of the Year award aims to recognise a brand that has fulfilled on promises made by the manufacturer partner to dealers, and is decided by AM’s dealer audience throughout January via online voting.

Stephen Briers, Editor-In-Chief of Am Magazine said: “The Renault franchise offers outstanding models and a real partnership approach to its franchised dealers. In the past it took assertive action to shore up its network, but now that same assertive stance is winning over both customers and dealers.”

Ken Ramirez, Managing Director of Groupe Renault UK was “delighted” to receive the award and said that to be voted by AM’s dealer audience makes the award “even more gratifying.” He further went on to say that that launch of Dacia in the UK in 2013 as well as the exciting Clio, Captur and Kadjar Renault models have really helped the brand to grow with the franchise looking forward to “even more growth in 2016.”

As well as being crowned Franchise of the Year, Groupe Renault were also nominated in the Manufacturer of the Year category and Car of the Year category for the Kadjar.
