Big Motoring World Success At Auto Industry Excellence Awards
Wednesday night saw the Big Motoring World team attended the Auto Industry Excellence Awards in what would prove to be a very successful night for our owner and CEO Peter Waddell as he collected the award for Dealer Principal Excellence.
Designed to recognise outstanding achievements in the motor trade the Auto Industry Excellence Awards are now into their second year and are going from strength to strength. With over 200 members of the automotive industry present, the event brings the cream of the motor trade together to celebrate our industries incredible depth and breath.
Heading into the event we were delighted to see Peter make it through to the finals as we also achieved the same accolade for our website in the Dealer Website Excellence category.
On the night we were pleased to go one better in the Dealer Website Excellence category, receiving Highly Commended status. This adds to our victory in this category last year and to date is our fifth overall accolade for our website.
After receiving this status we were incredibly proud to see Peter named as the overall award victor for Dealer Principal Excellence as he took to the stage to collect his very much deserved trophy.
Peter has been instrumental in the success of Big Motoring World and was the founding father of the company we know and love to this day. We recently wrote about Peter’s and Big Motoring Worlds story in a recent blog which can be viewed here.
Way back in the late 1980’s Peter had a vision and embarked on a career in car sales which saw him open a small site in Teynham. With the company growing in size Peter established additional centres to satisfy increased demand before consolidating these in a move to the current West Malling location.
Becoming one of the largest car supermarkets in the UK soon followed and as did our latest site at Blue Bell Hill. Peter has taken Big Motoring World from that single site to what it is today. One of the largest car supermarkets in the UK that holds over 2000 vehicles in stock at any one time.
A true visionary, everything Big Motoring World is today is thanks to Peter’s hard work and unwavering commitment to excellence and it’s apt that he should be the recipient of this award.
Congratulations Peter, from everyone at Big Motoring World.
