FJ Chalke Yeovil Recognised With President’s Acceleration Award

With dealerships across the UK re-opening in June following the UK wide lockdown FJ Chalke in Yeovil 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 FJ Chalke Yeovil temporarily closed their doors back in March they worked incredibly hard with reduced staffing levels to ensure staff and customers were kept updated with weekly internal communications, daily assistance via the website enquiry channels and daily posts on their social media accounts. After re opening their doors in June they have worked hard across its whole business to get back on track by introducing new processes in the showroom and online, plus introducing safety guidelines across the business. Staff and Customer safety was paramount, but they were determined to re ignite that social connection with their customers by offering the best personal experience possible.

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."

Mark Swain, Branch Director at FJ Chalke spoke of being given the award "Steve, Ross, Martyn, Kevin and John 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."
