Daksh Gupta, Chief Executive said: “The AM Awards represent the pinnacle of automotive retailing achievement and the colleagues at the shortlisted and winning dealerships deserve their time in the spotlight. I am incredibly proud to see Marshall’s talent recognised and to see Marshall pick up so many awards across a broad range of business disciplines including all three of the headline categories.”

Upon receiving the “Dealer Group of the Year” Award, Daksh commented: “This is a huge honour and up against some formidable competition and fantastic operators, all of whom I respect enormously. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Board, management team and all of our colleagues who have been fantastic and have gone above and beyond during the last 18 months. People are truly at the heart of our business and creating a positive working environment and culture for every colleague has a huge positive impact on our business … the Dealer Group of the Year award is absolutely for them!”

The final award of the evening saw our late Chairman, Professor Richard Parry-Jones CBE inducted into the “AM Hall of Fame” – in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the automotive industry. Richard’s wife, Sara, was in attendance (as a guest of Marshall) and gave moving speech, receiving a standing ovation from the packed ICC. This was a wonderful and fitting tribute to our much loved Chairman who passed away in April this year.

Well done to all the winners and those retailers who made the shortlist – another fantastic acknowledgement of Marshall and our colleagues!
