I would like to take this opportunity to thank the judges and the people that voted for me. Most of all I want to thank our Board, management team and 4,000 colleagues who have been magnificent, they have gone above and beyond during the challenging year of 2020. I accept this award on behalf of them.”

Daksh continued: “Marshall has a fantastic team and I am extremely privileged and proud to work alongside them. 2020 was the seventh consecutive year the Company was ranked as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces. This honour has built up over the last 11 years in which the Company has achieved Great Place to Work® status. People are 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 … this award is absolutely for them!”

The Dealers’ Dealer Award commended Daksh as having exceptional interpersonal skills, a natural trend-spotter, consistently approachable and ready to offer advice despite his immensely busy schedule – attributes that truly set Daksh apart.

Well done Daksh. And well done to Anthony and Ali.
