Congratulations to the team at Marshall SKODA Northampton who were awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the “Most Improved Dealership of the Year”. Well done to Steve Dunn (General Manager), Neil Day (Sales Manager) & Jules Horlick (Aftersales Manager) for all your hard work and dedication. You and your team should be very proud against fierce competition including two fellow Marshall dealerships in Marshall Jaguar Land Rover Oxford and Marshall Volkswagen South Oxford. 

Congratulations to Marshall Jaguar Land Rover Oxford who picked up the highly prized “Sales Team of the Year” Award. This accolade illustrated that even during a difficult year with lockdown scenarios and stock shortages, the team was able to deliver a best-in-class performance and customer experience. Well done Sam Clarke (Head of Business), Jonathan Greenwood (Land Rover Sales Manager), Dean Cozens (Jaguar Sales Manager) and both sales teams for a sparkling year!

And last be not least, we are also delighted to share that Marshall retained the coveted headline “Employer of the Year” award! 

The entry criteria for the award focused on the colleague engagement programmes that Marshall have in place, the Great Place to Work ethos, how Marshall stand out from their competitors and of course how Marshall have dealt with the pandemic.

This prestigious award recognises how the business was lead through these unprecedented times and the actions Marshall took as a management team (and also at retailer level).

Daksh Gupta, Chief Executive said “Any industry award is always nice to collect, however, the big one for me is this one - Motor Trader “Employer of the Year” award. People make or break any business. To pick up this award for a second year in a row recognises the importance we at Marshall Motor Group place on ensuring we have the right culture within the business. 

This is also demonstrated by the fact the company has been rated as a Great Place to Work® for 12 years in a row and ranked in the best UK workplaces for seven years in a row.

All colleagues at Marshall should feel proud today as they all help to create the culture that’s so special, well done team Marshall. I’m also incredibly proud of our teams who were shortlisted and highly commended - very well done.”

Marshall Motor Group are immensely proud to have walked away with two such prestigious wins, and would like to thank both colleagues and customers for the continued support over 2021, as well as Motor Trader Magazine for the kind recognition of our efforts.

Rounding off a spectacular year, Marshall hope to see further success in 2022, alongside their strengthened position as a Top 10 Dealer Group.
