Commercial Vehicle Dealer David Spear Wins British Excellence in Sales Management Award


Leading commercial vehicle dealer David Spear has been awarded the Senior Leadership Team of the Year accolade at this year’s British Excellence in Sales Management Awards (BESMA). This is the second major national award that the renowned dealership has won this year.

Earlier this year the company won the prestigious Business Transformation of the Year accolade at the 10th annual Auto Trader Click Awards. The company was also recently shortlisted for the Commercial Motors Independent Dealer of Year and Technician Team of the Year.

“This is our second national award this year, following on from our Business Transformation success at the London based Auto Trader Click Awards in July. This latest success recognises the talent in our leadership team, who have worked tirelessly to deliver the business strategy and have steered the business to unprecedented growth this year,” said Director David Spear.

Despite registrations of light commercial vehicles declining nationwide, the Tredegar headquartered firm has recently reported impressive sales growth of 26% year-on-year. The company celebrated their best month to date this October with unit sales up by over 50% in comparison to the same period in 2016. Securing the Senior Leadership Team of the Year title is the latest development in the company’s long running success story.

BESMA Awards and Sales Summit 2017 rewards the best sales professionals serving a multitude of industry sectors throughout the UK. By recognising the achievements and products of these professionals across a series of awards, BESMA aims to promote the art of selling country-wide. The glittering ceremony, which took place on Thursday 9th November 2017 at Old Billingsgate London, was hosted by award winning comedian, writer and host Jimmy Carr.

 “This is another big statement about our business success and our desire to embrace change, meet our customers’ needs and drive our business forward. We are proud and honoured to win the accolade, and gain recognition for our hard work,” concluded David.
