A CAR dealership in Dursley has scooped three awards at a major dealership group’s annual conference.

Dursley Mitsubishi was named sales department of the year at a conference for the CCR Mitsubishi group at the Marriott Hotel in Swindon.

Two members of staff from the dealership at Mill Garage, Draycott, also won individual awards, with David Facey taking sales executive of the year and Wayne Ball crowned technician of the year.

Brand manager at Dursley Mitsubishi, Gary Barney, said: “It’s a real honour that we have taken the award for sales department of the year and it’s a reflection of the hard work that the whole team puts in on a daily basis.

“It’s fantastic that David and Wayne have been rewarded for their individual efforts, both of them are excellent members of the team and I’m delighted for them.

“I’m really proud of what we have achieved in the last year and we’re looking forward to a great 2014.”

“The team at Dursley Mitsubishi do fantastic work and it’s only right that they receive these awards, they thoroughly deserve them.

“They have a brilliant reputation for excellent customer care and these awards are testament to their hard work. We are lucky to have a great team across our dealerships and this ceremony was our way of saying thank you.”
