TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - Mercedes-Benz Canada recognized the outstanding achievements of its top-performing dealers today by announcing the 2010 Star Dealers list. This highly coveted designation identifies the top nine authorized Mercedes-Benz dealers, and acknowledges the important contributions they have made in 2009 to the overall success of the brand within Canada.
The prestigious Star Dealers are selected from the company's entire national dealer network, and the winners are determined based on overall performance in five separate categories: new and pre-owned sales, service and parts, and customer satisfaction.
The award-winning dealers (from East to West) are as follows:
Lorne Brett Tri Star Fine Cars Saint John, NB
Maurice Parent Chatel Automobiles Québec, QC
Luc Duval Duval Mercedes-Benz Boucherville, QC
Danny Champagne Mercedes-Benz Montreal Montréal, QC
Sam Eltes Automobiles Silver Star Montréal, QC
Gilles Leblanc Mercedes-Benz Laval Laval, QC
Mark Dube Mercedes-Benz Downtown Toronto, ON
Jonathan Pushka Mercedes-Benz Midtown Toronto, ON
John Angelucci Mercedes-Benz Barrie Barrie, ON
"This year's Star Dealers list recognizes a truly exceptional group of dealers," said Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada. "I congratulate each one of them for their significant accomplishments, and thank them for their respective contributions to our record-breaking success in 2009."
He added, "While the annual Star Dealers program only recognizes nine dealers, it is very important to note that last year's records could not have been achieved without the combined efforts of the remainder of our dealers and all Mercedes-Benz Canada employees. With significant sales growth and high levels of customer satisfaction, we surpassed previously established benchmarks and recorded many milestones throughout the year. Our hard-working team shares an unwavering dedication to the three pointed star, and collectively we will remain clearly focused on providing an unsurpassed ownership experience for customers."
