Ferrari Names H.R. Owen its Global Dealer of the Year

Legendary Italian carmaker, Ferrari, has named H.R. Owen its Global Dealer of the Year at the prestigious Ferrari Annual Dealer Meeting held in Fortezza da Basso in Florence, Italy.

Presenting for Ferrari at the ceremony were President Sergio Marchionne and CEO Amedeo Felisa, and representing H.R. Owen were a variety of staff including CEO Mamad Kashani, Service Manager Tony Vaccaro, Marketing Manager Owen Rothwell, Brand Director James Champion, and Sales Manager Shawn Thom.

The award truly reflects the passion and commitment shown by the entire H.R. Owen Ferrari family as this global achievement is offered purely on business and operational performance—it is awarded following an in-depth inspection that evaluates a huge number of dealership variables.

Unlike the other finalists for the award (a dealership in Singapore, and another in Vancouver, Canada) H.R. Owen’s South Kensington, Knightsbridge, St Albans and Acton, dealerships recorded an unprecedented series of perfect scores—unblemished 100% grades—tipping the scales in H.R. Owen’s favour.

The joy felt across H.R. Owen following the announcement was most aptly surmised by Brand Director, James Champion who said, “It is an enormous honour to be given this award and [we are] delighted with the hard work the whole team puts in.”

As a final coup de grâce, Ferrari presented H.R. Owen with a trophy well-beyond the norm—a 2015 Ferrari Formula 1 car.

This fantastic symbol of the H.R. Owen Ferrari team’s hard work will be proudly displayed for all to enjoy at the London dealership.
