Hino celebrates dealer excellence for 2022

Much like most truck makers in Australia last year Hino had a lot to celebrate. Its dealers award paid tribute to the individuals that help to spread their brand legacy.

The Australian arm of the Japanese truck manufacturers Hino has celebrated the hard work of its dealer network last year with its Dealer of the Year awards ceremony.

The awards bring recognition to the many hardworking individuals that represent the Hino brand around the country. The two major awards were broken into a metro and regional category.

Metropolitan Dealer of the Year again has gone to CMI Hino Adelaide, while Sci-Fleet Hino Gold Coast won the Regional Dealer of the Year title.

President and CEO of Hino Australia. Sam Suda says it was great for the event to be back happening physically.

“After a tumultuous few years which saw last year’s event hosted virtually, it was important for our dealers to gather together and celebrate all of the achievements in 2022.

“It is the second consecutive Dealer of the Year title for CMI Hino Adelaide, which is an amazing achievement.
“For Sci-Fleet Hino Gold Coast, this is their first Dealer of the Year award, which is a feat the whole team should be congratulated for.,” Suda says.
Nathan Chatfield, General Manager of the very high performing CMI Hino Adelaide paid tribute to his team when accepting the award for the fourth time.

The South Australian based dealership also took out  2022 Service Excellence Award.  

“We are a very proud, long term Hino dealer – Hino is in our blood and our DNA.
“The CMI Hino Adelaide team is such a wonderful group of people who work incredibly hard at everything they do, and this award is a very fitting tribute to their efforts,” Chatfield says.
CMI Hino wasn’t the only dealership to take home multiple awards either. With Sci-Fleet Hino Gold Coast, being awarded not only the Sales Excellence (Regional) title for the second year but the Service Excellence (Regional) title as well.
Sci-Fleet Hino Gold Coast Dealer Principal Craig Andersson says he is honoured.

“This award has been 12 years in the making and wasn’t something we dared to dream about, but it is nice to receive.
“I am incredibly proud to receive award on behalf of the hard-working team at Sci Fleet Gold Coast,” Andersson says.
Other branches of the successful CMI and Sci-fleet dealership also received the  prestigious President’s Award. They were joined by Barry Maney Hino (Mt Gambier), which received it for the first time.

CMI Hino Adelaide, Jacob Hino (Albury-Wodonga), Sci-Fleet Hino Brisbane, Sci-Fleet Hino Gold Coast and CMI Hino Melbourne were all recipients of the award.
