Isuzu announces 2023 top dealers

Two of Isuzu Australia’s Victorian dealerships have been recognised at its annual Dealer of the Year awards

Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) has announced the winners of its Dealer of the Year awards at its annual ceremony. 

Regional Victoria dealership Ballarat Isuzu was awarded the top prize alongside the Sales Dealer of the Year and Service Dealer of the Year awards, while Patterson Cheney Trucks in Melbourne claimed the Parts Dealer of the Year gong. 

Isuzu says the awards evaluate dealerships across multiple operational areas, including customer care, servicing, parts, sales, training attendance and inventory management. 

“It is the efforts of dealerships like Ballarat Isuzu and Patterson Cheney Trucks that help to shape the brand and what it can offer,” IAL sales and aftersales chief Ben Lasry says. 

“In particular, the team at Ballarat Isuzu, led by Dealer Principal Ian Deacon, have greatly impressed everyone at IAL with their dedication to improving not only their own operation, but also the outcomes that they can achieve for their customers.” 

The win marks the third time Ballarat’s Isuzu dealership has been awarded the Dealer of the Year. It’s also the second consecutive year that it has taken out all three categories. 

“It’s great to be part of the Isuzu family and celebrate a record year of sales, we can’t wait to see the next generation of trucks that are on the horizon,” Deacon says. 

Patterson Cheney general manager John Elliot says a lot of effort has been put into the dealership. 

IAL network development head Nathan Ton says it is important that Isuzu recognises the contributions of its dealers as well as celebrating another strong year. 

“Congratulations to Ballarat Isuzu and Patterson Cheney and indeed all of our hard-working teams around the country,” Ton says. 

“We are looking forward to another cracking year ahead with your unshakable support.”
