Major industry accolade for John Holland

Our general manager has been named the nation’s number one dealer principal at one of the UK’s most distinguished industry award ceremonies.

Tony Entwistle, general manager at our Meadowhall Road-based showroom, was crowned Dealer Principal of the Year at Car Dealer Magazine’s Used Car Awards in central London.

And the success on the night didn’t stop there for John Holland, as we were also Highly Commended in the Used Car Retailer of the Year (51-100 cars) category.

Tony, who joined John Holland in 2006 as a full-time buyer before making the step up to general manager in 2012, said: “We’re delighted to have been recognised in two categories at the Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards and enjoyed a fantastic night in London.

“During my time at John Holland we’ve enjoyed incredible success and it’s been a privilege to oversee such rapid growth and expansion. It was a very proud moment, seeing both mine and the business’s names up in lights – and to also be recognised in the Used Car Retailer of the Year category is fantastic for our dealership.

“Enjoying success in not one but two categories is reward for the diligent work of our excellent team.”

James Baggott, publisher of Car Dealer Magazine, said: “I congratulate all our winners at the 2017 Used Car Awards for their achievements.

“This year, the standards were higher than ever, and as we worked through the hundreds of nominations we received, it was clear that dealers are trying harder than ever to give customers the best sales experiences.”
