Truck dealership CMI Adelaide named Hino Metropolitan Dealer of the Year

They must be doing something right at Hino at Regency Park in Adelaide to clock up two wins in a row as the brand’s Metropolitan Dealer of the Year

A determined bunch of Hino dealers from throughout Australia gathered this month, in-person, to celebrate the group’s achievements from 2022.

Gone was the virtual awards ceremonies of the past few years, with face to face conversations back in, and the anxious wait for winners to be announced experienced live, rather than in a desk chair in front of a screen.

One of the biggest winners on the night came from an Adelaide dealership who took to the podium for the second year in a row.

“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,” Hino president and CEO Sam Suda says.

“It is the second consecutive Dealer of the Year title for CMI Hino Adelaide, which is an amazing achievement,” he says.

Hino Adelaides GM Nathan Chatfield says the win comes down to the hard work of his team.

“We are a very proud, long term Hino dealer – Hino is in our blood and our DNA,” Chatfield says.

“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.”

CMI Hino Adelaide also won the Service Excellence Award and was a recipient of the prestigious President’s Award.

“The 2022 recipients of the President’s Award demonstrated excellence in all aspects of Parts, Sales and Service and I congratulate each dealership team for their efforts during 2022,” Suda says.

“My sincere thanks to all of the dealers in the Hino network for their efforts to deliver an exceptional experience to all Hino customers during 2022.

“Tonight was all about showing our gratitude to our dealer network, and the night was as prestigious as they come.

“Congratulations to those whose excellence has been recognised,” he concluded.

The Awards ceremony was hosted at the Intercontinental Brisbane on February 24 and attended by 260 guests.

On display at the awards was a replica of the Hino-sponsored #20 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which will be raced by Team 18’s Scott Pye at the Thrifty Newcastle 500 on March 10-12, 2023, as part of Hino Australia’s long-standing partnership with Supercars Team 18.
