Toyota Motor Europe awards 45 top performing retailers in Europe for Customer Recommendation

Toyota Motor Europe (TME) announced the winners of the 2017 “Ichiban” European Customer Recommendation Award during a festive event held in Antwerp, Belgium.

Antwerp, Belgium – May 16th, 2017 – Customer First philosophy has always been a focus of Toyota and is part of the company’s DNA. With this principle in mind a total of 45 awards were presented to retailers from 33 markets, in recognition of their excellent performance in Customer Recommendation results both in Sales and After Sales. This year exceptional recognition was given to the retailers who have won eight and nine times in the past 11 years.

This customer minded philosophy was recognised by Dr. Johan van Zyl, President and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe, during his speech at the awards ceremony, where he told the assembled high performing retailers: “You have demonstrated how putting the customer first drives business success”. He went on to add “Toyota wants to be number one in customer recommendation in every market in Europe. The most important goal is to be number one in the hearts and minds of our customers everywhere.”

In total, 2,300 European retailers took part in the evaluation process where they were measured on their customer recommendation and business performance. It was the highest performing of these that were invited to join TME Top Management and their peers to celebrate their success.
