A WIGAN boss is celebrating after being crowned Manager of the Year at a national UK motor industry event.

Jacqui Kaye, from Corkills Volkswagen, received the Dealer Principle of the Year award at the annual AM awards, which recognises the very best in the automotive retail sector.

She was presented with her award at the glittering award ceremony by BBC newsreader Sophie Raworth after impressing judges with her resourceful management style and approachable leadership qualities.

Ms Kaye said: “I am delighted to have won this award. The AM Awards are a memorable event and are well respected by everybody in the business. To be recognised as the country’s best dealer principal is a complete honour, I am truly thrilled.

“I see this award as a tribute to what is more than just a typical car retailer. I have great team who are all very committed to looking after all of our customers.

“Even after two years in the role I relish the challenge to continually enhance our service and strengthen the business,”

Corkills Volkswagen’s business manager, James McVicker, was also shortlisted for the Business Manager of the Year award.

“To have not one, but two Corkills representatives make it as finalists is further testament to our commitment of aiming to be the best,” added Jacqui.

“James thoroughly deserves this acknowledgement. He really is an asset to the team,”

“I would like to congratulate each and every member of the Corkills team. The success we have experienced is all down to their hard work and dedication.”
