South Yorkshire fleet sales manager Tony Dent has been named Mercedes Benz fleet manager of the year.
Mr Dent started as a sales executive with Mercedes Benz in Sheffield in 2002 and worked his way up to sales controller, sales manager and then corporate sales manager for South Yorkshire, covering Sheffield, Doncaster and Chesterfield, in 2008.
He was nominated for the award after achieving a 54 per cent growth in sales and growing all of his key accounts.
Mr Dent was among five shortlisted managers who attended an assessment day at Mercedes Benz head office which consisted of team exercises, interviews and presentations.
Tony Dent said: “I cannot take full credit for this and want to share the title with the hard working corporate team at Sheffield – they are a great bunch and we all work hard together.”
He received his award at a ceremony held at Mercedes Benz World at Brooklands in Surrey, site of the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit.
