ONE of Australia’s latest Skoda dealerships has won an impressive double crown at the brand’s dealer awards, announced in Prague as part of the Czech brand’s international dealer conference.

Kevin Dennis Skoda of Deer Park in Victoria won the brand’s double crown after being named both National Dealer of the Year and Metro Dealer of the Year. In addition, the dealership won the Skoda Financial Services Dealer of the Year award.

The dealership is part of a family-owned company that has been serving the Deer Park area, west of Melbourne, since the 1960s and was one of six Australian Skoda outlets rewarded for excellence and presented with their awards in front of an international audience.

Skoda Australia’s remaining three awards categories went to Newcastle Skoda (Provincial Dealer of the Year), Hobart Skoda (Rural Dealer of the Year) and Bayside Skoda of Cheltenham in Victoria (Skoda Excellence Award, encompassing multiple facets of the business).
