Brown and Hurley Kenworth DAF Darra has been named the 2020 DAF Dealer of the Year for the fifth time.
The DAF Dealer of the Year award acknowledges the dealer’s performance across all areas of their DAF business, and recognises excellence in truck sales, parts sales, service, finance and overall customer support. Brown and Hurley Kenworth DAF Darra exceeded in each of these areas throughout 2020.
The Brown and Hurley Group is a wholly family owned Australian company and is celebrating 75 years of operation in the Australian transport industry in 2021. The group employs over 400 people across nine branches throughout Queensland and northern New South Wales. Since it began all those years ago, the group has forged strong relationships with its customers.
“In a year that was like no other, the dealership continued to exceed their targets across the entire business and offer outstanding service and support to their DAF customers,” said Brad May, Director Sales and Marketing for PACCAR Australia.
Matt Innes, Dealer Principal of Brown and Hurley Kenworth DAF Darra is extremely proud of his team for winning the award. “It was a year that presented us with many challenges and one that won’t be forgotten. To cap off the year with this award is a great result for the whole dealership. It is an honour to have the trophy back on display at the dealership, and just reward for the team who pulled together to make it happen,” he said.
“We had a strong focus on improving our market position with the DAF product and last year we exceeded most of our targets. A majority of our DAF business last year was new customers, which is great and something we expect to see more of as more operators get behind the wheel of the awesome new DAF product.
“We cannot achieve these results without the support of PACCAR and the DAF Trucks Australia team. The strong relationship we have forged with them has certainly gone a long way to our success. I would like to thank all of the PACCAR team for their support whilst working in the challenging and restrictive times through COVID.
“Lastly, I would personally like to congratulate my staff for their continued hard work and support towards our dealership across Sales, PacLease, Parts & Service and their belief and commitment to the PACCAR brands, products and services.”
