PEUGEOT has presented a Basingstoke dealership with its prestigious Guild of Gold Lion Award in recognition of its performance in 2013.

City Peugeot, which is part of City Motor Holdings, and is based at the group’s six-acre Autoplaza, off Aldermaston Road, received the standard – establishing it as being among the very best Peugeot dealers in the UK.

The accolade is awarded for outstanding and consistent customer service, sales performance, outstanding customer feedback, and for having the very latest products and specifications in the showroom.

David Bell, City Peugeot Group operations director, who is also responsible for dealerships in Newbury and Reading, said that only 35 of the 236 Peugeot dealerships across the UK are selected for the award.

He added: “It’s fantastic for the 60-strong team at Peugeot Basingstoke to have achieved this award, and for us to be recognised as one of the very best dealers in the UK.

“The Guild of Gold Lion Award gives Peugeot the opportunity to recognise dealers who perform at the highest level and who go that extra mile for customers.

“At City Peugeot, we are committed to providing outstanding customer service with every dealership doing all it can to ensure that every customer is special.

“To be recognised as a Guild of Gold Lion Dealer is a real accomplishment, and to have our Peugeot dealership come away with the award is a fantastic achievement of which we’re very proud.”

Mr Bell said: “Everyone at City Peugeot plays an important role in our success and I’d like to thank all the team for making this possible.”
