9th February 2018 Paul Andrews
Top technicians and administrative staff from Hendy in Hampshire are celebrating this week after being honoured at the company’s annual awards ceremony.
The Service Awards were hosted by TV presenter Alex Brooker with entertainment on the night from electric string quartet Escala.
“The evening was a great opportunity to thank all of our employees who work behind the scenes but play a crucial role in the success of the group and reward some incredibly valuable members of staff,” said Hendy chief executive Paul Hendy.
“Last year, we serviced and repaired more than 235,000 vehicles at our dealerships in Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey, Kent, and Devon.”
The key Hall of Fame award was presented to Portsmouth-based Mike Wetherston who joined in 1980 and has played an integral role in the continued success in the group. “Mike has been with us for more than 37 years and has been such a valuable member of the team and instrumental in our success story,” said Paul.
Technicians, service and parts advisors from across the group were honoured for their work and as part of the awards Paul Dittrich who works at Hendy Kia in Eastleigh was named Service Manager of the Year.
Stuart Bailey, Ben Hearn and Ian Allsop from Ford CV in Eastleigh all picked up awards and there was success too for Portsmouth Honda service advisor Simon Kenny and Southampton Honda parts advisor Richard Hellman.
The Service Team of the Year award went to Eastleigh Ford, Mazda and Kia.
