Rüsselsheim.  Opel honoured the winners of the Dealer of The Year competition at a prize-giving last weekend in Croatia. The German brand is currently presenting the new Corsa to the international press in a multi-day event on the Croatian Adriatic coast. Out of more than 1,650 Opel and Vauxhall dealers in 20 markets, Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller presented awards to the 29 best dealers, the three best dealer groups and the best importer.

“The winning dealers and their employees deliver extraordinary achievements every day” said Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller at the prize-giving in Split. “They are the ones connecting with our customers, they are the ambassadors for our innovative automobiles. That is precisely why customer satisfaction is such an important criterion of this award. Such achievements are only possible with a highly motivated team. This team spirit is typical of Opel – and our customers know it.”
