Acura Awarded Walker Acura the Dealership of Distinction Honors
Metairie, Louisiana, February 8, 2012. Acura has announced that Walker Acura has earned its most prestigious honor the Dealership of Distinction. The award is presented annually to Acura dealers that achieve a rigorous set of objectives in the areas of client satisfaction, training, facility appearance, and finance. This is the Fifth year that Walker Acura has been recognized with Dealership of Distinction status. It is among 96 Acura dealerships across the United States qualifying for this elite recognition.
In 1987, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., established the Dealership of Distinction award to recognize Acura dealerships that exemplify the core values of the brand. Each year the objectives are modified to continually challenge dealerships to excel in all areas of operation. A major component of the program focuses on the client experience and is measured via client satisfaction surveys.
"Acura's Dealerships of Distinction are recognized as the epitome of the Acura brand because they consistently demonstrate their passion for excellence," said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager at Acura. "Earning the award requires dedication and commitment by every team member to go above and beyond the expectations of our valued clients. They have established a level of quality service to which other brands can only wish to aspire.
"Acura is proud to celebrate the accomplishments of our top dealers and their team members by providing a variety of recognition awards. You'll identify their elevated status by the Dealership of Distinction trophy and other signature items displayed throughout each facility," said Conrad. "Whether you are a current Acura client or new to the Acura brand, I encourage you to visit Walker Acura to experience the superior service of an Acura Dealership of Distinction."
Susan Walker, Owner, Walker Acura added, "This distinction means a great deal to me and is not taken lightly by our organization. The Acura Precision Team Award is only achieved by dealerships that offer unceasing and unparalleled performance in every aspect of a dealerships function. I would like to thank everyone for their efforts and support in achieving such a signal honor."
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Acura brand in North America.
