The Diamond Dealer Awards showcase exceptional accomplishments in sales, customer service and overall dealership excellence among the marque’s auto retailers. A badge of honour for recipients, Diamond Dealer status is only conferred to the best of the best within the Mitsubishi dealer network.

“Our high-performing dealer network is at the centre of our success, and our annual Diamond Dealer awards night provides the chance to recognise and celebrate the hard-earned achievement of our standout performers,” said MMNZ chief operating officer Tony Johnston.

This is the second time that Ingham Mitsubishi Te Awamutu has received Mitsubishi’s acclaimed Diamond Dealer crown, having also won the coveted title in 2022.

Delighted to have been rewarded with this prestigious distinction, Dealer Principal Stefan Cooper credits the collective efforts of his staff in reaching this remarkable result.

“Winning the award again is a significant milestone for the Ingham Mitsubishi Te Awamutu team,” he confirmed. “Reflecting the hard work and dedication of every department, it highlights outstanding levels of staff performance over the past 12 months. From sales to service, our entire team has been operating at the top of their game and contributed to this success by ensuring every customer experience was first-rate.”

Sharing his pride in this achievement, Group Managing Director Trent Ingham, equally expressed his gratitude for the trust and support of the dealership’s valued customers.

“I couldn’t be prouder of our team at Ingham Mitsubishi Te Awamutu. Their continued focus on customer satisfaction, vehicle sales and service excellence has led to winning the Diamond Dealer award for the second time, and it’s clear that this small, tight-knit team punches well above their weight on a national level.

“Additionally, I would like to thank our loyal customers – their ongoing trust and unwavering support have helped make accomplishments like this possible. As a group, we are committed to maintaining the high standards that people have come to expect from Ingham and we look forward to serving our community with integrity and excellence for many more years to come.”
