George Corbett is Skoda dealer of the year

Waterford-based George Corbett Motors has won the Skoda Dealer Of The Year award, handed out at a prize-giving event in Prague.

Two other prizes

The award, presented by Skoda Ireland, was accompanied by other wins on the night for Corbett's, which also took home the prizes for Best Aftersales Dealer and Best Financial Services Dealer 2022.

At the awards ceremony, John Donegan, Brand Director, Skoda Ireland, said, "To be awarded Skoda Dealer of the Year requires outstanding commercial achievements and exceptional customer service. The Team at George Corbett Motors have demonstrated this in spades over the last twelve months. I would like to congratulate George and his team and thank them for their continued success."

The entire team

George Corbett commented: "We are delighted to have been awarded Skoda Dealer of the Year, 2022. This award could not have been won without the commitment of the entire team at George Corbett Motors. I would like to give credit to the unseen team in finance and administration, our aftersales team, including our technicians, valeters and apprentices who work hard to prepare and maintain our customer's vehicles. Receipt of this award is confirmation of the high customer standards we have implemented at George Corbett Motors. In particular, I would like to acknowledge the efforts of our Skoda Brand Manager Stephen Moore, our Aftersales Manager Fran Kehoe and our Business Manager Trevor Harris."

Corbett's moved to its current premises on the Cork Road in Waterford in 2003, having traded for 28 years previously at its Park Road site. In 2022, it had a bumper year, increasing its share of the Waterford car market to nine per cent and enjoying associations with Waterford GAA and Bohemians' Soccer Club.
