Billy Clifford, Service Manager at Reen’s Rathmore, Main Peugeot Dealers in County Kerry, has been awarded Peugeot Service Manager of the Year 2017. The Tralee-man has fifteen years’ experience in the Irish Motor Industry, but has worked at the Reen’s family-run Dealership in Rathmore since just January 2016. Billy was presented with his trophy at the annual Peugeot Aftersales Conference, held at the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel, Dublin on Friday 20th October, attended by 60 Peugeot Parts and Service Managers from across the country.
At the awards-ceremony Billy said, “I’m delighted with the award, in recognition of an excellent Aftersales team here at Reen’s Rathmore. Our goal at Reen’s is to go that bit further each and every time, to serve our local people and local businesses to the best of our ability. I want to thank every one of our customers for their support and loyalty.”
Sean Kearns, Head of Aftersales at Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot Importers in Ireland said, “Billy has proven, in a very short time frame that he has exemplary leadership skills and he has built a tremendously strong Aftersales team around him, which has been duly recognised by Peugeot today. With a wealth of technical and parts knowledge built over the last fifteen years, a strong focus on customer service, and excellent satisfaction ratings, Billy was a clear winner in this year’s competition.”
Holder of a supervisory management college qualification, Billy is married with one son. He stepped into the position of Service Manager at Reen’s just under two years ago. Billy’s trophy has now been added to the trophy cabinet at Reen’s Rathmore; the Kerry Dealership is no stranger to awards having won Peugeot Dealer of the Year 2006 and 2015.
