Bryan Lloyd, Lloyd Motor Group managing director said: “There were only 36 nominees across six awards categories, so to have been recognised at this level in such a competitive and professional global retailer network is an exceptional honour in itself.

“To win this award is an incredible achievement. It is a testament to our staff and our belief that a people-focussed culture delivers a great customer experience”.

Lloyd BMW has consistently achieved exceptionally high ratings from its customers hence why it is also currently the “BMW UK Retailer of the Year”, holding that accolade for the second consecutive year.

Mark Powell, head of business, accepted the award in Munich.

He said: “At Lloyd Blackpool we know the key to our success is our customers, which is why we strive to put them at the heart of everything we do whether they are choosing a new BMW or maintaining their current one.”
