The Wisbech St Mary dealership received the prestigious prize at the ‘United in Success’ event hosted by the manufacturer at the Grosvenor Hotel, London.

The award recognises the dealership’s performance in vehicle sales, aftersales and customer quality categories compared to other similar-sized dealers.

JS Holmes also won the Nissan Customer Quality Retailer of the Year award based on its sales and aftersales figures in its sector.

Sales director Alex Holmes was presented commemorative plaques by Nissan brand ambassador Sir Chris Hoy at the end of a conference to celebrate the company’s success in the last year.

Mr Holmes said: “To win these awards is such a huge honour. I would like to pay tribute to the hard work of all my staff throughout the year in achieving this accolade.

“The Overall Retailer of the Year award recognises our performance across all categories – it means we are hugely successful in each area of our business.”

Nissan Motor (GB) Managing director James Wright said: “2014 was a record-breaking year for Nissan in the UK and our network must take much of the credit for our success.

“It’s great to be able to recognise the best-performing dealerships in the network with an award and to be able to thank them personally for the contribution they have made.”

The awards coincide with some extensive refurbishment. There is a new service reception integrated into the showroom, while the workshop has two new ramps.

It has also been a strong start to 2015 for JS Holmes – in March the dealership sold 100 cars (new and used) for the first time in its history.
