Iveco Australia has just announced its annual national dealer awards at a glittering ceremony in Melbourne. AV Trucks in Redcliffe WA scored national recognition in three critical categories, Parts Management, Medium and Heavy-Duty sales, and Sales Management.
Top of the awards was the performance of Gary Humbert - probably the most experienced parts specialist in Western Australia. From the early 70s he has been supplying much-needed parts to single operators and fleets across all brands. At AV Trucks he sources the entire Iveco range, plus a wide range of parts for US-built products. He joined AV Trucks in 1984.
Gary’s expertise makes sure AV Trucks’ Iveco customers are on the road full-time with minimal parts disruptions, even during the nightmare supply issues that have plagued manufacturers worldwide and continue to stretch supply chains.
AV Trucks posted record sales in 2022, even with a severe tightening of product availability, and the recognition of runner-up in the medium and heavy-duty market sector is an acknowledgement that with Iveco’s range of top-spec European trucks the dealership is in tune with the specialist needs of owners and operators alike. New models this year will only boost that performance.
Along with that truck sales record, Brian Vernon was recognised with runner-up in the dealership sales management category. Brian has worked in the motor vehicle and truck industry for nearly 40 years. His previous management positions at companies such as Howard Porters, Diesel Motors, AFGRI Benz, Freightliner Trucks Geraldton and John Deere showcase a wide range of experience. Brian is well placed to provide the market knowledge, product sales and after-care truck owners demand in today’s highly competitive market.
