Nick Senior Managing Director AT the recent release of the Forester to our dealer network in Sydney, I was delighted to announce the zone and national winners of the Retailer of the Year award. Each who achieved a zone win deserves high praise, but the best of the best in 2012 was Key Motors in Townsville, under the excellent leadership of DP, Scott McElligott. The regional winners for 2012 were: y Northern – Key Motors y Brisbane – Garry Crick Subaru Maroochydore y Eastern – Crossroads Subaru, Glendale y Sydney – Denlo Subaru, Parramatta y Southern – Geelong Subaru y Central – Jarvis Subaru, Adelaide y Melbourne – Subaru Glen Waverley y Tasmania – Neil Buckby Motors, Launceston y Western – Bunbury Subaru Another reason to celebrate was the establishment of a new annual sales record of 40,189 in 2012. I was also pleased to be able to recognise three people who have made an outstanding contribution to Subaru in Australia. Firstly was Geoff Heaton - one of the characters in the network. He has solely worked on Subaru for 30 years and his blood runs thick with blue boxer blood. Secondly, was Neville Cooper, who ran a solus operation in a small Victorian town for 35 years, but has now decided to step back and is in the process of selling down his share. Finally, I paid tribute to Chris Wowk, another Subaru stalwart who has decided to step aside to spend some time travelling and chilling out. Chris has been one of only two female DPs and has done an outstanding job in Canberra for Subaru, for her employers, for the brand and for the region. All three will be missed. NEW FORESTER 2.0XT The launch of the new generation Forester 2.0XT to the national motoring media in north east Victoria on January 22, has already seen the new model attract great acclaim in the press and online. For all the Forester news, see pages three and five.
