Norfolk Car Dealer's Rising Star Wins Top National Award
The founder of one of Norfolk's most successful new used car retailers has been honoured at the industry's leading awards event.
Jacob Freshwater, who founded Fresh Motors was named the inaugural winner of the Rising Star Award at the 2017 Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards in London.
The finalists were chosen from nominations from around the industry, with Jacob picked from a trio of excellent finalists.
Presenting the award, TV's Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer, who hosted the event, said: "This is a new award which identifies those used car dealers who are working their way towards a bright future in the industry, and Jacob certainly is. From founding his own company just two years ago, his business has gone from strength to strength and his success is to be celebrated."
Speaking afterwards, Jacob said: "I'm absolutely delighted to have won this award".
"We believe in doing things differently, with a modern approach to ensure our customers feel special and that they're getting the very best value when buying their car. We're a new business but we are working incredibly hard to establish ourselves as the very best, and this award is a reflection of all our hard work to achieve that aim."
