Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the country’s official distributor of Hyundai vehicles, honored San Juan Group’s Hyundai Commonwealth Avenue as its 2019 Dealer of the Year in Passenger Car (PC) at the first virtual HARI Dealer of the Year Awards (DOYA) 2020.
Hyundai Commonwealth Avenue (HCA), under the helm of Atty. Anna Lyne P. San Juan-Ponferrada, stood out from among the 42-strong Hyundai PC dealerships nationwide for topping HARI standards in the key areas of Sales, After Sales, Customer Relations Management, and Parts Operations.
This is the second Dealer of the Year Award for Hyundai Commonwealth. It also bagged the top award in 2012.
This year’s HARI DOYA turned out more meaningful amid the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak. Celebrated virtually, the year’s theme, THE GREAT RESET, reflects HARI’s new approach and renewed drive toward delivering #BetterJourneys to its customers.
Said HARI President and CEO Maria Fe Perez-Agudo, “The pandemic cannot stop us from giving honor and recognition where its rightfully due. The COVID-19 virus has turned mobility upside-down. Yet amidst this topsy-turvy world, we faced our fears and joined forces like never before to create our own Better Normal ecosystem.”
“Thank you HARI for this recognition. From Ms. Fe, the executives, officers, and staff who have helped us along the way, all these years. Thank you. To our Hyundai Commonwealth family, this is your award! We are so blessed to have a competent, passionate and dedicated team. All your hard work has paid off. Thank you very much and job well done!,” said HCA President Atty. Anna Lyne P. San Juan-Ponferrada.
Atty San Juan-Ponferrada added, “To our Chairman and matriarch, Boss Amang and Ma’am Baby, thank you for all the guidance, the support and trust that you have given us. We dedicate this to you. You are our inspiration and our driving force. We will not be here without you both.”
HARI’s President cited the dealerships’ positive response to rebound and recover from these unprecedented times. These include strong support to implement the Hyundai Guidelines for Protection and Safety (GPS), the first in the industry, to quickly get the business back on its feet. GPS is a comprehensive set of procedures and programs designed to safeguard the well-being of stakeholders, restore consumer confidence, and win back customers in the New Normal. It is backed by its twin core programs in Sales (HOMEPage) and After Sales (ARMOR).
After congratulating the year’s DOYA champs, Ms. Agudo concluded, “RESET (for R-esilience, E-xecution, S-yngery, Customer E-xperience, T-enacity) has and will be our lifestyle and mindset for the months to come. As I always say, we can always be more and do more in the face of uncertainty… We don’t REST. We RESET with the hope that, once this darkness passes, we will emerge tall and strong and ready for Better Journeys ahead.”
