SUPERIOR SERVICE AND CUSTOMER SATISFACTION EARNS GRESHAM FORD OF GRESHAM NATIONAL AWARD BY FORD MOTOR COMPANY

Gresham Ford is among an elite group of Ford dealerships to be recognized with The 2009 President’s Award by Ford Motor Company. The prestigious award honors dealerships that have excelled in automotive retailing in 2009, by providing exceptional customer service and satisfaction.




This year, Ford honors 380 Ford dealers across the country for delivering a superior customer experience in sales, service and overall ownership of their Ford vehicles.



“We are so proud of this award, especially since it comes from our customers,” said Bess Wills, General Manager at Gresham Ford. “Our entire staff is committed to delivering the best customer experience possible and we’re very pleased to be recognized for that.”



Gresham Ford also is known for its active participation in community events and, through Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program and other efforts, has raised more than $10,000 for area schools in recent years.



The President’s Award was developed in 1998. Dealers become eligible through survey responses from customers related to their service, satisfaction and overall dealership experience.



“The President’s Award signifies our gratitude for those dealers who reach beyond daily tasks and make a difference to their customers,” says Frederiek Toney, vice president of Ford Customer Service Division. “We award our dealers for their outstanding commitment to our customers because just as Ford strives to deliver the highest quality products and technologies to customers, our dealers share that same passion in providing a world-class experience in vehicle sales and service.”
