Kia’s President and CEO Paul Philpott commented; “It’s been a challenging year for everyone and the whole of our dealer network has worked tirelessly to gain back momentum and sales since re-opening in June. We appreciate that each of our dealers has faced unprecedented challenges and the ‘President’s Acceleration Awards’ highlights those that have really excelled and pulled through together.”
