Crossley Holden manager recognised

CROSSLEY Holden has been acknowledged for outstanding customer service with a Holden Hall of Legends Award.

Sales manager Troy Jackson will travel to Thailand in April to accept the honour at Holden's annual awards night.

Mr Jackson received an all-expenses paid, five-day trip for two from Holden for Crossley's efforts during the trying times that followed Cyclone Debbie.

"I'm pretty excited, I've never been overseas before,” Mr Jackson said.

The trip is an acknowledgement of his leadership efforts in the delivery of the seven cars Crossley distributed to locals in need on behalf of Holden.

Holden supplied the vehicles in the wake of Cyclone Debbie and the team at Crossley were more than happy to distribute them. The cars arrived in the region on the Thursday before Good Friday and the team worked well into the night to ensure the recipients received the loan cars.

"We were delivering the cars from the Macca's carpark off the back of the truck,” Mr Jackson said.

The instigator behind the whole operation, Mr Jackson said "everyone pulled together to make it happen”. It's the small town attitude that Mr Jackson said "makes it easy to go the extra mile.”

"Owner of Crossley Ben Hancock is extremely focused on providing exceptional customer service and the dealership is a really good environment to work in,” Mr Jackson said.

"Crossley ensure they go above and beyond to deliver an exceptional standard of customer service and receiving this award from Holden and to the team means more than any sales award.”
