The dealership was third place in the Audi rural dealer of the year award and first in the Audi financial services award.

Dealer-principal Alan Ren said it was a proud moment for the business.

“A heartfelt thank you to Audi headquarters for the invitation and to our supportive community in Cairns,” he said.

“This achievement wouldn’t be possible without our loyal customers for their kind referrals, and dependable suppliers for their unwavering help. And not to mention, we extend our gratitude to our dedicated employees and their families.” 

Mr Ren said three years ago he left the corporate world with his soulmate Connie Kang to chase “my dream of owning a dealership and took over Audi Centre Cairns”.

“There were many moments of self-doubt but it took three years of perseverance, of belief and of unbelievable support from our staff and customers,” he said. “We are not perfect but I am extremely proud of the exceptional team of people I work with every day.

“Well done team and a big thank you to all our customers in Cairns for your ongoing support.”

Audi Australia director Jeff Mannering said amidst the challenges posed by the automotive industry in 2023, including supply chain disruptions and logistical hurdles, Audi Australia commended its dealer partners for their resilience and unwavering commitment to excellence. 

“The 2023 Audi dealer of the year awards serve as a platform to applaud the outstanding performances of the Australian dealer network, highlighting their dedication to delivering unparalleled service and customer experience,” he said.

“Audi dealer of the year is a prestigious award presented to the best of the best who set the benchmark in sales and aftersales. The winners delivered a true premium experience to our customers in their journey with our brand.

“Regardless of all the turbulent circumstances last year, maintaining performance is always a collective responsibility, and indeed, we delivered. There is one defining reason behind our success: the unwavering commitment to the Audi brand by our dealer network.

“No matter what challenges we faced last year, I extend my thanks to all of our partners for their resilience and their willingness to perform in a tough environment. I want to thank all of our dealers for their passion for the Audi brand.”
