Cork SME Company of the Year 2014
Johnson & Perrott is delighted to have been awarded the honour of Cork Company of the Year 2014 – SME Category.The judges commended the commitment of the company to customer service, the professionalism of the team and the manner in which Johnson & Perrott had changed over the last two years. In his speech on the night of the awards, Group Chief Executive Mark Whitaker commented:
“On behalf of the fantastic team at Johnson & Perrott I am truly honoured to accept this award from the Chamber and from the businesses of Cork.
In 2011, we realised that we needed to change fundamentally to remain strong, to remain relevant and protect the employment of our staff. And so began a journey of change, of transformation which at times was very difficult but which has now delivered an organisation that is fit and ready to take up the opportunities that an improving economy will offer.
Can I thank all of my colleagues, our Board, our Senior Managers and all of our staff for their extraordinary commitment during what has been a challenging but rewarding period in our companies history; can I thank our franchise and banking partners who have renewed their faith in us as an organisation and can all of our customers and many of you are present, who have helped us to achieve an 89% increase in new car sales so far this year.
So as we enter into our 204th year, Johnson & Perrott is very proud to be an Irish Company, very proud to be a family company but most of all very proud to be a Cork Company. We believe in this Region - we invested in the wonderful development at Opera Lane, in our dealerships throughout the city and tonight I am delighted to announce that we are launching an asset finance business which will provide up to €5 Million of badly needed capital to Corks SME's.
So once again thank you to the Chamber for bestowing this wonderful honour on our organisation.”
