On Wednesday 16 May, BMW UK Ltd held its annual Aftersales Conference and Gala Awards evening at the ACC Arena in Liverpool with more than 320 guests in attendance.

During the evening, BMW announced the winners of their BMW Approved Bodyshop of the Year competition and BMW Approved Bodyshop Manager of the Year of which the winners were:

–    Sytner Oldbury, BMW Approved Bodyshop of the Year 2015
–    Lee Bartrop, Halliwell Jones, Wilmslow the BMW Approved Bodyshop Manager of the Year 2015.

BMW Approved Bodyshops were initially asked to send through a detailed application on their business based around five specific core measures.  Applications were judged by independent Bodyshop Industry experts with the final six applicants being asked to attend a further face to face interview in which the independent judges then challenged their application and asked detailed questions about their business.

The BMW Approved Bodyshop Manager of the Year award was taken from Head of Business nominations from each retail centre and finalists were then measured on a number of KPIs and SLA’s.
