On Saturday the 17th August, Rare Spares held their Annual General Meeting attended by Rare Spares Distributors from across Australia and New Zealand.

Every year for close to 30 years, Rare Spares have recognised the efforts of their distributor network by presenting a deserving distributor with the Distributor of the Year (DOTY) Award. The award recognises a Rare Spares distributor’s dedication, support, improvement and desire to strive for excellence.

The winner of the Rare Spares DOTY award is honoured with a framed plaque at the Annual General Meeting, and their store is featured in a national full page advertisement in Street Machine Magazine.

This year, for the first time ever, two distributors were honoured with the award, as both deserved equal recognition for their efforts.

Rare Spares Perth won this prestigious award for the second consecutive year; a testament to their hard work and commitment. The second award was presented to Rare Spares, Wodonga, who were overjoyed to be recognised for their contribution to the brand.

“It was a great feeling to win Distributor of the Year. This is the first year that we have won, and it’s great to have our hard work pay off. I think it is a great motivator for staff as well, to know that we can really excel in a number of areas,” said Glenn Coughlan, Rare Spares Wodonga.

Brent O’Dempsey who accepted the award on behalf of Rare Spares Perth, said “We’re very proud to have won the Distributor of the Year award for the second year in a row, and thank our staff for all their hard work and contributions.”

“We are happy to support Rare Spares and be part of an organisation that puts a lot of time and effort into their distributors. Winning this prestigious award for the second year in a row is an honour, and we hope to continue this winning streak with our performance over the next year.”

Rare Spares are grateful for their strong distributor network across Australia and New Zealand and congratulate Rare Spares Perth and Rare Spares Wodonga for their equally outstanding performance over the past year.
