On Saturday 23rd August 2014, Rare Spares held its Annual General Meeting(AGM), which is attended by Rare Spares Distributors from both Australia and New Zealand.
As part of the AGM, Rare Spares recognises the efforts of their network with the awarding of the Distributor of the Year (DOTY). This is presented to a deserving Rare Spares Distributor and recognises dedication, support, improvement and the desire to strive for excellence.
The winner of the 13/14 DOTY was awarded to Rare Spares Brisbane South and the award was presented to Store Owner Bruce Waldie. The store was honoured with a framed plaque and as a reward the Brisbane South store will be featured in a national full page advertisement in Street Machine magazine.
“We are very proud to receive the Rare Spares Distributor of the Year. It’s absolutely fantastic and recognises the hard work we have put in” said Waldie.
“We have been close before, winning the runner up prize on a previous occasion but it’s great to finally get the award this year.”
“It was a close call this year to determine the winner, but Rare Spares Brisbane South ticked all the boxes and exemplified dedication and improvement and they are always striving for excellence” said Melissa McVeigh, Marketing Manager/Director of Rare Spares.
Rare Spares Gold Coast received the runner up award at the AGM however store Co-Director Reg Vine was unfortunately unable to attend the event, with the award being accepted by Bruce Waldie on behalf of Reg Vine.
“We were blown away with receiving the runner up prize and we certainly weren’t expecting it” said Vine.
Rare Spares actively works with Distributors to ensure they have the support they need to run a successful business.
“Rare Spares feels more like a family than a company and I like to think we all look after each other. They are very supportive and are always just a phone call away” said Vine.
Rare Spares are proud of their Distributor network and want to congratulate Rare Spares Brisbane South and Rare Spares Gold Coast for their outstanding performances over the past year.
