As Ducati continues to grow in influence and importance within the global motorcycle industry, North America remains an integral market for the Italian brand. This international significance of North America was recently reflected during a private award ceremony at the Ducati Global Dealer Conference, which took place along the shores of the Adriatic Sea in Rimini, Italy.
Accolades were given in areas of Top Sales Volume and Top Growth for various regions, as well as overall Top Sales Volume awards for the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Among the regional and national categories, Ducati also notably honored Jeff Nash, President of Advanced Motorsports (AMS) Ducati Dallas, with a special award for his dealership’s dedication and performance as Ducati Dealer Of The Year 2019 for North & South America.
The award was personally presented to Nash by Ducati’s global Chief Executive Officer, Claudio Domenicali, who was in attendance alongside Ducati North America’s Chief Executive, Jason Chinnock.
“We are incredibly honored and excited to receive this award,” said Jeff Nash, Founder of AMS Ducati Dallas. “Since 1995, our team has been a leader in Ducati sales and service in the United States and we have always strived to provide our customers with the best experience possible when visiting our dealership. From sales to service our team is made up of passionate, knowledgeable Ducatisti and we hope that our customers see and feel this in their experiences with us. We are grateful for our customers and friends who reach out to us both local and abroad as we would not be able to achieve this honor without them."
“Our dealer network is the cornerstone of our success,” said Chinnock. “Ducati’s reputation for exceptional customer service is something we must value, preserve, and strengthen – and our dealerships do. Everyday. From Mexico City to our new flagship location in Montréal, all the way to our exclusive new showrooms like those in Newport Beach, California and Richmond, British Columbia, we are one team. To have the opportunity to gather everyone together in our home country of Italy and celebrate our achievements is something special. It’s what being part of the Ducati family is all about.”
The Ducati Global Dealer Conference in Italy was timed to coincide with the Ducati World Premiere program, which took place on October 23 at the Palacongressi di Rimini, and included the premiere of such highly anticipated motorcycles as the Streetfighter V4, the Panigale V2, and the new Panigale V4 superbike.
