The KiwiSpan Licensee of the Year Award is awarded to a licensee who stands as a great embodiment of the KiwiSpan brand and celebrates a licensee’s all-round commitment to driving success in their business. This award was given out at the annual KiwiSpan conference, which was held in Queenstown this year from the 12th to the 14th of September.
Although it is tough to choose a winner every year, the 2023 Licensee of the Year is awarded to KiwiSpan Tauranga. The region was awarded runner-up last year and have continued to prove themselves as a leader in the KiwiSpan network again this year.
Tauranga owners Darryn and Jill Astill are an amazing addition to the network and offer great benefits and feedback to others within the KiwiSpan group. They are consistent in their marketing efforts and always remain enthusiastic, positive and proud of what they do. This year they have achieved amazing sales results, and we are proud to celebrate their success at this year’s awards.
Building on their big win this year, KiwiSpan Tauranga also take out the award for regional marketing excellence. They remain ahead of the game with their marketing efforts, from radio marketing, sponsorships to social media and promotions, and they have created a strong brand presence amongst their local community.
KiwiSpan Commercial Manager Troy Spence states “Tauranga has always remained at the top of their game and a leader within the KiwiSpan network, these awards are very well-deserved.”
The Tauranga team have commented on this year’s winnings saying “to be honest we feel every licensee in the network is worthy of this accolade. We are amongst an amazing network of incredibly talented people which we are proud to be a part of.”
“We are extremely honoured our team has achieved this award, our vision when we purchased the Tauranga region 2 years ago was to offer nothing but exceptional customer service, implement systems to increase efficiencies and productivity and deliver nothing but the best. Looks like we are doing just that!”
Owner Jill Astill speaks on how they plan to continue to deliver in the future “we are seeing a shift in customer enquiry to more bespoke projects incorporating habitable spaces and or fully habitable homes. We want to take sheds to a new level and be creators of bespoke builds and market trends while remaining consistent in our service and delivery of quality products to our core clients.”
