(SOUTH AFRICA) 20 JULY 2011. Kia Motors South Africa (KMSA) has grown by leaps and bounds since its arrival in South Africa in . Contributing factors such as the design innovation led by Chief Design Officer Peter Schreyer and the value for money proposition of the vehicles have caused many people to change their perceptions and position it as an aspirational and growing brand.
At a global level, Kia Motors Corporation sought to reward countries that have risen to the challenge of increasing the public profile of Kia vehicles at the 2011 annual Middle East and Africa Distributors Convention. Kia Motors South Africa was recognized for its sterling performance by being awarded two Distributor of Distinction awards in recognition of outstanding overall sales, marketing, skills -, and dealer development performance in the Middle East and Africa region.
KMSA CEO Ray Levin said: “These awards have been given based on our performance in 2010. As the world cup fever embraced South Africa, it also invaded Kia Motors South Africa. It is without doubt that this spurred us and our dealer network to achieve greater success”
With all the activity at KMSA and anticipated vehicle launches, Kia is certainly a brand to watch out for as they endeavour to maintain and increase their current celebrated performance.
