JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nextran Truck Centers, a leader in state-of-the-art commercial truck sales and service centers in the Southeast, has received three prestigious awards based on its performance on behalf of the Mack Trucks' brand in 2016.
"We are honored to be recognized by Mack Trucks again this year as a national leader," said Jon Pritchett, President and CEO, Nextran. "It's a testament to the hard work and perseverance of our team of employees throughout the Southeast region and our great working relationship with Mack Trucks."
The three Nextran awards are: Mack Trucks Southeast Rental and Leasing Dealer of the Year; Mack Financial Services (MFS) United States Dealer of the Year; and Mack Trucks United States Rental and Leasing Dealer of the Year. Consideration for the MFS Dealer of the Year Award is based on several different factors, including retail finance volume funded as well as a metric called retail penetration, measured as new Macks financed vs delivered. Nextran was the top finance volume producing dealer in the U.S. for Mack Financial Services in 2016, funding more than $63 million for Nextran's retail customers, as well as its leasing affiliate, Nextran Truck Rental and Leasing.
"Nextran continues to pursue those initiatives that drive success for the Mack Brand and, most importantly, our mutual customers," said Jonathan Randall, Senior Vice President of North American Sales. "We congratulate them on their well-earned recognition toward that effort and are proud to have them as a partner."
