In recognition of its exceptional customer relations and customer relationship management, Ventura UK has received the ‘Best Marketing & CRM Performance’ award from Pershing. The award was made at Pershing’s recent dealer conference in Cattolica, Italy, which was attended by principals and representatives from 60 Pershing dealerships around the world.
The award was won in competition with all of Pershing’s dealers worldwide, and was presented to Michael Newton-Woof, General Manger of Ventura UK, by Giancarlo Galeone, CEO of the Ferretti Group, which owns Pershing along with Ferretti Yachts, Riva, Mochi Craft, Itama, Bertram, Custom Line and CRN.
On receiving the award, Michael Newton-Woof paid tribute to the team at Ventura: “This was an unexpected surprise, but much appreciated by all of us here at Ventura UK” he said. “Customer service is indeed something we place a great deal of emphasis on, and the team have done exceptionally well in that regard in the past year. I’m very pleased that their efforts have been recognised in this way by Pershing”.
This year’s dealer conference ran consecutively with a VIP client event attended by specially invited Pershing owner’s and prospective owners from Europe and beyond.
Seven models from the current Pershing fleet, were lined up for inspection on the pontoons in Cattolica. Highlight of the 2-day event, which took place on 7-8 May, was the world debut of the phenomenal Pershing 108 motor yacht, the latest addition to the Pershing stable. This stunning, 42-knot Pershing 108 superyacht is among the most eagerly anticipated that Pershing has ever produced. Her triple-engined surface drive configuration makes her not only very fast, but also unusually versatile, giving her a top speed close to 50mph as well as the ability to make passage at 10 knots under a single engine, at very low noise levels, with a range of up to 1000nm.
