HR Owen’s Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London dealership has been named as the brand’s Global Dealer of the Year as part of its annual awards.
Two businesses actually won the top prize, with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Philadelphia also claiming a joint-first position with HR Owen’s London location.
The showrooms in London and Philadelphia competed with over 130 different locations across 50 countries.
The global awards recognise and celebrate individual dealer partners’ “outstanding contribution to the marque’s worldwide success in 2022”.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London can trace its history back to HR Owen’s original Rolls-Royce dealership, which was established in 1932. However, HR Owen opened a new facility in Mayfair in 2021.
Located in a dual-aspect space on Stratton Street and Berkeley Street, the AM100 car retailer’s London facility features some show-stopping design features including a front door modelled on Rolls-Royce’s famous Pantheon grille and video projections to create the illusion of ongoing activity inside after hours.
Among the highlights of the HR Owen Rolls Royce London showroom is a ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’, displaying intriguing objects and pieces designed to spark ideas and conversations as part of the commissioning process.
Discussions can also take place in the ‘Speakeasy’ bar to the rear of the store or in the Brand Director’s office, which includes a cutting-edge configurator for finalising specifications.
Henrik Wilhelmsmeyer, Rolls‑Royce Motor Cars director of sales and brand, presented the awards in a series of virtual and in-person events.
Wilhelmsmeyer said: “Our dealer partners are an integral part of our worldwide Rolls-Royce family: it is impossible to overstate the crucial role that they play in our global success.
“Their local knowledge and insights, professional expertise and hyper-personalised client engagement is central to the experience we offer our clients as a true House of Luxury.
“It is with enormous pleasure that I present these awards, which recognise and celebrate our dealer partners’ outstanding achievements and invaluable contribution in 2022. My sincere thanks and congratulations to all the winners whose unstinting commitment inspires greatness in us all.”
