National Capital Motors Awards Night @ Nishi Gallery

2 December 2015

There’s always a good buzz around the concrete bunker that became the Nishi Gallery. It’s now an integral part of the whole NewActon development that this year has had some great exhibitions, ‘after-parties’ business events and awards nights. Last year for National Capital Motors it was their choice of venue for the annual NCM Awards and so successful they came back this year, tweaked the formula to make the night just right for their staff to celebrate and be acknowledged for a tough but successful year.

There’s mutual respect that's very evident from the staff and the Brede team which for 30 plus years has been a leading light in the car business with founder Campbell Brede happily handing much of the work now to his two sons, Duncan and Dale. And the nicest part is that this company of car sellers is among the nicest, most down to earth and respectful bunch of employees in the business. It’s a multicultural team too with the work ethic and respect of all for each other a great leveller.

Ken Nichols as Group GM has brought his personality, communication talent and business acumen to this team and added Sarah Smith as his Operations Manager already knowing her skills - they have worked together previously - and she is a great asset.

But the party was to reward and award the winners from across the dealerships with two in Belconnen, one in Phillip and one in Goulburn – a mini bus bringing almost all the Goulburn staff to the party. There were three categories, commitment, achievement and respect with the bench set high, keen competition among staff and an in detail assessment of each recipient that was carefully considered.

The coveted award of Employee of the Year was won by Sid Mireskandari, with a glowing report on his work, an extraordinary total of sales and a winning personality, making his achievements an example to all.
It’s a great night, where there are no pretentions, plenty of mateship among the blokes and women who epitomise egalitarian attitudes. It starts at the top, and National Capital Motors knows the formula.
