MG Philippines, which is operated by The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI), received the Five Star Distributor award—the highest recognition among all international MG distributors—at the recent 2020 MG Overseas Dealers and Distributors Conference held online on July 27, 2020.
MG Philippines was selected for this distinction from a list of over fifty (50) overseas MG distributors, based on comprehensive criteria such as sales performance, marketing, aftersales services, and dealership network. TCCCI joins an exclusive set of Five Star Distributor awardees in 2020 including the Taajeer Group MG Saudi Arabia, South Pacific Motor Chile SPA, Brisbane MG, and Mansour MG Automotive.
This award also marks a special milestone, as TCCCI is identified as the first overseas MG distributor to achieve Five Star status on its first full year of operations.
“It is our honor at The Covenant Car Company, Inc. to receive the Five Star Distributor recognition from our international principals at MG. We are privileged and proud to represent the MG brand in the Philippines, and to be recognized on our first year of full operations fuels our drive at TCCCI to go further in elevating the MG brand in the country,” says Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, President and CEO of TCCCI, MG Philippines.
“This award is a recognition of the collective work of all who have dedicated themselves to the introduction and expansion of MG in the Philippines: our shareholders, our esteemed board, stewards, dealer partners, bank partners, our colleagues in the media, and our valued MG clients. As we are thankful, we acknowledge that this is truly a testament of the Lord’s covenant to our company.”
“This recognition will push us at TCCCI to strive to continuously improve as we evolve and make ourselves better in providing the Filipino motoring public with modern, attainable mobility solutions, and innovative aftersales services.”
One local MG dealership—MG Iloilo—also took home a Four Star award in the dealerships category.
