Canadian, U.S. dealers honored at International Snowmobile Congress
One Canadian Ski-Doo dealer and one American Ski-Doo Dealer were each named Dealer of the Year at the annual International Snowmobile Congress held in Sturbridge, Mass. this year.
Donahue Super Sports of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. won the American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA) Dealer of the Year award and City Argo Motorsports in Miramichi, NB was named the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO) Dealer of the Year.
“On behalf of BRP Ski-Doo, I want to take this opportunity to thank ACSA for recognizing one of the most dedicated and passionate dealers in our network, and to congratulate Bobby and his team for this outstanding recognition” says Robert Lumley vice president Sales and Marketing Ski-Doo and Sea-Doo Division. “Donahue Super Sports represents everything that we love about this industry. They are a family business, deeply involved in the industry, passionate about what they do, dedicated to their customers, and professional in every sense of the word.”
Bob and Alice Donahue started Donahue Super Sports over 46 years ago with the philosophy of taking care of every customer, and ensuring that snowmobile club support, participation and growth was a priority.
“Terry, Troy, and I are proud to be able to continue with those long standing values, that my dad and mom have started so many years ago” says Bobby Donahue, owner and general manager of Donahue Super Sports “I firmly believe that the sport of snowmobiling would never have grown to what it is today, without the connection between clubs and supporting dealers.”
“This is a great achievement to be recognized by CSSO and we are extremely proud of City Argo Motorsports” says Manon Pelletier regional sales director, Ski-Doo and Sea-Doo for Canada. “We know that they have invested a lot of effort and energy in the last few years to increase the level of service provided by the dealership and to make their business more efficient. We have seen their name positively mentioned in chat rooms and on blogs by consumers. This award is well deserved and we are extremely happy to have them as part of the big BRP family. Thanks to Mark, Kim and their team for supporting the Ski-Doo brand in such a positive manner.”
Mark and Kim MacDonald started with BRP in 2001 and have built their reputation on customer service.
“It was a shock to us as a small dealer with only four employees, but what an honour” says Kim MacDonald.
