RVBusiness magazine recently named local RV dealership, Greeneway RV located at 8220 Hwy. 13 S. Wisconsin Rapids, as one of its 2015 Top 50 RV Dealers in North America.
Mick Ferkey, owner of Greeneway RV, felt honored to be among this elite group, especially knowing the caliber of RV dealers he comes in contact with every day. He attributed the award to his employees who truly care about both their jobs and the customers they serve.
RVBusiness asked recreation vehicle manufacturers to nominate dealers across the United States and Canada who exemplify best practices and excellence in their field. Nominees were invited to fill out comprehensive applications describing business aspects such as customer service and satisfaction, employee training and education, financial planning and property management. An independent panel of veteran industry experts convened for judging the applications at the RV/Motorhome Hall of Fame & Museum in Elkhart, Ind., the unofficial RV Capital of the World, to select the RVB Top 50.
“The applications we received this year were, by and large, the most thought-out and thorough that we’ve seen in the five years we’ve done this. And that’s a direct reflection of the quality of the applicants themselves,” said Sherman Goldenberg, publisher of RVBusiness magazine and founder of the Top 50 program.
“More and more top-notch RV dealers have really set their sights on getting this award and are working harder to earn it. This year’s competition was the toughest it’s ever been. Our 2015 winners should be especially proud of their achievement, and we sure are proud to have them.”
In addition, the judges designated five exceptional dealers of the 50 as Blue Ribbon awardees: Greeneway RV Sales & Service, Guaranty RV Super Centers, of Junction City, Ore.; Tennessee RV Supercenter of Knoxville, Tenn., Veurinks’ RV Center, of Grand Rapids, Mich., and Canadian dealership Woody’s RV World of Calgary, Alberta.
The RVBusiness Top 50 dealers were honored at a November 4 awards reception in front of an all-industry audience of about 400 during the 2015 RV Dealers Association International Convention/Expo at Bally’s Las Vegas, presented in cooperation with the RVDA of both the United States and Canada.
Mick expressed his appreciation to the RVDA who puts on the expo and works tirelessly to support RV dealers in their business endeavors. The workshops, information and encouragement the organization provides is vital to each dealer that participates.
