The judging panel has scrutinised all the entries from franchised dealers, independents, carmakers and motor retail suppliers for the 2024 AM Awards and we’re now delighted to reveal the first shortlist of finalists.

Days of examining entry submissions, plus reports from AM Awards auditors UHY Hacker Young, were followed by a day of robust debate and voting under the watchful eye of independent chairman Christopher Macgowan OBE

“All the shortlisted entrants deserve recognition for their achievements. The judges have been impressed to see so many great endeavours, new initiatives and strong performances from the firms selected to be finalists,” said AM editor Tim Rose.
