On May 14, Rolls-Royce Beverly Hills, a division of O’Gara Coach Company, was honored as Rolls-Royce North America’s 2020 Global Provenance Dealer of the Year as the number-one dealer for “previously owned” Rolls-Royce motorcars. In order to achieve the award, the dealership had to meet exacting standards for “provenance, sales, service and client relations.” In defining “provenance,” the luxury manufacturer pointed to the words of its famous founder, Sir Henry Royce “The quality remains when the price is long forgotten.” The company utilizes the word “provenance” to denote its “pre-owned” vehicles.
On hand to accept the award, Tom O’Gara, CEO of the company founded in 1976 said, “Despite the hurdles presented to us by 2020, I am proud that my Rolls-Royce team has earned this award. Taking care of some of the most demanding and discerning clients in the world wasn’t easy managing a virtual relationship, but my team adapted new skills and processes to ensure acquiring a previously owned Rolls-Royce was just as much a luxury experience as acquiring and owning a new one.”
In town to present the award was Martin Fritsches, President and CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North America, who added, “With more than a century of history for the brand, and with more than three of every four Rolls-Royce cars ever built still being on the road provenance is critical to the brand. The Beverly Hills team understands that finding that second home for a Rolls-Royce commission is important to maintaining and growing the brand. We started 2021 with the strongest quarter of new commission deliveries, we have also seen the highest level of Provenance deliveries during the same period.”
