Kamloops, BC — Last week, Kamloops KIA received top honors and national recognition as the recipient of KIA Canada’s President’s Award for Top After Sales Dealership in 2021. Kamloops KIA General Manager Cory Dieno and his team were selected from 197 retailers across Canada. The KIA Presidents Award for Top After Sales recognizes achieving outstanding performance and customer satisfaction in after-sales and service.

KIA Canada’s Regional Manager Daryl Katchaluba presented the award to Dieno and 54 Kamloops KIA staff. Katchaluba commented that 2021 was Dieno’s first full year at the helm, having relocated from the Lower Mainland during the Pandemic.

“2021 was a year of rebirth for the Kamloops dealership that grew its roots in the Kamloops community,” said Katchaluba. “Located on the north shore, Kamloops KIA has taken special interest in the Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism and other organizations who may have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic.

“What I have built over the last year is a fabulous team of caring, hardworking professionals,” states Dieno. “From our detail and service departments to our online sales, in-store product advisors and finance team, we accept this award as a team. We are proud of the relationships we have built in the community with our customers and are very excited that Kamloops is hosting the 2023 Memorial Cup as we have a very special relationship with the Kamloops Blazers Hockey Club.”

Kamloops will be host to the 2023 Memorial Cup presented by KIA.
