The 2019 DOYA caps off a challenging but fruitful year for IPC’s dealer network’s sales force and aftersales operations. Held annually since 2004, the DOYA acknowledges the hard work and successful achievements of Isuzu front liners in IPC’s dealer principals and operators.
Achievement awards were handed out to branch, sales, service, and parts managers, sales supervisors, and sales executives in the black-tie dinner gala attended by IPC’s top executives and managers of the dealership network.
“Tonight, as we give due recognition to our best dealers and performers of 2019, I would like to encourage all of you to step up to our commitment to serve our valued customers,” said Hajime Koso, president, Isuzu Philippines Corporation.
“Let 2020 be the year wherein we see a turn-around in our aftersales service and excellence in vehicle sales as we gear towards a sustainable business and as we once again claim the No. 1 position for truck brand this year,” he added.
Isuzu Pasig was hailed as the 2019 Dealer of the Year with Isuzu Bulacan and Isuzu Sta. Rosa coming in 1st and 2nd runners up respectively. Meanwhile, Isuzu Makati was named as the Most Improved Dealership for the past year.

“This 2020, may we become more ambitious, and being ambitious means that you go out and do what you set out to do,” said IPC Executive Vice President Shojiro Sakoda in his closing remarks. “Part of that is committing to learning what you don’t know because limitations can be overcome, and you shouldn’t let your limitations stand in the way of achieving your goals.”
