J McChesney & Sons crowned Opel Dealer of the year 2022

J McChesney & Sons, Main Opel Dealer, Clontibret, County Monaghan has won the coveted Opel Dealer of the Year 2022 award. Brian and Wendy McChesney, Dealer Principals, were presented with the accolade at the annual Opel Dealer Conference, held at The Heritage Killenard, County Laois, this week. Holding a strong 6.9% Opel combined passenger car and light commercial vehicle market share in Monaghan, the win comes as the company reaches a significant milestone in 2022, celebrating 75 years in business.

Appointed to the Opel Dealer Network in 1977, J McChesney & Son is a family-run business. Established by John McChesney in 1947, the enterprise grew to new heights in 1977, when his son Robert began selling Opel passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. Increasingly recognised in their locality for outstanding customer service, the company’s ethos of always putting the customer first has seen both their sales and aftersales business grow from strength to strength over the decades.


Brian McChesney, Dealer Principal, said at the Opel Dealer Conference, "We are simply delighted to be bringing the Opel Dealer of the Year award home to County Monaghan. It’s rewarding to know that our team’s continued efforts are recognised by the Distributor and we can’t accept the award without acknowledging our very valued customers. We thank them sincerely for all their support throughout the years and we very much look forward to seeing everyone in 2023 at J McChesney & Son.”


James Brooks, Managing Director at Opel Ireland said "With excellent customer satisfaction results, sales targets surpassed, a strong county market share performance, the new Opel corporate identity embraced, strong local marketing engagement and the highest service retention in the Opel Dealer Network, J McChesney & Son is a worthy winner of the Opel Dealer of the Year 2022 award. We work closely with our Dealer partners, hand in hand, and it is wonderful to see the McChesney family’s dedication and hard work continue to reap rewards.”
