Oleg Markov, Director of sales and marketing of GAZ Group LCV Division:
- Over the last few years, our main task is to launch to market, to support sales and to improve service of the new Next generation models which successfully compete with the products of the global leaders in the automobile industry. The other important tasks are to increase profitability and to ensure financial sustainability of dealers in conditions of significant fluctuations in demand. Even in this period of declining demand, we opened new centers in the regions with high potential, invested in the development of sales and service. One more victory of GAZ brand in the DSI ranking shows that we have succeeded in creating true partner relationships with the enterprises of the distribution network based on the principles of trust, openness and mutual benefit.
