CAT Awards 2012: The winners

2012 CAT Award WinnersMore than 140 aftermarket heavyweights converged on Twickenham Rugby Stadium recently for the 2012 CAT Awards.

The great and the good applauded our eight award winners, including retail magnate Joe Elliot for his lifetime achievement award.

In a new departure for the awards, four guests were invited onto the stage to give their thoughts on the state of the aftermarket and its opportunities going forward.

Thanks to Peter Cox, Andy Savva Richard Shortis and Bill Stimson for taking part in the debate which touched on some interesting issues and hit a nerve or two.

Read more about that, and our winners in more detail, in the Awards issue of the CAT coming to you soon.
