NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd Managing Director Marko Wowczyna, who presented the prizes, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic meant that we had to hold a belated presentation to the sales team, all of whom have performed impressively over the past two years in what have been very challenging trading conditions.

“It was fitting that Steve was named 2020 Salesman of the Year in his final year with the company, narrowly finishing ahead of Paul who took the 2019 accolade.”
