On 8 September 2017, Toyota National Competition of Professional Excellence took place in Kyiv. The best sales assistants and mechanics from Toyota dealerships throughout Ukraine visited the annual competition. The contest was organized by Toyota-Ukraine with the partner assistance of Credit Agricole Bank, AXA Insurance and WUERTH Ukraine.
"Collectively, we can achieve more". It is not just a concept of the competition, but, in our view, the best approach in any partnership relations and cooperation. Synergy is in the basis of the global strategy of Credit Agricole Bank. We have been cooperating with Toyota for 14 years already. Those were the years of successful and mutually beneficial partnership, cooperation and developing the highest quality standards at all the stages: from a dealership to the bank and car service center. Almost 10 000 customers have chosen Toyota automobile brand and Credit Agricole Bank. The Competition of Professional Excellence is a real embodiment of Toyota values. We are proud of having a chance to share the emotions from this event, to feel competitive spirit and drive from desire to show one’s best.» - Roman Bunich, the Head of Long & Alternative Channels Development Department of Credit Agricole Bank, commented.
In 2008, Credit Agricole was the first bank in the Ukrainian market to launch partnership programs with automobile manufacturers. During this period, the Bank has established partnership relations with the leading automobile importers, such as BMW, Infinity, Lexus, Toyota, Nissan, Peugeot, Citroen, Renault, Mazda and Suzuki. Overall, the Bank’s partnership network comprises more than 400 auto dealers and 16 auto brands. Moreover, the auto lending process complies with the requirements of International Standard of the Quality Management System ISO 9001:2015, which guarantees transparency of the Bank’s services and excludes possibility of unpleasant surprises. Due to fruitful cooperation with the partners and permanent work on creating the best auto lending conditions, the share of Credit Agricole Bank in the whole segment is the biggest in Ukraine: 50% of PI auto loans are granted by Credit Agricole.
