We know Bermudian’s love carnival festivities, so we hosted our own version of Carnival at our showroom last Tuesday and invited customers to attend. We had delicious traditional Trinidadian food, steel pan music and ladies in Carnival costumes to create an authentic atmosphere. We thought it was also appropriate to have the President of Bermuda Hero’s Weekend, Jason ‘The General’ Sukdeo – to select the winning name. Thank you on behalf of Bermuda Motors to all who made the contest and the evening such a success.”

David Gibbons, Chairman of Bermuda Motors, stated, “With Kia being the number 1 vehicle on the roads here in Bermuda this training is essential. This manufacturer training is the first step in Bermuda Motors’ reinvestment into our workforce.

Thank you to General Manager, Kris King, and his team for their work on pulling this together.”
