Ron Kaban, Dealer Principal at Yorkton Hyundai was surprised that his business won Large Business of the Year.
“I didn’t think I was that large!” joked Kaban.
Kaban said that for him, it’s about his team, and he believes that they’re the difference that helped the dealership win the award.
“I’m thankful for my staff with their hard work and dedication. In a larger business like this, you have to have everybody working together, and that is one thing I have established here is a good team. Team-building is everything to me, and as long as I have a good team I will succeed.”
This has been a major year for the dealership, as it’s at the end of a major renovation. While challenging, Kaban said that it has been surprisingly painless as renovations go, and credits NL Construction with making it go smoothly.
“It turned out absolutely beautiful.”
Like all businesses, Yorkton Hyundai was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and had to go down to half-staff in March. But by April they were back to full staff, and Kaban said it didn’t really slow down much.
“I’m thankful that we are here.”
The Celebrate Success Awards, and Yorkton Chamber of Commerce, are important, said Kaban, because people and businesses in the city deserve recognition for their hard work.
“I think it’s giving recognition to people that are working hard. Working hard not only for their business, but for the community. It gives you more of a feeling of community involvement… We need the Chamber to succeed as a city.”
The award was presented Wednesday as the Yorkton Chamber presented its 14th Celebrate Success Business Awards.
