Cool Checa's epic M sales-award trip to South Africa!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
With Ryan winning the award the past few years and being promoted to head sales manager it was time for Francesca aka Checa, Ryan's right hand for years, to step up and take over for Ryan. We all knew Ryan was the top dog so Checa had some huge shoes to fill and of course she did not disappoint!

In her rookie year this young lady took over the M sales by storm and was not only one of the top bmw sales reps in the country but she also took the M sales award keeping the tradition alive at Steve Thomas BMW

We all at Steve Thomas are very proud of you Checa congrats on the win! Also on behalf of Ryan, Checa, and the entire Steve THomas family we wanted to thank all you forum members on here for all the support you have given our family over the years. We owe a lot of our sucess to you folks and we are very grateful to you, so thank you

Now onto the good stuff. Checa was flown out to South Africa which was a crazy long flight. 11 hours from LA to London then another 12 hours from London to South Africa. talk about jet lag!!

The M team had a action packed few days set up for the winners. In attendance were all the M sales winner from around the world. The top of the top were all there. Anyone who was anyone in M sales punch their ticket for this prestiges event. I believe M only selects the top 4 from each country so you can see its pretty cool to be there

on the plate for the first day:
1. High speed track fun in M6's M5's M3's all of which to Checa surprise were right hand drive lol
2. Off road journey through the back country in x5's
3. Cocktail Party

on the plate for second day:
1. Safari excursion
2. private helicopter ride over South Africa
3. Awards dinner/banquet

Below are the professional pics taken from the event. I must say that the photographer did an AMAZING job on the coverage so to you my friend

enjoy the pics and once again Congrats Checa on winning the M sales award!!!

cheers
jimmy

Congrats to all.
On a side note, that Safari adventure is so unreal; watching those wild animals up so close is amazing.

Checa said you could reach out and touch the animals if you wanted! crazy I would have been a little freaked especially with the baby and mom elephant getting so close to the caravan!
