FIAT is proud to have been awarded the Best Integrated Marketing Approach - Manufacturer award at Auto Trader's 2016 Click Awards. Michelle Davis, FIAT UK Digital and CRM Director, stepped onto the stage at the Banking Hall in London, where the ceremony took place, to collect the award from Auto Trader Sales Director, Le Etta Pearce, and special guest, javelin world record holder and former Olympian Steve Backley OBE.

Auto Trader's Click Awards have established a reputation as the must-attend event in the digital automotive retailing calendar. Now in their ninth year, they celebrate excellence in digital car retailing and are awarded following close scrutiny of objective research by an independent panel of judges.

It really is an endorsement of the innovative work taking place throughout the business to excite new audiences and allow them to engage with the brand in a very unique way. Decisions are increasingly taken in the digital space and any integrated marketing campaign must align itself fully to key points in the consumer journey. This award is the result of months of highly collaborative teamwork and I am confident it will motivate the FIAT team to even greater heights."
