Pep Boys is celebrating Automotive Service Professionals Week by announcing its Top Techs, the winners of its annual tech of the year award. The company recognizes automotive technicians annually in each of its business regions who demonstrate performance excellence, a commitment to continuous training and mentorship, exemplary customer service and an enthusiastic approach to their work.
This year, Pep Boys is celebrating five technicians who go further every day — for their customers, coworkers and communities: William Bowles, a master technician in Fort Worth, Texas; Ernesto Delaisla, a master technician in Clovis, California; Jason Kirby, an area diagnostic specialist in Orlando, Florida; Bryan Lamparter, a master technician in Charlotte, North Carolina; and Amir Pagán, a technician in Humacao, Puerto Rico.
“Our technicians are the lifeblood of our service business, and our Top Techs are the best of the best,” said Brian Kaner, CEO – Service. “They bring both the skills and the passion that help us live out our promise to go further so our customers can go farther.”
The Top Techs were selected based on multiple factors, including ASE certifications, strong productivity and performance metrics, mentorship, living the Pep Boys values and positive representation of the company. The respective stores of each ‘Top Tech’ will now have the distinction of being home to one of the country’s most outstanding technicians.
National Automotive Service Professionals Week is celebrated during the week of June 7, to remind us about the automotive technicians who keep the country’s vehicles on the road every day. The week will end with Automotive Service Professionals Day to say thank you to our nation’s techs. Throughout the week, Pep Boys will share stories about its Top Techs on www.PepBoys.com and its social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.
