Congratulations Chris Kennedy!

By Mister Transmission

Mister Transmission is excited to announce that Chris Kennedy, the owner of Mister Transmission in Moncton, New Brunswick has won the “Canadian Technician of the Year” award for 2014!

21 people were nominated for the annual award, which recognizes exemplary shop owners or technicians who have gone above and beyond either by mentoring young technicians, completing special training courses, being active in their community, going that extra mile for colleagues or offering unique diagnostic or troubleshooting skills. The judges consist of a panel of automotive repair shop owners and technicians from across the country. After two rounds of judging, the contest was down to three remarkable finalists, and Chris won the award.

Forging ahead on new pathways

Chris possesses the forward-thinking mindset that is deserving of such an award. When Chris encountered an obstacle with an intimidating technology, (the J2534 flash reprogramming), he dove head-first into all the training resources he could get his hands on. He is now an expert on J2534, and regularly trains mechanics all over North America on the importance of this technology in the automotive repair industry.

Not only is Chris committed to ongoing training himself, he ensures that his staff receives regular education in order to stay ahead of the curve. He believes that in order to achieve success in this business, and to truly help his staff and clients, one must truly strive for excellence. For Chris, training in new technologies is paramount to reaching that goal. In the words of one of the judges;

“His insatiable curiosity, foresight, and skills not only attracted Mister Transmission’s top brass, but his very impressive commitment to learning heavily influenced a national corporation to invest in new technology. That in itself is an impressive accomplishment.”

Chris’ efforts not only transformed his business, but also had a huge impact on the entire chain of Mister Transmission shops across the country. Chris won the award based on his ability to use automotive technology to expand his business and build trust with customers. We’re thrilled that one of our own has been recognized for his diligence, and we’re very thankful to Chris for all of his dedication.

My transmission failed on my Nissan Xterra Pro 4X last week. I called around and a lot of places would not even do the job, I was referred to this shop by a few friends. Spoke to Blair on the phone. Really great service, they did a great job in a very reasonable time frame and the price was fair also. Would come back again for sure

Mark from Mr.Transmission was absolutely awesome to deal with. After having transmission problems multiple times, he was able to fix everything 100% and with what was able to go through warranty, he did. My truck was not easy to deal with, so his patience level was amazing. I wouldn't go anywhere else for transmission problems in the future.

Wes and crew did a great job tracking down and repairing an unusual transmission leak for me. Obviously knowledgeable, they were also persistent, adaptable, and skilled. Rather than rack up a huge bill without keeping me in the loop, Wes made sure to keep me informed and gave me the choice of continuing with previously unplanned (and potentially expensive) repairs or calling it a day. He was also very keen to make sure I understood exactly what had gone wrong and what was needed to fix it, and the extra effort he took to demystify the problem and the solution was very much appreciated. I hope that I won’t need any more transmission repairs in the future, but if I do I would not hesitate even for a second to bring it directly to this crew. Top marks!

I thought my transmission was going.(it had been slipping) so I took it to Mr Transmission on Centennial spoke to Dan. I was in absolute hysterics! Dan calmed me down and told me not to worry he would take care of it. When he came back he told me all it needed transmission fluid. I can't tell you how much I appreciated the honesty and understanding. I'm sure I wasn't the first person nor the last to come in loosing their cool. I will recommend Mr Transmission to anyone . Thanks Dan.

Denise Ruck
I'm a single mom. My transmission blew before Christmas. The staff were empathetic. They understood how much stress this caused me. Customer service was outstanding. They were honest and extremely helpful. Payment plans were an option that helped a great deal. They called me with updates and were honest with their work and their pricing!!! No surprises. Thank you, Mr. Transmission. Great experience. D. Ruck
