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.
