Toasting the successes of 2009

MARYBOROUGH Service Centre has three good reasons to toast 2009 – an apprentice won a state award, the company won a national award and it also welcomed a new service adviser into the “family”.

Co-owner Daryn Brims said he and wife Petrina were thrilled with the company’s success and praised all of their staff, with special mentions for apprentice Andrew Shipp and service adviser Greg Rashleigh.

Andrew was recently named third-year Apprentice of the Month by the Motor Trading Association Institute of Technology.

“He was chosen out of 1000 apprentices statewide,” Daryn said.

“It’s a privilege to have an apprentice of Andrew’s calibre.

“He joined the business in March and is growing into a fine technician.

“He’s taken every opportunity life has given him and made the most of it.”

The award wins him a spot in the Apprentice of the Year awards.

Daryn also said the company was privileged to have Greg, who has 24 years industry experience on board.

“Greg has a vast range of experience as a technician and in customer service,” Daryn said.

The Sydney-born service adviser is a technician by trade but now specialises in customer service.

He moved to the Fraser Coast from Toowoomba about 18 years ago and is a big fan of “fishing and family”.

Capping off the year for Maryborough Service Centre is the framed certificate on the wall, issued in September, that confirms without doubt the company is the Repco Authorised Service National Dealer of the Year.
