When I was a little girl, Labor Day meant 3 things: the end of summer break, the Labor Day Festival in my hometown, and one last trip to the beach for the year with my family. As I grew older, it was a long weekend marked with cookouts and the first Monday of September closing the shop. Until today…
2019 actually marks the 125th anniversary of Labor Day being celebrated as a national holiday and was signed into law by President Grover Cleveland. This holiday is meant to be a public exhibition of the strength and spirit of the trade and labor organizations along with festivals for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. As we are quickly approaching Labor Day weekend, I wanted to take a moment and pay a special tribute to my very own team. These are the guys that make it all happen.
Keven, my Service Director, was a client for 6 years before joining our team. This November will be his 8th year! While he may be the pretty face of the company, he genuinely cares about making sure our clients are taken care of. If you ask him what his job is, he will tell you he is a Customer Service Representative and that his mission is all about taking care of people. I really could not have said it better myself. I hope you enjoy some excellent grilling time this weekend #1! Thank you for being a wonderful Customer Service Representative and partner to work with every day.
Butch is my Senior Technician. I remember him being on our team throughout the years back to my elementary school days. This man can fix diesel and gasoline vehicles, is a fantastic diagnostician, and is as he calls himself “a company man.” When it comes to my team, he is one loyal son of a gun. Thank you for everything you do for our team and our company. I wish you a wonderful weekend and a relaxing time off. If you get a chance to get out on the boat, I hope the fishing is good!
Meet the newest member of our family, Paul. This guy has really stirred things up in a great way. He loves what he does–fixing cars. He pushes me outside of my comfort zone as a leader and manager to take bold steps and make changes to grow our shop which is exactly what I brought him on to do. He is great with our clients and is great at bringing fresh solutions and ideas to make the service we provide that much better. As a true adventurer at heart, may this Labor Day weekend bring you tons of thrill and family time!
I would love to show you Shawn. He is a pretty great guy–if you cannot tell, that is the theme here. He prides himself on being meticulous and detailed. Also a diesel and gasoline technician, he has a wealth of automotive and truck knowledge. One of the highlights of my day is to share new funny memes with Shawn. Since Keven has already claimed pretty face of the company, Shawn did not wish to share a photo and challenge the spot…Please actually take some down time this weekend Shawn. You have earned it!
And that, my Automotive Family, is a wrap! My fantastic team and I wish you a safe and joyous Labor Day weekend. As it was intended, may it be full of recreation, festivities, and time spent with family. We will return to the amazing vehicle service on Tuesday!
