Automotive Apprentice Achievement Well Deserved!!!

Sevag adds another Award to his collection after wining 2011 Snap On Apprentice of the Year Award. The award recognises automotive apprentices who have shown excellence in their chosen field.

Sevag had to endure 3 long months of anticipation reading stories about the other 6 finalist in Street Machine Magazine. “I’ve been very eager reading about the other finalists each month, they were very competitive candidates but thought I had a good shot at it; it was not going to be my results that let me down. But this isn’t a performance shop it’s a new car dealership, and I thought this might make a difference” said Sevag to Street Machine editors.

Lou Pedevski Workshop Manager was brought in on the secret he contacted Mark D’Aversa from WPC Group (Sevag’s Mentor) the night before and ask him to be part of the presentation. Lou made sure Sevag was out road testing a vehicle while his prize a custom painted Snap on tool chest worth $9000 was delivered. Sevags workmates gathered around the tool chest and waited for his arrival back to the workshop for an unexpected presentation. “Sevag to say the least was surprised when he realized it was not a workshop meeting taking place and spotted the giant tool chest and realized he had won the award. “My heart stopped when I realized what was going on and it was an unbelievable feeling” says Sevag.

WPC Group would like to congratulate Sevag on his major achievement and agrees that The right workplace Is important, support,  mentoring and passion plays a major part in Sevag being the employee he is today.
