Each year, RepairPal chooses one of our talented automobile technicians to receive the RepairPal ASE Master Automobile Technician of the Year distinction.
This year, we are pleased to recognize Gary Sharits as the 2016 winner.
Gary Sharits is an important member of the RepairPal Certified Shop Network. He is employed by Christian Brothers Automotive, owned by Larry and Cindy Giannone, in Land O’ Lakes, Florida. We chose Gary as the winner because of his outstanding performance on ASE tests, in addition to other RepairPal criteria.
Winners of the RepairPal ASE Master Automobile Technician of the Year award must be employed by a RepairPal shop in good standing. They actively participate in professional development, have a stable career in the automobile field, and have established themselves as a leader in their chosen profession. Winners score high on ASE Master Certification and recertification, and are respected instructors who are willing to share their knowledge with others.
Christian Brothers Automotive lives up to the RepairPal Certified status regulations and offers experienced and trustworthy mechanics that use high-quality parts, offer top-notch work, and charge a fair price. RepairPal Certified shops must pass a rigorous application process administered by ASE Certified Technicians who have worked at and owned auto service companies.
Customers who understand the level of expertise and security offered by RepairPal Certified shops seek out these businesses for the best possible outcome when they need a repair or routine service for their vehicle.
Gary will be recognized at the 2016 ASE Technician Awards banquet held at the Embassy Suites-Concord in Concord, North Carolina on Wednesday, November 16. A Welcome Reception will be held on November 15. Gary’s airfare, hotel stay, and meals will be covered by RepairPal.
About 50 other technicians from all over the United States will also receive awards from various sponsor companies at the banquet. At the 2015 banquet, 46 technicians were honored. In addition to award winners and their guests, corporate award sponsors, the ASE Board of Governors, certain ASE staff members, and various industry guests will be in attendance.
