EliteTech_Banner_PenskeSocial

The annual Penske Elite Technician Program, introduced in 2016, recognizes and rewards Penske Automotive Group’s top performing technicians for their outstanding credentials, skills and contributions. To be eligible, technicians must be nominated by management and meet specific program criteria including the highest level of training and brand certification, exceptional production and proficiency metrics, outstanding and verifiable credentials, and other important qualities. 129 Penske technicians including 9 finalists, were designated as Elite Technicians for the 2018 program.

After meeting program requirements and advancing through a challenging technical exam, nine technicians qualified to compete for top honors at the 2018 Penske Elite Tech Challenge in Mooresville, N.C., March 26-28.

During their stay in Mooresville, the nine finalists enjoyed several fun activities and competitions including a tour of the Universal Technical Institute NASCAR training center; a pit stop competition at the Team Penske race shop with members of the Team Penske pit crew; a GoKart racing competition at a local track; and a tour of the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C.

Pictured is the 2018 Penske Automotive Elite Technician of the Year, Jared Taylor from Peter Pan BMW.

As part of the Elite Tech Challenge, the nine finalists completed a final timed exam during their visit to the UTI training center. The following evening, at an awards banquet, Penske Automotive Group honored the technicians and celebrated the “2018 Penske Automotive Elite Technician of the Year,” Jared Taylor from Peter Pan BMW, who was the top scorer on the exam. Along with top honors, Jared was awarded a premium prize package that included two passes for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with Team Penske as their guests at a 2018 racing event – an experience that never disappoints.
