Scot Manna, owner of MB Automotive Inc. in Des Plaines, Ill., won the ACDelco Technician of the Millennium IV competition at the ACDelco National Convention in Las Vegas in October. Manna, the U.S. North Central Region champion, prevailed over seven other U.S. and Canadian automotive technicians who qualified for the finals by winning their regional competitions.
The eight finalists — whose Independent Service Centers (ISCs) participate in ACDelco’s Total Service Support (TSS) program — competed in a timed, hands-on skills contest and were judged on their professionalism, speed and accuracy in the diagnosis and repair of a “bugged” 2007 Chevy Impala.
Manna, in addition to earning the title of Technician of the Millennium IV, won the Grand Prize worth more than US$41,000. The prize package included a 2007 GM vehicle of his choice, an interior/exterior image enhancement for his shop, two trips for two to the Bahamas, and a commemorative trophy.
Eric Armstrong, a technician at Motoring Services in Kennewick, Wash., and the U.S. Western Region winner, was runner up in the Technician of the Millennium IV finals, while U.S. South Central Region champion Bill James, owner of Bill’s Quality Automotive in Tulsa, Okla., finished third.
