Bob Greenwood, president and CEO of Automotive Aftermarket E-Learning Centre Ltd., has announced that Extra-Tech Automotive Ltd. of Calgary, Alberta, has won the prestigious BEST of the BEST Award for 2012. The AAEC head office is located in Abbotsford BC and the AAEC development and web management team is located in Ottawa, Ontario.
The annual BEST of the BEST award is won by the shop that has improved their business the most in one year compared to their previous year among all the AAEC BEST clients across Canada. There are 14 key business measurements that are analyzed equally among all AAEC BEST clients.
The Award was presented to Gianni and Doris Barbieri, the owners of Extra-Tech Automotive Ltd., and the entire Extra-Tech staff with a surprise visit by the AAEC executive team in May.
“The Extra-Tech automotive team would like to thank the AAEC team and the focus group members who, without their support and continued management training, our achievement could not be possible. With the continued ‘visual’ and ‘real time’ support of Bob Greenwood, Rui Martins, Rob Ward and the rest of the AAEC team and their industry leading technology and information, we have been able to learn and implement the procedures that Extra-Tech Automotive needed to move forward in this complicated aftermarket automotive service industry,” said Gianni Barberi.
“We are extremely proud of this award. It has taken a lot of hard work and perseverance by the Extra-Tech team to get to this point and to continually see the bright future of this industry. We are looking forward to continuing with the AAEC team to help us reach our future goals,” added Barberi.
“The outstanding effort that the entire Extra-Tech team made during 2012 certainly changed the culture and profitability of this operation to what is required for aftermarket business success today. Their professionalism, total accountability to each other and their clientele, coupled with the perseverance to see the changes come to fruition was incredible to witness. We are very proud to have Extra-Tech Automotive Ltd. as a client of AAEC and know that the careers for their staff and management will be outstanding in the coming years as they continue to move their business forward,” said Greenwood.
