Congratulations to the team for their outstanding contribution to the Porsche Division. Porsche Centre Wilmslow were also awarded:
- Porsche Training Technician
- Porsche Silver Technician Accreditation Porsche Training Technician
The Porsche Training Technician Award gives recognition to only five individuals within the Porsche Network, one of those individuals this year being our own Colin Pearce.
Each Centre has a dedicated Training Technician and the award is for the top 5 who in the eyes of Porsche have shown the greatest ability to communicate, mentor and coach the rest of the technical team on vehicle updates, new processes and systems, working practices and also alert PCGB to potential problems.
Porsche Silver Technician Accreditation
Peter Lloyd was awarded his Silver Technician Accreditation Award at the Ceremony after a year of hard work, head scratching and endeavour.
This award was only achieved by 8 technicians in the Porsche Network and is not only a testament to Peter's commitment to improve himself; it is also recognition of his superb technical ability. He worked tirelessly to ensure he was in the best possible position for the intense 2 day accreditation exam. The Silver status is incredibly difficult to achieve, congratulations to Peter.
