Group, gathered at Ultimate Truck Service in Ridgefield, WA to network, discuss
best practices, and enjoy three days of comradery.
event was hosted by shop owners, David and Debbie Jennerjohn, and moderated by Management Success! consultants, Jim
Smith and Desirae Smith.
1, group members toured Pacific Truck Centers, a local big truck dealership, as
well as Accurate Motorwerks, a local general repair shop owned by Automotive
TOP 20 Group member, Michael Gallagher.
Saturday and Sunday, the group spent time sharing advice, exchanging ideas, and
discussing problems and solutions related to the daily work of shop owners,
especially the unique situations facing truck shop owners.
Group meetings are a great way for shop owners to network and gain new knowledge
and skills to apply to their shops. Lynnetta Rogers from 2nd to None
Service commented, “I love the networking! We always come away with new ideas.”
Valenta from S&D Truck Service had this to say: “I found it interesting
that no matter where on the scale you are, all shops deal with similar issues.”
As for strategies addressing these issues, Nicole Ledford from Aaron’s Semi
Repair thought the “statistics analysis discussion was informative and very
helpful, and the profit and loss discussion assisted in knowing how to adjust
and make improvements in managing our money.”
group had some fun too, with dinner on Friday and Saturday evening and custom
coffee drinks from an in-house barista on Saturday morning.
