Hyundai of New Port Richey's Patrick Meagher Wins Hyundai National Service Advisor Skills Competition, Advances to Global Championship
New Port Richey, FL-- Ten Hyundai service advisors from 10 different Hyundai dealerships across the nation put their automotive expertise and customer service skills to the test recently at Hyundai's biennial National Service Advisor Championship. Patrick Meagher, Service Advisor at of Hyundai of Wesley Chapel, was one of the two final winners of the competition, earning $500 and a trip to Korea to compete in the Global Championship.
"We are extremely pleased with Patrick's performance at the Championship and are proud to have him as part of our service team," said Scott Fink, president and CEO of Hyundai of Wesley Chapel.
The National Championship competitors were all winners of the Regional Skills Competitions held last year. The National Champion competition started with more than 50 service advisors from more than 820 Hyundai dealers nationwide. These 50 service advisors represent the best of the best and always go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure each customer leaves his or her dealership satisfied. Service advisors work with customers to handle simple maintenance services such as transmission flushes, oil changes and tire rotations, as well as difficult repair projects caused by accidents.
"The competition was fierce and there could only be one winner, but the skills practiced at this event are aimed at the heart of customer satisfaction," said Barry Ratzlaff, Executive Director, Customer Connect and Service Business Development, Hyundai Motor America. "The Service Advisor Championship ensures we are providing an outstanding customer experience and arming our service advisors with the tools and training they need to deliver on the promise of Hyundai Assurance Car Care."
Patrick will have the opportunity to compete again in October at the Global Championship where he will face service advisors from more than 45 different countries.
"We're excited about the upcoming Global Championship and know that Patrick will do very well," said Fink. "We'll be rooting for him!"
