“Pep Boys’ promise to our customers is ‘We go further to help you go farther,’ and our Top Techs are the ones who truly deliver on this promise day in and day out,” said Brian Kaner, CEO, Pep Boys. “As we celebrate our centennial this year, we’re especially proud of our Top Techs for demonstrating the same values on which our business was founded 100 years ago.”
The 2021 Top Tech award winners are Loy Chour, Anaheim, California; John Morin, St. Augustine, Florida.; Dan Stone, Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania; David Wade, Lone Tree, Colorado.; and Jose Massanet, Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico.

Automotive Service Professionals Month has been designated by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), an independent non-profit organization that has worked to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals, to recognize vehicle service professionals who are proficient, credentialed and committed to excellence.
