“Our technician, Cory Dennis, got his start with us by washing vehicles back in 2015,” says Dave Jacobus, General Manager, CARSTAR Jacobus. “Losing his father when he was young did not stop Cory as he excelled throughout the years, proof being the growth in his role as he is now 24 and an A tech. Cory is like family to us and I believe in him and encourage him just like I would my own children. I could not ask for a better employee or friend and I am happy that he has won this award.” Congratulations Cory on this well deserved #EmployeeoftheMonth award!

"If you were to google search 'the ideal employee' Mr. Bowker's picture would always show up. This gentleman always goes above and beyond when it comes to helping to provide for the team and company. He's here every day and rarely takes time off. He is always the first in the door and always the last one here just to make sure the job is done. The positive attitude that he brings to the shop on a daily basis has single handily, at times, been the sole contributor for the good swings in morale with the other staff on the floor. Whenever I'm in need, Mr. Bowker is always there to lend his helping hand inside and outside of work. He is always leading the way to take the repairs to the next level of safety and proper repair methods. It's, I would say, embedded in his DNA to always do the right thing without expecting anything in return. Just recently he volunteered to help out Anthony Falasco and getting him ready for his I-CAR welding certification by teaching him how to weld and spending the whole day making sure he'd be ready for his certification. I can honestly say that out of my sixteen years of running shops Matthew has been the most outstanding employee I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I can never thank him enough for all the things he has done for this facility and me personally and I hope he knows that we do truly appreciate everything he does for us!" Congratulations Matthew Bowker on earning your #EmployeeoftheMonth award! ????????
