Brian Stevens, an ASE-certified truck technician, recently was honored with a national achievement award as the Freightliner/Western Star/ASE Master M/H Truck Technician of the Year. Stevens, of Gretna, Neb., is the shop foreman at Truck Center Companies in Omaha. He has been a technician for 18 years.

The ASE annual awards spotlight top scorers on the ASE certification tests from among the more than a quarter of a million ASE certified professionals nationwide. In addition to looking for top scores when selecting honorees, award sponsors examine on-the-job excellence and community service, among other factors.

ā€œBrian is one of the outstanding ASE certified professionals recognized annually by different segments of the automotive service and repair industry,ā€ says Timothy Zilke, ASE president and CEO. ā€œEach of these elite technicians is presented with an industry-specific award recognizing their achievement.ā€

Forty-seven automotive professionals were honored Nov. 15, 2017, at the Fall Board of Governors meeting of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence held in San Diego.

ā€œASE has been honoring outstanding automotive professionals in our industry for more than 40 years,ā€ Zilke says. Thirty-six companies from OEM and aftermarket segments sponsored the individual technician recognition awards in the auto, truck, collision and parts categories, along with awards for instructors.
