Mitchell awards shop employee with Hawaii vacation

Jan. 18, 2012

Jan. 18, 2012—Mitchell International recently presented Gabrielle Kephart, collision repair consultant at Wicklunds CARSTAR and Glass in Liberty, Mo., with a $5,000 check that will be used for a trip to Maui, Hawaii.

Kephart is the winner of Mitchell's Get-a-Life Dream Vacation contest. Mitchell organized the contest, held in December 2011, to empower collision shop employees to “get a life” by using Mitchell RepairCenter. RepairCenter, Mitchell said, is the industry's first shop workspace solution that manages the repair, customer and business from a single personalized workspace. The technology streamlines key repair processes to help shops become more efficient.

"I'm thrilled that I won Mitchell's Get-a-Life Dream Vacation. I couldn't believe that I won,” Kephart said. "Mitchell RepairCenter is a great program that helps me daily in my job, from managing and navigating through files to get information on a certain file. I'm looking forward to having an amazing time in Maui with my mother."

"Congratulations to Wicklunds CARSTAR for winning Mitchell's Get-a-Life Dream Vacation," said Jim O'Leary, vice president of repair solutions for Mitchell. "We believe that a trusted partnership—founded on listening, responsiveness and collaboration—is the cornerstone of Mitchell's and our clients' success, and we will continue building on the value we deliver to the collision repair industry.”
