Following a fantastic evening at bodyshop awards 2017, an event held to recognise excellence in the car repair industry, Nationwide are delighted to announce that Glen Hall, Paint Technician from NCRC Thetford, has been named bodyshop Paint Technician of the Year.
The Annual bodyshop Awards, held this year on 30th September in Birmingham, showcases the best the industry has to offer. Glen was not short of support at the awards with a large Nationwide presence ready and waiting to cheer our finalists on.
Going up against the best painters in the industry, including Nationwide’s Shaun Sandford, Glen beat out the incredible competition to be named winner. Speaking after receiving his award Glen said the whole competition process has been a real eye opener for him. “I’m just your average painter and I never even considered that I could get to the finals of the competition, let alone win it,” said Glen.
“I’m amazed by what I’ve achieved, it’s difficult to put into words how I feel. I just go into work every day and paint cars, and all I did in the competition was do what I do every day. I was against extremely fierce competition, and can’t believe I won.
“I would advise anybody to have a go, I never thought I would come out as the winner so you have to just put yourself forward and have a crack at it! I will definitely be back next year to try to defend the title!”
Glen was presented with his award by special guest, Alex Horne, and received a huge round of applause from all those in the room.
Nationwide is dedicated to supporting all our team members, and are absolutely thrilled for Glen, whom we know has a very bright future with the group.
People Director, Louise Cope, said: “Award evenings like this are a fantastic way to recognise those team members who really strive for continued excellence. Glen is a real asset to the team and a very deserving winner. I’d like to give a mention to our other four finalists, who were just pipped to the post on the night. Their achievements are outstanding, and I’m sure many will be back next year to try again!”
