"This is a mantra I drill into the minds of every employee because there is nothing that we can't do. It is through this mindset and my dedication to our customers that I will be able to continue to lead the Mr. Transmission and Milex Complete Auto Care into further success." In fact the addition of Milex Complete Auto Care in 2006 has allowed him the opportunity to offer his customers full car care service.

Franchise owners are eligible for nomination of Franchisee of the Year if they are current recipients of the Moran Industries Award of Excellence.
