Two Aim Leasing technicians placed among the top three in the 2017 NationaLease Tech Challenge in San Diego in April. JOHN NORWOOD, maintenance technician at the Aim shop in Elmhurst, took second place in the competition. John graduated from Aim’s apprentice program in 2016 and is the second apprentice to place in a NationaLease Tech Challenge. BOB MRZYGLOD, maintenance technician at our Buffalo facility, took third place. This isn’t his first time placing. Bob won first place in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. “This speaks highly of our apprentice program and also the effort that John and KORY STOUDT have put into the program to become such great technicians,” said CHRIS DISANTIS, corporate training director. John and Bob were among nine regional finalists tested in a series of events that measured their maintenance knowledge and skills. John, Bob and the first-place contestant, Richard Davis of Hogan Truck Leasing, will advance to represent NationaLease at the national TMC Super Tech Competition in Orlando, Fla. in September. The national competition is sponsored by the American Trucking Association. This was the seventh year for the Tech Challenge.

Each year Aim’s affiliate network “NationaLease” honors its top achieving sales professionals with the prestigious “Masters Club” award; this year Aim was proud to be represented by Matt Svancara, Executive Vice President of Sales and Mike Wall, Business Development Manager.
Masters Club status is based on a competitive point system with credits given for each piece of equipment a salesperson signed in the previous year. As a way of recognizing and acknowledging their hard work and impressive results, NationaLease hosts the annual event where awards are presented by Dean Vicha, President of NationaLease.
“Each year, the Masters Club recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of those sales professionals who have exceeded the highest threshold of performance,” said Joe Gallick, Senior Vice President of Sales for NationaLease. “Their success is largely the result of effort, accountability, perseverance, and the tremendous team spirit they inspire among their co-workers.”
Matt Svancara was a particular standout as this was his 10th consecutive year as a Masters Club award winner. He was personally recognized by Dean Vicha, NationaLease President.
“Matt exemplifies the integrity and professionalism that make him a recognized leader not only in our organization, but the industry as well. As a further honor, Matt has also been inducted with the first ever class into the NationaLease Sales Hall of Fame. Congratulations to Matt” says Dean.
Aim president Tom Fleming said of Matt’s achievement: “I am excited and proud of Matt on achieving 10 years in the Masters Club. This is an accomplishment that only a handful of individuals have achieved form the thousand or more NationaLease sales executives. Matt’s hard work, patient, consistent style and his practice of putting the customers interest first has served him, Aim and our customers well.”
