Doug Callaghan, CEO of Vic’s Service Centre in Wainright, Alberta Canada is the winner of the 2016 Auto Care
Association ACE (Automotive Career and Education) award. Doug shares his story of transformation, recognized by Auto Care, that earned him this recognition.
Doug made a significant decision in early 2015 when he took how his business was operating and threw it all in the garbage. He started from scratch. Everything. He says, “a lot of owners that ask for the help and invest in the outside training yet fail to provide the leadership to make those ideas and plans become reality, I was not going to let that happen. I wanted to see an increase in our net profit and a better life for myself and my team”. He continues that commitment today. Doug has experience working with disaster plans with the Credit Union Board that he chairs. Find other episodes that feature Doug HERE.
