In early 2008 Shane was promoted to Sales Manager where he again excelled winning the President’s Award (Ford’s highest award for customer satisfaction) twice.

Throughout his automotive career Shane has been involved with the expertise that Automotivaters brings – both through sales training and private sale events.
