Probst Auto Body received the Management Success! Master Elite Shop Management Award during the Spring 2016 Convention.
The Management Success! Master Elite Shop Award has been given to seven shops since its inception four years ago. The criteria to receive the award involves extensive training in all areas of auto body shop management, including apprenticeships. The shop must also be actively demonstrating that they are applying the tools of management at the highest level of performance. The business must be an example of an effective and operational model shop.
Mark Probst compiled 138 documents and a 20-minute video to qualify for this award. Mark and his sister, Karla, attended the Management Success! convention in Scottsdale, Ariz., on April 8th, where he was presented the award in front of his fellow shop owners.
“Receiving the award was nice, but it was never just about the award,” said Probst. “It has allowed me to create a better family life, I have been able to offer more to my employees, and it has allowed me the extra time to get involved in the community and make a difference.”
Probst Auto Body, located in Dieterich, Ill., has been locally owned and operated by Mark Probst since 2003.
