Callaghan Motors workshop controller Antonio Sanelli has been named the Mitsubishi Motors Technician of the Year.
Mr Sanelli, an automotive technician, participated in the Mitsubishi 2016 Skills Program, which tested participants’ abilities in diagnosing jobs and car faults, product knowledge and hands-on skills.
Mr Sanelli was a regional finalist in 2013 and 2014 and said he was pleased to be named the top Mitsubishi technician in Australia.
He has been a mechanic for the past 22 years and worked at Callaghans for seven years. Mr Sanelli said he enjoyed the job and problem solving.
“I love diagnostics. I just love it,” Mr Sanelli said.
Service manager Rob Lee said it was an excellent and well-deserved achievement. “Being top in Australia in anything you do is pretty good so we’re very pleased,” Mr Lee said. “He puts a lot of work into it too.”
Mr Sanelli will travel to Japan in May as part of his award package.
