BELLEVUE, Wa. – Service managers from Manitoba and Ontario were named as some of the best in the PACCAR Leasing Company’s network.

Kelly Whyte, of C.T.S. Lease and Rental, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, was named Kenworth service manager of the year for the Canadian region and Antonio Racioppo, of Peterbilt Ontario Truck Centres, in London, Ontario earned the title of Peterbilt service manager of the year, Canadian region.

The two Canadians, along with a number of US winners, were given their awards at Paccar’s maintenance management seminar in Anaheim, Calif. Taking the highest spots as overall winners were Robert Elliott of Rush Truck Leasing in Tampa Bay, Florida (Peterbilt) and Buddy Newton of MHC Truck Leasing in Colorado Springs, Colorado (Kenworth).

The awards ceremony wrapped up a two-and-a-half day meeting filled with 18 technical presentations.

“Maintenance is a critical component for lease customers in order for them to minimize downtime–and we feel it’s a competitive advantage for Paccar Leasing,” said Rick Tapp, PacLease’s maintenance manager. “Our technicians work on Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks, they’re factory-trained, and know the truck models inside and out.”
