Penske announces 2019 Master Technician award

The Penske Guild 2019 Master Technician has been awarded to a Penske Power Systems employee in Perth.

Bryce Bell edged out five other finalists in the contest which involved technicians from Australia and New Zealand who competed in qualification rounds ahead of last week's grand final.

The annual skills and diagnostics contest includes general procedural tasks as well as advanced diagnostics scenarios, all done while racing the clock.

“At Penske, we understand the importance of recognising and rewarding our very best technicians and the flow on benefits that come from a competition such as this,” said Russell Koch, Training Manager On-Highway and Development.

“The competition is a great way to publicly display the technical excellence we are renowned for, both within our own organisation and the broader industry in general."

Having been with the organisation for almost a decade, Bell has worked across the full Penske Power Systems product portfolio including MTU, Detroit, Allison Transmission and, more recently, Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus and Dennis Eagle.

“Since joining the organisation in 2010 as an apprentice, Bryce has displayed a great willingness to develop which has carried him through to achieving this accolade,” said Sean McLean, General Manager – On-Highway.

“Whether in the workshop leading by example, or in the field managing one of our breakdown services for remote Western Australian customers, he demonstrates exemplary technical skills which were evident in the grand final on Friday.”

As the Penske Guild’s Master Technician, Bell will receive a trip to the United States to tour the world-class manufacturing facilities of Detroit and Daimler Trucks North America.

He will also tour the Team Penske motorsport facility in North Carolina.
