Brasel is Auto Value Store Manager of the Year
Automotive Parts Headquarters, a St. Cloud-based aftermarket auto parts distributor and store group, named Wayne Brasel as the recipient of the 2010 Auto Value Store Manger of the Year award. Brasel is the manger of the Wadena Auto Value parts store. He was recognized during an awards banquet at Automotive Parts Headquarters' annual Winter Conference on Monday, Jan. 17, at Cragun's Resort in Brainerd.
Each year Auto Value regional managers throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Michigan have the opportunity to nominate a store manager they believe deserves the award.
Brasel began his career with the Wadena Auto Value parts store in 2003.
"Since taking over the reins, he has grown store sales by building a reputation for top-notch customer service," said Corey Bartlett, president of Automotive Parts Headquarters. "In fact, he has gone above and beyond the call of duty so many times that he was recently awarded the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance's 110 percent Award." This award pays tribute to those who have given outstanding customer service.
When away from work, Brasel enjoys spending time with his family and participating in many local civic organizations. He also takes pleasure in fishing, watching racing and restoring cars.
