Nash beat 100 other entrants from the Mercedes UK network, with a shortlist of six facing a day of practical challenges at Mercedes-Benz UK, Barnsley. Competitors were judged on their ability to correctly identify a series of faults and had to demonstrate their understanding of diagnostic software.
His prize is a trip to the US, which will take in visits to several facilities owned by Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler.
“The final was intense, but also enjoyable and informative,” says Nash, who has worked for Intercounty for 10 years.
“The challenges were tough and I was surprised and delighted to emerge as the victor. Now I can’t wait to get on that plane to America.”
Nash (right) received his trophy from Sam Whittaker, director of customer service and operations for Mercedes-Benz and Fuso Trucks.
Whittaker says: “Carl has shown a great level of knowledge and understanding of our products and our brand. “Over a series of theoretical and practical tests he and his fellow finalists demonstrated an extremely high level of technical skill. We are incredibly proud to know this exacting standard of work is carried out daily within our dealerships, to help keep our customers’ vehicles working at peak performance.”
