Each year, the ASE selects the top 40 and honors them as standing above and beyond their peers with the title, “Tech of the Year.” For consideration by ASE, potential nominees must be master certified, and score above average across all automobile series tests within the past 12 months.
Regan has 28 years of automotive experience, and 15 years of experience working as a master technician at Pep Boys. “This means a great deal to me and my family,” said Regan. “My friends, family and coworkers know how hard I work and the passion I put into my career.
