Our good friend Paul Koerner, aka The Corvette Mechanic, shared a new video this afternoon in which he formally announced he is leaving his position as a service technician at Key Chevrolet in Connecticut to take a position with General Motors.
Citing that he felt that he had accomplished everything he could at the dealership level after being certified as a GM World Class Technician for the past 14 years, Paul says the opportunities presented to him by General Motors offer a new challenge that has been years in the making.
“I’m really looking forward to working with these people and I am looking forward to another challenge as someone who just loves to get dirty on cars,” Paul says. He adds, “It’s part of my next level of development, and I don’t where this is going to take me, I don’t know if it’s going to be for me, but I know General Motors is doing everything to make the transition as easy as possible, and I’m the luckiest service technician, I think, in the world.”
Paul thanked those who have helped and supported his efforts along the way including his past dealerships and principals he has worked for, and of course, he talks about how appreciative he is for those that he has been able to help along the way.
Paul says he will still be doing events around the country and he’s being allowed to continue the Corvette Mechanic website and Facebook pages as well. He signs off saying “It will still be my pleasure to serve each and every one of you as to the best of my abilities, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you very much for everything.”
On behalf of us at CorvetteBlogger, I would like to wish Paul congratulations on the new endeavor and we know he’s going to crush it!
