Four Americans Earn Medals at the Hyundai World Skills Olympics

Recently, Hyundai concluded the company's 12th annual World Skills Olympics in Korea, a biennial event that pits Hyundai service experts and technicians from all over the world against each other in a variety of Olympic-style events. Hyundai Motor America (HMA) sent four American platinum-rated technicians to the event, and all four brought back medals.

Robert Tyler Johnson, from North Carolina, took home the Overall World Top Technician silver medal, while Jake Rigdon, from Minnesota, earned a gold medal in the Electrical category. Virginia's Ty Mooney received a silver medal in the Chassis category, and North Carolina's Bradley Draughon earned a medal for Excellent skills.

More than 72 service personnel from 53 countries gathered at Hyundai Motor's Technical Center for the 2017 event, which included practical evaluations of engines, chassis, electric devices and automatic transmissions, as well as a written exam.

The World Skill Olympics were created to improve customer satisfaction at Hyundai Service Centers around the world by improving service technicians' skills.

In a press release, Dave VandeLinde, Director, Dealer Service Process, Hyundai Motor America, commented, "Our Hyundai technicians are the foundation of great customer satisfaction and loyalty. All of us at HMA could not be more proud of our team's accomplishments in the WSO. The professional development of our amazing technicians, including these World Skills Olympics is a vital part of our goal to deliver even BETTER customer experiences and products."
