Jean Charles Dupuis, Chief Operations Officer of Fix Auto Canada has announced sponsorship of auto body technician and Skills Canada competitor Vyolaine Dujmovic.
Dujmovic was given the opportunity to put her studies to practice at Fix Auto Henri-Bourassa, as part of a corporate mentorship program where owner-operator Nuno Victorino rapidly took notice of her talent. “From day one, Vyolaine was a great example of the next generation of body shop technicians” said Victorino, “she was eager to embrace challenges and her exceptional capabilities were quickly evident.”
It was this dedication, which elevated Dujmovic to the top ranks of auto body repair in Canada. She took part in the first skills competitions in Winnipeg, from May 31 to June 2, which will be followed by a summer and fall of practice in preparation for the October global competition in Abu Dhabi. “I am very proud and honoured to represent Canada on the world stage” said Dujmovic, “I am also incredibly grateful to my Fix Auto family for their continued support and generosity.”
Jean Charles Dupuis says he was immediately impressed by the young talent, “Vyolaine embodies the enthusiasm, energy and commitment of the Fix Auto network,” he said. “As an organization, we are committed to leading the automotive aftermarket industry by investing into new and innovative technologies, along with the skilled workforce required to work within this new reality.”
Fix Auto will support Dujmovic this year as she prepares for upcoming competitions. She will also act as youth ambassador of Fix Auto Canada at educational and informational expositions showcasing the next generation of collision repair talent.
