A Part of the Family

Auto Value Store Manager of the Year 2010

St. Cloud, Minn. – January 20, 2011 – Automotive Parts Headquarters, a St. Cloud-based aftermarket auto parts distributor and store group, named Wayne Brasel as the recipient of the 2010 Auto Value Store Manager of the Year award.  He was recognized during an awards banquet at Automotive Parts Headquarters’ annual Winter Conference on Monday, January 17, 2011 at Cragun’s Resort in Brainerd, Minnesota.

Each year Auto Value regional managers throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Michigan have the opportunity to nominate a store manager they believe deserves the award.

Brasel began his career with the Wadena Auto Value parts store in 2003.  “Since taking over the reigns, Wayne has grown store sales by building a reputation for top-notch customer service,” commented Corey Bartlett, president of Automotive Parts Headquarters.  “In fact, he has gone above and beyond the call of duty so many times that he was recently awarded the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance’s 110% Award.”  This award pays tribute to those who have given outstanding customer service.

When away from work, Brasel enjoys spending time with his family and participating in many local civic organizations.  He also takes pleasure in fishing, watching racing and restoring cars.
