WASHINGTON, DC – An Ontario man has become the first Canadian to win Ryder System Inc.’s annual Top Technician competition. And if that’s not impressive enough, Canada took second place, too.
Darek Mowinski, of Windsor, ON, took home a cash prize of $50,000 as the winner of the 15th annual event held in Washington, D.C. on July 28.
Ken Bilyea, of London, ON, finished second.
While a Canadian has never won the Ryder Top Technician honor, in 2015 four Canucks were among the top eight from Ryder’s team of more than 5,000 U.S. and Canada-based technicians.
