McGrath Auto is proud to have Walter Loesch on the McGrath Team! He earned the Difference Maker Award for March for going above and beyond to fix a driver’s flat tire on his lunch break without any hesitation.
“On my way home today, I pulled over with a flat tire on my Jeep. Just as I realized that I did not have my phone on me, a young man pulled up and asked if he could help. When I asked if I could borrow his phone, he said, “You can borrow it, but if you’ve got a couple of minutes I can just change your tire for you.” He got to work, and I was on my way in no time. He was helpful, pleasant and courteous – and probably on his lunch hour. You are fortunate to have such a wonderful employee representing your business. When I replace my Jeep, I will certainly start looking for a new vehicle at Pat McGrath’s.” -Amy Butz
