Pritchard on promoting from within: "We strive to put our people in positions that are best for them and best for us. If an employee expresses interest in moving ahead or we feel someone would fit better in another position, we work with that person to make the transition happen. A few of those advancements have been sales consultant to sales manager, lube tech to sales consultant and administrator to supervisor."
