Hi All:

I am pleased to announce Michael Stoops has been promoted to Internet Technical Specialist / MOL Admin and will be taking over the responsibilities and key functions of Mike Phillips effective Monday, July 27th.

Since the inception of our Thursday Night Open Garage (TNOG) events nearly 4 ½ years ago and prior to becoming a Meguiar’s employee in 2008, Mike has made significant contributions to MOL and Meguiar’s. As a TNOG attendee and later a Customer Care Center employee, Mike has proactively worked with other attendees, customers and employees to provide education via phone, in-person, and on MeguiarsOnLine.com (MOL) regarding Meguiar’s products and techniques. There is no doubt that Mike is passionate about car care!

In addition to his new role as Internet Technical Specialist / MOL Admin, Mike will be facilitating and conducting our “Meguiar’s Garage” events including the TNOG’s and Saturday clinics as well as creating and delivering the MOL monthly newsletter.

Andy M. & Mark Kleis will continue as Moderators on MOL and will continue to work closely with Mike.

Please join me in congratulating Mike!

Aww man...come on, nobody likes Mike. He's so rude and never helps anybody, why would you pick him.

I'm outta here!!!!!!

No, in all seriousness, congratulations Mike! I know you will be great as the Admin here and instructor at the Meguiar's Garage.

I guess I'll try to stay around to bug you.

Having another Mike in charge will minimize confusion for new visitors; so many of the older posts have been addressed to Mike (Phillips) directly. :chuckle1
