Remington Ortner is commencing a career most every guy will envy. Starting Nov. 1, he has been hired by the Ferrari Maserati Factory Collision Center in Beverly Hills to work on those jewels of the automotive world.
Ortner, a 2007 graduate, was one of Matt Boren’s star pupils in shop classes and as a member of Skills USA. He earned a trip to the national Skills USA contest in 2007. His ability earned him a full ride scholarship to WyoTech, where he recently completed the specialized program.
WyoTech suggested Ferrari consider Ortner. They interviewed him in Redwood City and then sent him to Los Angeles for a second interview and hired him.
“I would not have made it without Skills USA. My focus and drive came from the encouragement and support of Matt Boren and his program,” said Ortner on a recent visit.
The Ferrari Maserati Beverly Hills dealership has won the Maserati Dealer of Excellence Award and from Ferrari they have been recognized for 100 percent customer satisfaction for 10 years.
