Sharp Master Tech National Champion – Tim Olson

Tim Olson Sharp Master Tech 2019

We are excited to congratulate Tim Olson for taking first place overall in the 2019 Sharp Master Tech Competition!

With more than 3,000 technicians representing approximatively 425 dealerships from across the United States, this competition tested a technician’s knowledge in a wide variety of topics such as networking, printing, and Sharp technology.

Tim earned the top spot from the Western region during the competition held in Santa Ana, California. Tim then represented Les Olson Company in Montvale, New Jersey for the final competition. There he competed against finalists from the Western, Central and Eastern regions.

We are so proud to see him named the “Sharp Master Technician” champion! Over many years of dedicated service to Les Olson Company, Tim has proven his technical skills, hard work, and commitment. He has shown these attributes once again by accomplishing this great achievement.

Greg Gumpright, Director of Services and Support at Sharp Electronics Cooperation USA, said “While receiving his prize, Tim said that It was such a fun time going to California, to New York studying and working hard. He is proud to keep the tittle here in Les Olson Company, and is more thankful to everybody from Les Olson Company for the collaboration and hard work to make Les Olson Company’s dealership be the best in the country.”

Of note, Kerry Pederson was the previous champion and is also a member of the Les Olson Company Service Team.

Greg Gumpright, Director of Services and Support at Sharp Electronics Cooperation USA, said “My biggest thing with Tim was, I know the dedication he put into studying it. He really was pushing, so it made a difference.”

From the entire Les Olson Company team – “Way to go Tim! We are so proud of your accomplishment!”
