Impact: Valdez has been with Tommy’s Express Car Wash in Fort Myers, Florida, since September 2019 and has proven himself to be a valuable asset to the wash. His previous employment as a team member with Tommy’s Express Car Wash in Jenison, Michigan, made his transition to a carwash manager an easy one. Valdez has outstanding customer service skills and is a very professional team leader at such a young age. Valdez is a very mature and professional young man and prides himself on leading by example.


This young man started working right out of high school; in such a very short time, he rose from being a team member to an outstanding team leader. He takes pride in mentoring other young employees, like himself, and helping them strive to be outstanding employees and team members like he was taught.

Valdez has come such a long way in such a short time. He takes pride in his work and loves to come to work every day. Over the past four months, he has started to work on all the equipment and make major repairs and maintenance; he is asking a lot of questions and wants to learn every aspect of the wash. Valdez is an amazing young man who has come from a family that practices strong values.
