BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Professional Carwashing & Detailing team announced this year’s Most Valuable Carwasher (MVC) in the October issue, which is now available online.

For this week’s video, meet Mike Hulburt, a store manager for Autobell Car Wash’s Virginia Beach location and the recipient of our 2015 MVC award.

In the October issue, Assistant Editor Maria Woodie shares Hulburt’s story, which is full of ambition, dedication and determination.

“In 2005 Hulburt, a 16-year-old junior at Floyd E. Kellam High School, started to work for Autobell Car Wash in Virginia Beach. Two years later, a young and determined Hulburt was promoted to an assistant manager,” writes Woodie in the article. “He continued to work his way up through the ranks, becoming a store manager for the carwash chain’s location in Newport News, Virginia, before coming back to his roots at the Virginia Beach location in 2011.”
