Walser is representing the June edition of Digital Dealer Magazine! In the cover story, our CEO, Andrew Walser, talks about where we've been as a company and where we're going.
Walser is a company of amazing people working in one of the most exciting industries in the world. It’s the “work hard play hard” mentality of each employee that keeps our culture and business thriving. A company of our size and scope doesn’t succeed by resting; we are constantly re-examining our capabilities and processes to ensure that our company is as strong and vital as our heritage. Being a team member at Walser means that no matter your title or position we are all here for the same reason; from general manager to parts runners, we work together to revolutionize the customer experience. There is no “ivory tower” at Walser, all of our senior management team is seated in the heart of our open floor plan which holds us true to one of our core values; leading by example. Each Walser employee is encouraged and empowered to do the right thing and to act with courageous integrity. It’s an energizing, innovative, environment where you will receive support wherever you need it.
When it comes to automotive service—we’ve got the best of the best. In April, Walser Nissan Wayzata Service Specialist Chris Kemp advanced to the Regional competition for the Nissan Service Technician Excellence Competency award. Chris and a select number of service technicians from around the country were tested on their Nissan product knowledge and expert technical skills while working on bugged vehicles. While Chris didn’t take the win, he called it a great experience and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Congrats, Chris!
Walser employees are known to go above and beyond. That couldn’t be truer for Executive Assistant Donna Rizner. For the last six years, Donna and her sister, Vicki, have been keeping Minnesota’s homeless population a little bit warmer with Mittens On A Mission. Each winter, Donna and a team of volunteers sews and distributes over 1,000 mittens to the homeless in downtown Minneapolis. Every pair is re-purposed from old wool sweaters. Their season winds down each spring, but Donna and Mittens on a Mission will be back to keep on giving again this fall.
Walser leads by example. We volunteer. We donate.
The Walser Foundation puts 5 percent of its pre-tax profits right back into the community. That’s because we live here, too.
When employees want time to give back to their communities—we support that (and we even pay them for it, too). Walser is a family-owned, family-run business that believes in the work-life balance.
We believe that every child deserves a bright future, and every person should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. Access to education and career training make this possible. The Walser Foundation provides grants to organizations that benefit education at all levels, as well as those organizations that help build a strong workforce for the future.
