Jim Goguen of Jims Auto Installations & Detailing Center was named Detailer of the Year 2013 at the annual Mobile Tech Expo held in Orlando, FL the last week of January. Mobile Tech Expo is the largest international show for the auto appearance and reconditioning professionals in the United States. Goguens detailing peers from around the country submitted a short recommendation for why they believe their nominee deserved the recognition.

The most flattering aspect of winning this award is that it comes from my peers within the industry, said Goguen, whose store has been providing high-end automotive detailing and automotive and truck accessories for over 25 years. I know so many of these guys because we work across state lines on shared projects. All of these guys work hard to be the best at what they do, and they are all deserving of the same recognition.
