Featured Story

Josh Katzman - 2019 ABSC Degree Graduate

Josh Katzman

My journey to The Automotive Business School of Canada (ABSC) started with the goal to pursue a post-secondary education in business. With an interest in cars and the unique industry that encompasses them, I was introduced to ABSC and knew it would be the right path to pursue. After four years at ABSC, I was able to gain work experience with some of the top and most recognizable organizations in the country. 

After graduation in August 2019, I started working for a manufacturers head office. After nearly 9 months with the organization, I was forced to re-evaluate my career path due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Knowing of the AutoIQ organization from my time at ABSC, I pursued an opportunity with the organization. Looking back, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. AutoIQ truly wants to see their own people grow within the organization and has a constant focus on innovation while providing a top-level customer experience. 

Many of my classmates and close friends from ABSC are now colleagues of mine within the AutoIQ Organization.

I started with AutoIQ as a Sales and Leasing Consultant at Ed Learn Ford Lincoln in my hometown of St. Catharines. I can confidently say that I have never learned more about myself and the industry from my short time in sales with the group.
