Brian is a very forward thinker and a progressive person, hence the involvement with the Bosch Car Service network and his insistence on staff upskilling to meet modern technology.

Matt Hosking

Senior Technician
Matt has been with MrBrakes for eighteen years. There is not much Matt doesn’t know about repairing brakes and clutches and now, as a result of some intensive training, he is very familiar vehicle diagnostics and the modern motor vehicle technology of petrol and diesel vehicles. Matt uses Bosch diagnostic equipment as a matter of course. Matt has completed all six modules of the Robert Bosch Diagnostic Technical Program, one of the few in the world to have done so.

Mark Fuhrmeister

Workshop Technician
Mark has been with us for ten years and has a wealth of brake and clutch knowledge. He is a master welder and can turn his hand to manufacturing anything and is a whiz with trailers and caravans and light commercials. He seems to draw the short straw whenever one of these appears. Mark is pleased that our new workshop provides plenty of room to work on these larger vehicles.

Jim Burns

Jim is a third year apprentice who came to us from the Ballarat Mazda dealership. Jim commenced his apprenticeship a little later in life than most due to his desire to learn all he can about the automotive trade and he has chosen the right place to do this. He is rapidly becoming a valuable member of our team. Jim likes to be challenged with a variety of jobs and tackles everything with enthusiasm. He will be completing his apprenticeship with Kangan Institute.

Ryan Hutcheson

Ryan joined us from a Toyota dealership, where he completed his apprenticeship. He is a recent new resident of Ballarat with his partner and young Oliver and a welcome employee. Ryan’s knowledge of Toyota’s is extensive and he is quickly learning about the great variety of other makes and models that we have through the workshop. He is a great asset to our team.
