Brian Canny

Brian is a petrol head from way back and came to the industry via a previously life as an accountant and newsagent, his contribution to the team is paying accounts and wages and generally mentoring the staff. 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 sixteen 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.

Angus Wright

Service Technician
Angus has been with the company for about eight years. Angus is very quiet, but is a wealth of knowledge and is very dedicated to getting the best result for your car. There are no shortcuts with Angus, similar to the rest of the team. Angus has a history with Holden, Saab and Volvo, but can turn his mind to any make. He has also undergone some of the Bosch training regimen and is improving his diagnostic knowledge as a result.

Mark Fuhrmeister

Workshop Technician
Mark has been with us for ten years and has a wealth of brake and clutch knowledge.
