Leslie is the daughter of a wonderful lady who has kept our offices clean and tidy for over 22 years. Naturally, Leslie never missed a Christmas party or any other event over the years. She is a straight A student and is always ready to take on a challenge.
Leslie often helped out in our front office during her summer breaks, and over the years learned all the office tasks from Deborah. Whenever we needed help to fill in for someone who was sick or on vacation, she was always eager to help us out. Somehow the day came when TGA needed more help and of course Leslie was here for us.
Today you are likely to hear her voice on the phone and meet her when picking up your car. She can do it all. We are very proud of her. She not only works almost full time for TGA, but she attended school, never neglected her studies, and has big plans for her future. She is the kind of “kid” (now a young lady) that her parents, and everyone in this country can be proud of.
Leslie's TGA experience in her own words:
From my mother, two brothers, and now myself; we have been a part of the TGA family for many years. I’ve grown into the TGA family as a child where I attended the annual company Christmas parties, working part-time during my summer vacations, and now working full time as an administrative assistant.
Over the years, Deborah, office manager; has taught me the importance of accounting and running a business. She has been my biggest asset; not only as my teacher but, as a mentor as well. I am very appreciative of all her support and very lucky to be apart of her office.
Never did I imagine as a little girl, I’d be sitting in the front office being one of the first individuals you see when entering TGA. Not to mention, Hans and Peter are marvelous bosses. I am forever grateful for the opportunity in being a part of a such welcoming and loving family. It is a pleasure coming to work being able to help our customers meet their vehicles needs and seeing the joy when they leave our facility satisfied.
For many years, TGA has proudly participated in the Texas Environmental Compliance Commitment Partnership Program (C2). Our technician, David Machado, has a daughter who was instrumential in our success of that program and has helped turn the TGA office around for the betterment of the environment. Years ago when she learned at school about the importance of recycling, she wasted no time in implementing it here at TGA.
Kylie Machado, now 12 years old, is one of many great employees' kids that we have watched grow up over the years that we have been in business. Kylie is a top notch student who can not be without a meaningful job, so when her school schedule allows, she takes over our front office and helps out. We are very proud of her because she was the only one who succeeded in enforcing recycling in our shop and office!
