NationaLease Announces Regional Winners for 11th Annual NationaLease Tech Challenge

June 3, 2021, Downers Grove, IL — NationaLease, one of the largest full service truck leasing organizations in North America, announced the nine regional winners of the 2021 NationaLease Tech Challenge written exam. Typically, the nine regional winners would go on to compete in the NationaLease hands-on Tech Challenge in conjunction with the Maintenance Managers Meeting, to determine the top three placements. This year, due to continuing challenges around the COVID-19 pandemic, the hands-on portion of the Tech Challenge competition has been cancelled.  This year the nine regional winners were based solely on the written exam scores. The NationaLease Tech Challenge, now in its eleventh year, recognizes member company technicians with the opportunity to compete in a series of events testing their maintenance knowledge and skills.
