“TCS is delighted with the addition of Mr. Williamson,” stated Barry Reese, President of TCS. “Being a veteran tire guy himself, Bill has quickly made traction with both TCS customers and future customers. With having “been there” himself, Bill has already proven he can understand and meet the needs of dealers in need of a technology upgrade.”
In order to maintain a high level and friendly support staff with the increased load of business, TCS welcomes Mickie Gardenhire and Chris Puckett aboard in Tennessee as their newest Customer Support Representatives. Mickie brings with her 11 years professional software support service experience and Chris spent 6 years in a family tire business and in addition has extensive experience in sales, support and management.
