Congratulations to Rachel Fashing, who is celebrating her 20th year at Copart. She began her career at Copart in 1997 as a Customer Service Representative at Copart Tulsa. Over the next twenty years, Rachel’s career would flourish, ultimately placing her in her current role as General Manager (GM) of Yard 19 in Tulsa, OK.
A fun fact about Rachel is that since graduating high school, Copart is the only company she has worked for. Rachel started working at Copart while she was attending college, and she loved it so much, she never left! “It feels unbelievable to hit 20 years with Copart. I’m one year shy of spending half my life here. When I started at Copart I was in college working on a business degree and just wanted to learn how to operate a fax machine. I must have lost a year somewhere because when RM Billy Lawton sent me an e-mail congratulating me on my 20 years, I immediately thought he added wrong,” said Rachel.
Rachel’s personality is often noted by colleagues as bringing joy to the office on a daily basis. “Rachel was, and still remains, a “shining light” example of what you can achieve with a Copart career. I seriously doubt she has peaked, as she has so much leadership potential remaining….and she’s still so young,” said Lesley Teague, CDS Account Manager at Yard 19.
In two decades, Rachel has accomplished so much. Her resume includes being a R.A.C.E award winner, SPEAR team member and CAT team member. One of her most memorable moments was helping with the integration of the CAS system at the Manchester location in the United Kingdom.
Rachel’s success in her career is a prime example of what one can achieve when they believe in the mission, trust the vision and carry out the values of Copart. “Don’t ever give up on your Copart dreams. Work hard, stay positive, and be proactive. You can make it happen; I’m living proof it is possible,” said Rachel proudly.
We appreciate your commitment to challenge the norm, act with integrity and strive for excellence. The entire Copart family would like to congratulate you on your career milestone. Here’s to twenty more!
