Francesco Moreno

Francesco Moreno

Francisco holds the position of Technical Trainer with ZF Aftermarket. His position supports the growth and training of technicians in the independent aftermarket. Most recently the Commercial Vehicle Team Leader, Francisco has over 11 years of experience at ZF on the remanufacturing production lines in both passenger car and commercial vehicle. Moreno is able to use his previous knowledge and experience of working on the remanufacturing production line to educate those technicians in the field. A priority of Moreno is to engage and educate technicians in the growing Hispanic automotive markets. Francisco‘s background includes a heavy focus on the ZF 6- and 8-speed transmissions, as well as ZF CV transmissions and axles.

There are a lot of tips Francisco can give to attendees of trainings, but the big one and most important one is to ASK. If it doesn't make sense, just ask. Trainers are there to help you, and make sure all the material is understood, and when you leave a ZF training you should feel confident to work on a unit by yourself.
