Professional Profile

A dedicated Fixed Operations Professional with over 30 years experience. I have turned around multiple poor performing operations to highly profitable operations. I’ve built operations from start-ups to the crown of service success through Word of Mouth Marketing . Having achieved an extensive track record of Fixed Operations successes by focusing on 3 stages of vehicle maintenance. They are Routine Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance and Predicative Maintenance following the right program I believe no customer should ever be dissatisfied with their vehicle. Team building, recruiting and training ensure the success of today’s dealership Fixed Operations. I firmly believe a customer should be a customer for life based on the level of service they are given.
