“Matt was our very first hire at this location. He helped us assemble all of the shop equipment and turned the first wrench on our very first car. He is one of the most talented Technicians I have ever seen. He is not afraid to tackle anything, from engines, transmissions and differentials to the most sophisticated european diagnostics, he can do it all. Matt holds a very special place in our hearts, not because of his tenure, but because of his dedication to us, our customers and the shop. After meeting his parents, it doesn’t take long to figure out where he gets his compassion, integrity, honesty and work ethic from. He is an unbelievable man that always puts others before himself.
