After completing the UTI program, he continued his studies with specialized Mercedes repair training. Damian’s first job in automotive repair was with a Mercedes dealership, and then with Jaguar and Land Rover. Damian had been a student of Brandon’s at UTI, so a relationship was forged quite a while ago. Damian had been helping our store during our yearly free oil change events prior to ever working here, so when it came time to hire a new Service Advisor, Damian was an easy choice.
