As a second generation 'car guy', I have been around the automotive industry in many different levels for most of my life. I started washing cars at a large local dealership when I was thirteen. While I attended the University of Tennessee, I began selling cars and when I graduated from UT in 1991, I made the automotive industry my career.
In 1992, I was selling cars for Rocky Top Chevrolet here in Lenoir City when I was given the opportunity to move into management as the service manager. While working at the dealership, I graduated from the General Motors College of Management at Emory University in Atlanta. I feel very fortunate to have worked at a small town dealership where customer satisfaction was a very high priority. When the dealership sold in 2002, I was not sure where my career path would lead.
Fortunately, the many customers I had come to know so well helped to guide me to where I am today. So many customers suggested that my wife Kristi and I open our own service center that we decided to make the leap of faith. We started out in an old and very small building and with the overwhelming support of our loyal customers, we quickly out grew that facility. In 2005, we finished construction and moved into our new facility where we are today. It is my goal to continue to build long term relationships based on high quality work, competitive prices, and courteous, honest service.
Lynn White our shop foreman has been our lead technician since we opened our doors in 2002. Lynn has been a life long resident of Loudon County where he and his wife Misti have three children in local schools. Lynn started helping his father work on vehicles soon after he could walk and he has never stopped.
His formal career as an automotive technician began when he started working for a local new car dealer. At the dealership, he was offered the opportunity to participate in many different kinds of training classes and programs. Taking full advantage of the opportunity, Lynn received many certifications and gained a wealth of experience while working at the dealership.
Since leaving the dealer and starting with Automotive Solutions Lynn has continued to focus on training. He has made it a top priority to keep up with the changing technology and equipment required to be a professional in the automotive repair industry. Lynn's experience, training, and hard work ethic have made it possible for him to become one of the few certified ASE Master Technicians in our area. Lynn takes great pride in providing quality and professional service for our customers.
