Scot works as our General Manager. He’s been in the professional automotive industry for 21 years. You can find him working in the shop, training technicians, and chatting with customers, many who have become long time friends.
Growing up working on cars in the garage with his dad gave Scot a love for cars at an early age. He and his dad had many conversations in that garage about opening their own auto repair shop together one day. At 14 he and his dad started restoring what would eventually be his first truck.
As soon as he graduated high school he got his first job working at a Toyota dealership. Simultaneously he enrolled in Riverside Community College’s Toyota T-10 program where he was certified as a Toyota / Honda factory trained technician. He is certified as an ASE Master Technician and Diagnostic Technician. He moved on to working at a Honda Dealership where he became a Platinum Level Technician.
For the last 10 years he has continued to take multiple certified dealer technician courses to make BMW, Mini and Porsche (or “and other German makes and models) his main focus.
In 2007 he was just as excited as his dad when their dream of opening up a family shop finally happened. Working alongside his family and helping running GT Imports has literally been a dream come true for Scot and he continues ongoing education to keep up to date with all the latest models and newest technology.
Like any true lover of cars, even when Scot’s not at work his hobby has been building and fabricating several off road vehicles that he takes out 4x-ing in the mountains. When he’s not running the shop or building cars, Scot loves brewing craft beer, camping, playing guitar and spending time with his family.
