Meet the Staff of Auto Solutions
Josh & Hunter - Partners
Our parents started Auto Solutions 18 years ago when Hunter and I were teenagers. We started out detailing cars and worked our way through every area of the business, getting fired a time or two along the way. We’ve been fortunate to learn from our parents as well as countless others who taught us the ropes of the car business. Our parents eventually retired from the daily operations. We run the business together these days (alongside some of our closest friends). Our three Core Values are: Reputation, Quality, and Employee Satisfaction. The first two are givens, but the third may seem like a reach. What we mean by Employee Satisfaction is not that we as employees matter more than customers, quite the opposite. It's that customer satisfaction is the lifeblood of Auto Solutions and the best way for us to achieve that is through satisfied employees. When you text or call or meet our sales staff, you'll sense genuine care and a level of happiness you won't find most places. Sure, they hope you'll buy from them. But, if you don't, that's okay too, because there will always be more customers down the line. We just want you to know we respect you, your time, and your hard-earned money. We can't promise we'll be perfect, we can't promise our cars will be perfect (although we inspect them and offer warranties on every one), but we can promise to tell you the truth and always be transparent.
Chuck - General Manager
Chuck was asked to list his hobbies as well as what he enjoys about working at Auto Solutions. Instead, responded with the lyrics to a Hank, Jr. song. In his defense, this sums him up pretty well. Here they are:
Logan - Assistant Store Manager
Logan is one of the longer-tenured employees at Auto Solutions. He does a little bit of everything for the store. This father of two loves playing softball, pick-up basketball, and perusing garage sales and pawn shops. In another life, he would have been part of the show American Pickers.
Nicki - Internet Manager
Nicki has experienced a meteoric rise through the ranks of Auto Solutions in a short time, entirely due to her work ethic and can-do attitude. Her husband previously worked here and mentioned she was interested in a part-time job. Not long after, she was running one of the most important and fastest-growing departments in our company.
Codi - Accountant
The smartest person on staff, Codi is our resident CPA. She left her firm in Knoxville to be closer to home and work alongside her husband. Don't be fooled by her innocent looks, she has been known to execute some of the harshest pranks in the office. She is expecting her third child in February 2021.
Derek - Sales
Derek is not only an employee of the car business but he also considers himself a car enthusiast. He holds in his garage a super rare 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix that was designed as a concept car, to later be crushed but was able to keep this classic from the clutches of a crusher. He is both a proud husband and father to two wonderful children. When Derek isn't at work you are likely to find him at the river fishing from a kayak. Feel free to stop by and shoot the bull but beware he is an Ohio State fan!
Austin - Sales
Austin Martin, not to be confused with Aston Martin, is a person and not a car. Austin is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys fishing, hunting, and hiking. When it comes to vehicles, some of his favorites include Toyota Tacoma's and Corvettes, especially the Z06. Come by and Austin will be glad to show you our car, truck and SUV inventory!
Mark - Sales
Homemade, homegrown. Born in the hospital one mile from our store. Mark is a true hometown guy! He attended Maryville Christian School where he played golf, winning SCAA low medalist twice. During his senior year, Mark began serving in the youth ministry at his church which he still serves in different capacities. He enjoys sports, his family, and bonsai trees.
Chris - Sales
Chris brings a lifetime of sales experience to Auto Solutions and you immediately see it when first meeting him. He left a sales job in a different sector which he had held for 13 years to be a part of Auto Solutions and try his hand in the car business. His reviews speak for himself. Chris is a true pro.
