When Shane and Chad decided to open and run 12th Street Auto almost ten years ago, it seemed obvious to both of them who would be in the “front of the house.” Chad not only has auto experience, he also has auto shop experience. Even as a small kid, Chad spent time in his dad’s auto shop, and he grew into the business, service, and sales end of the shop quite naturally. Of course, Chad can handle himself under a hood, having spent 6 years as a technician. But his real love is for the client and business side. He’s been, over the years, a service manager, a parts manager, an auto body manager, and a fixed operations director. And each of his roles, right up to his current one heading up management at 12th Street Auto, his first and foremost concern is for the people, both is employees and his customers. In his free time, Chad is most likely to be with his wife, Megan, and their five daughters, Courtney, Piper, Reese, Alivia, and Sawyer.
