Tell us a little about your business. – We pride ourselves on being the diamond in the rough when it comes to vehicle service. As a non-appointment based company that will accommodate any commercial vehicles as they arrive, we strive to keep our clients’ vehicle downtime to an absolute minimum as we understand how important these are to their daily operations.
How did you get started in the business? – I have been blessed with the opportunity to work in many aspects of vehicle repair and have been able build my company from the good I have learned. The bad I have seen also plays a large part in how I run my facility as I have built this business to be not only the most efficient, but also the most integrity-led companies I have ever seen or done business with. Honesty is not just the best policy, it’s our most important policy.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – As most of you know starting a business from the ground up is extremely tough. So I would have to say this current venture has been my biggest challenge yet. It has been difficult but with the amount of support I have been blessed with, between the staff and our customers, I believe that anything is possible and look forward to many years of working with our local companies to keep them safely on the road (to success).
What has been your most important achievement professionally? – Doing what is right regardless of who is around.
Tell us a little about your family. – I have a six-year-old son William who started 1st grade this year and he is very excited about it. My beautiful wife Brandi works in the accounts receivable department of Kelly’s Carpet Omaha and is currently carrying our daughter Aubrey, who will most likely be with us by the time this is published.
What are you the most proud of? – Obviously the answer to this is my family, however that is a given and so secondly I am proud of the people behind Fleetmark Solutions. It’s a total team effort and without their dedication and upstanding practices none of this would be possible. We maintain the family feeling here at work and express that to our customers every day. Although the feeling of home can be hard to achieve, especially at a repair shop, we do our absolute best to get as close to that as we possible can. We treat each other like family, and our customers like family, so I guess the answer is truly family. It’s even in our motto: “Fleetmark Solutions: When you’re here, you’re family.”
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? – Be the best “me” I can be as no one else can do it for me. These are such strong words and I remember them on a daily basis. I stand behind everything I do and am focused on trying to be the best version of myself.
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be? – Inspired.
