Meet the Business Owner

Bob D.

I start­ed at Clayton’s fresh out of tech­ni­cal school in 1993. In many ways Clayton was much more than an em­ploy­er, more of a men­tor and friend. Along the way he taught me not only how to repair ve­hi­cles, but that being a pro­fes­sion­al is more about hon­es­ty and trust, coup­led with a com­mit­ment to being the best that you can be by con­stant­ly train­ing and grow­ing to bring the best to your com­pany. Now as the owner I try to in­still his teach­ings to all my co­work­ers so that we can pro­vide a com­plete ex­per­i­ence when you vi­sit our small but hum­ble es­tab­lish­ment.
