Using his extensive Mercedes-Benz dealership knowledge and experience, he transformed German Motors into a modern service and repair facility specializing solely in Mercedes-Benz. He acquired all the latest and most advanced Mercedes-Benz-approved diagnostic equipment, built a comprehensive data library, and hired and trained service technicians to his exacting professional standards. Under his direction, the shop has become known for its technical expertise and customer service.
