Chris Cook was born into the Automotive Industry, in 67’ and has stayed with it ever since…After graduating High School, and attending an Automotive Technical school, Chris started out as a mechanic, but 2 years later, had back surgery and could not return to working on cars; this allowed him to get into the Management side of the business. In 1999, Chris earned a degree, specifically in Automotive Management. This degree, along with his strong morals, values and ethics have helped mold his business philosophies and his desire to provide exceptional customer service.
