Gary "Doogie" Shop Owner

Gary Owner Tech

My name is Gary, also known as "Doogie". in 1995 I graduated from Purdue with a BA in aircraft manufacturing and repair. I came to CA in 1996 and I needed employment until the aircraft industry had growth. So I took a job with Made in Japan. I found that I believed in the shop's mission and decided to make it my career. As it turns out, auto repair and customer service proved to be very rewarding. In 2004 I took over ownership of the Fulton location and moved it to Howe Ave with the determination to take our shop to the next level of our evolution by providing a unique experience for both our clients and our crew. Our efforts keep us focused on our clients and their total experience here. We enjoy what we do and look forward to what the future has in store for us. I've also worked with B.A.R (Bureau of Automotive Repair) in Licensing, ASE NATEF, Automotive Training Institute, and currently sit on the PAC advisory board for UTI (Universal Technical Institute) here in Sacramento. At the end of 2011 I was asked to step in as the new owner of the larger Roseville location. At the beginning of 2015 we decided to open Rent 2 Wrench, a "Do It Yourself" facility, in our second building at the Roseville location. Now some of our clients can perform some of their own maintenance and repairs under the guidance of our Made in Japan-Made in America shop. As our family grows we will continue to define our industry and set the bar for quality, honesty, and integrity! 

 

Kevin Service Manager

My name is Kevin and I am the service manager here. My passion has always been providing great customer service! Before getting into the auto repair business with Doogie, I had spent 5 years working on a cruise ship and then 15 years, in my own business, coordinating social events for corporations. I even spent some time helping college students find financial aid for school. I just love helping people solve problems and making a positive difference in the lives of others. Working here is not a job it's a life style. I'm so glad to be in an environment where I get to work with such a talented group of people. This industry is very challenging but the joy of seeing a smile on a client's face after we solved their car issues and was able to save them money is well worth it! Getting to be the "hero" never gets old.

My name is Aaron, I am the shop foreman. I have over 23 years of experience in the field and I still learn something new every day. That's one of the reasons that I enjoy working here. Our shop is constantly sending us to school for advanced training that help us keep on top of the latest advancements in automotive care and diagnostics. Working here is like being part of an extended family, literally! I've never worked at a shop that values it's employees and clients as much as we do!

Jackie Audit Specialist

My name is Jackie, I came to Made in Japan-Made in America back in 1997. When ownership of the shops changed in 2004, I followed Gary to the Howe Ave shop. Now that he has taken over the Riverside location, I'll be working at both locations. I can't say enough about how much my life has changed by being apart of this family over the years. It is truly a blessing to be a part of his journey. Gary is like a son to me and it's been a true pleasure to watch him grow and evolve the business in to what it is today.

 
This area is reserved for someone special. If you are this person, stop by the shop to drop off a resume and meet our crew. We are always looking for new talent as we continue to grow.
