People ask us how we can provide such great service at such a compeititve price. Our answer is our people! No really, our team is hands-down the best you'll find. Here are a few secrets about us.
President & CEO
Beth is our car geek. In addition to having been President of venture-backed iMotors, she spent several years consulting to autodealers on brands ranging from Ford to McLaren. She swears that a Lexus is in her future! Beth’s eclectic background includes running OfficeDepot.com and Weather.com and working in the very early (too early one might say) days of interactive tv. Outside of work she’s an adventurous chef and cyclist -- though not at the same time. She’s also a proud graduate of the University of Virginia and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. She’s also her daughter’s number one fan.
Our resident “numbers guy,” Chris is our go-to man for everything accounting, HR, finance, legal -- well, you get the picture. He bounced in to the tire world from the mattress industry where he was the CFO of Mattress Discounters. Previously, Chris survived over ten years in public accounting with a primary focus on auditing, SEC and financial reporting matters of mid-sized public and private companies, including working at PricewaterhouseCoopers. We sleep well knowing that our numbers are safe in Chris’ hands since he’s a fully licensed certified public accountant. He’s also a certified Dad to two young boys.
VP of Operations
You might say that Kevin is the captain of our well-oiled operational machine. Having been a sea captain and an extreme white-water kayaker, he’s just the man to handle the excitement of tires. He also has held executive roles in four start-up/early-stage ventures (an extreme sport of its own). A graduate of the Thunderbird School of International Management (MBA), Kevin has extensive supply chain, customs and operational experience in global manufacturing and logistics in over 30 countries. He’s also an avid cyclist. On the weekends you may spot him out and about around town hauling his two small boys.
Director of Sales and Marketing
Nobody changes hats faster than Taran. At AutoSquad he handles customer care, business development, website development, and much more. No stranger to planes and trains, Taran rolled in to AutoSquad from another startup venture, Railway Media. Previously he was a jet setter with United Airlines where he honed his customer focus and ran a large operations unit. A true foodie, we think that Taran has probably tried 22,000 of the 23,000 restaurants in the DC area.
As the heart and soul of AutoSquad, these guys -- and gals -- are multi-talented. In addition to being the best of the best as tire installers, they also have to drive big, heavy trucks. Neither rain nor sleet, nor hail -- you get the idea -- these guys do it all. And, you’ll find them to be on time and friendly. We know it’s a tall order. That’s why we’re picky about who we hire.
Our Tire Experts
We dare you to try to stump our tire experts with a question about tires. They truly know it all. With training from the manufacturers and lots of research, they are prepared to help customers find the right tires. Like our techs, they’re multi-taskers, answering phones, emails and chats. However you want to communicate, they’ll meet you there.
