It's the staff that really makes a business and at Sherwood Auto Repair, we have the best.

Bob has been with us for 8 years. He came to us with vast knowledge and experience in the automotive industry. He is likely the voice on the phone and the face at the front counter that will engage you when you call or stop by the shop. As the Service Advisor he is our air traffic controller. Ensuring that the customers' concerns and service requests are documented for the technicians to interpret. Bob puts together the estimates and prioritizes the repairs while communicating these things to the customers. Bob is highly organized and friendly. Bob lives to camp and travel with his wife Cathy to different places in the Northwest in their RV. Bob is an avid woodworker capable of amazing things in his home wood shop. Ask him about it!

 

Perry's title is Concierge. He handles customer communication before and after the appointment. Perry also participates in managing the schedule and other customer service work such as pick up and delivery of customers and their vehicles. Perry is our go-to when something needs to be done for a customer or the shop. Originally from just outside of Philly PA he brings a fresh east coast perspective that has helped me seek to understand our place in the world and the automotive industry. 

Perry is a lifelong learner and seeker of knowledge. No question goes unresearched when it is posed to Perry! He is developing a love of running around the streets and park trails in the Portland area. A connoisseur of fine east coast sandwiches he is in search of a place here that stands up. Perry recently welcomed a rescued dog in to his life as a friend and hopefully running partner!

 

Kevin is our head technician. He joined the team 10 years ago as he was graduating from the automotive program at Portland Community College. Kevin has a great wealth of knowledge and experience that helps him to test and analyze the most complex systems with the highest level of understanding. When we have a tough problem Kevin is usually the resource we leverage to get to the bottom of the issue. He is our most seasoned solution finder, trouble shooter, problem solver. Kevin loves the outdoors. He enjoys four wheeling in his Toyota pick-up and Land Cruiser as well as riding his Honda dirt bike as often as possible. Kevin is a husband to Julie. They have a daughter, Charlotte and are expecting a new little one in January!  

 

Katie also came to us through the automotive program at Portland Community College. She has been part of the team for 6 years now. Her most special skill is her awareness of what is going on in the shop and with customers vehicles at all times. As a technician she does it all! With a thirst for knowledge she tackles new challenges with a positive attitude that fills the shop. Katie shares her house with a couple of kitties. She loves to travel, particularly the Oregon and Washington coast. When the soccer World Cup is on you can stop by and see passion in action!

 

The newest member of our team, Jed has been in the industry for a few years. His can-do attitude and strong desire to gain knowledge and experience make him a great asset. Jed possesses the ability to find a way to get it done. Think outside the box and find a solution. These traits are indefatigable and infinitely valuable when you service and repair automobiles. Jed loves animals and the outdoors. A new puppy named Gauge has just joined his family.

 

Pat is our class clown and the team member that keeps us on our toes. He makes sure that we don't slack off during work and reminds us to "Behave"! Pat helps keep the office organized as well. It's a pleasure to work with Pat and it's fun to tease and play.
