Our Leadership Team
Owner – President
Where has the time gone? I began my career at Enginetech in 1989 as an Inside Salesman, then went through a progression of jobs until becoming General Manager in 1998, and a co-owner of the biz in 2000 with my mentor and partner Fred Currey.
I pride myself on having really smart people around me – all very passionate about pleasing our customers. It’s what has permitted our company to weather the economic storms of the past few years – vibrant, robust, and aggressive, ready to reap even more rewards in the future.
I’ve been married for 23 years with two unbelievably great kids. I have three main passions outside of Enginetech – music, (I play bass in both a Beatles and an REM tribute band), muscle cars, and railroads. I am one incredibly lucky guy.
Owner – Vice-President
Internal engine parts have been a part of my life since my husband, Joe, began his journey with Enginetech, Inc. in 1989. After seeing what a solid, progressive company Enginetech was, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I joined the team in 1998 and have been involved in many different aspects of the business.
Co-ownership since 2000 has allowed me much more than just a job and I’m extremely lucky to have worked with some of the brightest and most creative “in the biz” over the years.
Enginetech started out as “the industry’s best kept secret”, but our crew and our customers continue to grow, change and amaze me. Our company has developed into a force to be reckoned with!
When I am not working, I love to hang out and travel with my husband and three kids – exploring craft cocktails and good food along the way! I enjoy music, hiking, photography, reading, yoga/meditation and watching movies.
Team Leader of Process Improvement
I have worked for Enginetech, Inc. in various capacities for several years. Prior to joining the Enginetech team, I worked for Allied Signal as the quality manager, overseeing the Dallas and Houston R&O facilities.
I went to schools in Arkansas & Texas. I am also a veteran of the US Army, having spent my enlistment with the 101st Airborne Division. I live in Ft. Worth with my lovely wife and our dogs Lucy, Bodhi, and Juno.
I am an avid reader, spending a great deal of time looking for old books. My current restoration project is a 1967 Sunbeam Alpine.
Team Leader of Purchasing
I joined the Enginetech Team in 1999. Enginetech is a remarkable place to work surrounded by enthusiastic people solving customer needs and we share a passion for the automobile.
My wife and I enjoy spending time together at home with all of our animals.
On the weekends I enjoy fishing, every chance I get, and classic cars. Both of these hobbies result in good stories among friends.
Team Leader of Finance
After receiving my accounting degree from Auburn University (War Eagle!) and my CPA, I began my career auditing financial statements and preparing tax returns for a CPA firm in Montgomery, AL. After way too many tax seasons, and two kids who demanded more time, I switched gears and went to work for a bank headquartered in Alabama.
My husband, John, was transferred to Dallas in 1999 and I continued to work in banking until I was given a wonderful opportunity to become part of the Enginetech team in May 2002. I am a huge sports fan, all kinds including NASCAR (go #99), and an avid runner.
Team Leader of Operations
I was born in Brooklyn, New York but moved to Carrollton, Texas in 1974 where I have since lived. I started my auto parts career by working alongside my brother Joe in a retail store from 1985 until 1989. I then decided to accept a job with Delta Air Lines where I remained for 15 years until downsizing forced me out and it was then that I accepted Joe’s offer to come work at Enginetech in 2004.
I began in Engineering by doing receiving inspections and working with our customers on technical and warranty issues before being asked to take over the product packaging department in 2006 where I was named Enginetech Teammate of the Year in 2007 for my efforts.
In 2012 I was once again asked to try something new and was named Global Sourcing Manager where I helped to locate new vendors and sources to increase our global footprint in the industry.
My most recent challenge is being named Team Leader of Operations where I am responsible for the daily operations of the distribution center as well as finding new ways to improve our efficiency and customer service.
I have been married since 1990 to my wife Kellie and blessed with a daughter and twin boys who keep us busy. I enjoy cars, music, books and traveling as well as a being a long time suffering fan of the Texas Rangers.
Team Leader of Engineering
I grew up in a small West Texas town near Abilene called Roscoe. My dad would fix up old clunkers and race them at the dirt track in Abilene when I was a kid, so I developed a love for cars at a young age. (Getting caked from the flying mud in the bleachers as the cars raced by had me hooked from the start.)
I originally moved to the Dallas area in 2002, but later moved away to attend college. I graduated with a master’s degree from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM in May of 2013.
I’m glad to be back home in Texas and I am very excited to be part of the Enginetech Team. I have a beautiful little girl that has me wrapped around her finger. In our free time, we enjoy traveling and getting out to experience the world. My other interests include sports, fishing, and learning about other cultures, and language.
Team Leader of Sales
I was born and raised in Dallas. I attended Northwood University in Cedar Hill, Texas, where I majored in Automotive Aftermarket Management while excelling in Cross-Country and Track.
Prior to Enginetech, I honed my career at Star Automotive and then to the retail side with Auto Zone and Pep Boys.
In my spare time I enjoy sports (soccer) and spending time with my beautiful wife Hilda and our kids, Karizma, Akai, Hector and Gianna. Big movie junkie and love Texas BBQ!!
