Our Sales Pros
Miguel “Magoo” Gaona
Export Sales and New Accounts Manager
I began my career with Enginetech in 2008 and it has been a very good experience! My favorite part about working for Enginetech is the relationships I have built in a short time span.
I attended Lincoln Tech right after high school. During my 2 year training, I worked for AutoZone. I then worked as a mechanic for Dallas Auto Auction for about 1 year. Most of my time is spent with my lovely wife and 2 wonderful daughters! My other interests are playing soccer, working on my truck, racing and/or watching the races and visiting my family.
High Performance Sales Expert
I was born in Mesquite, Texas but spent all my weekends and summers on my grandparent’s farm in east Texas where I learned a sense of accomplishment through hard work. As I got older, I got in to cars and restored a 70′ Ford Mustang Mach One.
After graduating high school, I decided I wanted to see the world so joined the Army. Once I came home from my military service I worked as an ASE Certified Master Tech for Pepboy’s and later at Oreilly Auto Parts as a Retail Service Specialist while I went back to school where I got a degree in civil drafting. After a few years of drafting the construction industry hit hard times. I went back to what I know best, the auto industry, and worked at Oreilly Auto Parts as a member of the management team for several different stores for the past seven years.
I joined the Enginetech team in 2016 where I come to work everyday eager to take care of our customers with all the skills and knowledge I have acquired through the years.
At home I am a proud father to my children James and Lilly, and married to the love of my life Victoria. We love traveling, fishing, and shooting sports as a family. I’m also a giant Oklahoma Sooners fan. “BOOMER SOONER”..
I was born and raised in California soon moving to Louisiana where I graduated high school. From there I joined the Navy where I toured twice in Iraq then settled in Texas after 7 years of service.
I immediately joined and ran the commercial department for O’Reilly’s Auto Parts for 10 years. Still eager to move up in the ranks, I have finally settled in with my new family at Enginetech.
Having been with Enginetech since 2013, I have grown to love not only my customers but my great team of experts as well.
In my spare time, I enjoy everything there is to be done outdoors as well as MMA. I am happily engaged to my beautiful fiancé, Jennifer, who works in the accounting department and soon to be wed in a few months. I always look forward to coming to work for this company so that every customer will have the best experience possible each and every time they call.
I was born and raised in Mission,TX and moved to Arlington, TX in 2002.
Since I was 10-years-old, I have been going to race tracks. My grandfather and uncles have helped me build a solid foundation in the automotive field. From an early age, I have been working with and racing different generations of Camaros and TransAms. The engine sizes range from big blocks to small blocks with specialization in LS series.
When I relocated to the DFW area, I met some great people who love drag racing. In 2006, I moved to Mooresville, NC to attend NASCAR Technical Institute and pit crew school and graduated from there in 2009. I have worked throughout the years with different race teams and have over 10 years of experience working with automotive parts.
I enjoy spending time with my son, Ryder and cooking on the grill with my wife, Niki. We have fun going to Ennis,TX to watch drag racing and also like hiking, biking, camping and other outdoor activities.
