Meet the Staff at Standard Auto Care in Sacramento:

Tom: Service and operations manager: Prior to managing a repair business 25 years ago I started out as a smog technician focusing on computer diagnostics. My skill sets were better suited to management and customer service and as we grew I quickly moved into the office. My technical background helps immensely to strategize how to accomplish more complex repairs and mange technicians capable of doing those repairs.  I'm passionate about helping our customers to have a relaxed and smooth repair experience. Helping people has always been very important to me.
