President, Sil's Auto Care Centre
“Warren Buffett once wisely stated, ‘It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.’ Bearing this wisdom in mind, our commitment as a team leader in the auto repair industry is to consistently enhance the customer experience through unwavering dedication to quality workmanship and meticulous attention to detail. By providing nothing short of exceptional service, we not only safeguard our hard-earned reputation but also perpetually fortify it.
My journey within the family business commenced in the early 1980s, where I immersed myself in the responsibilities of the enterprise. Starting with humble tasks like fueling vehicles for the Clarkson locals, I progressively ventured into more complex roles, assisting with tire repairs, supporting auto mechanics, and ensuring the overall tidiness of the establishment.
Upon my graduation from St. Paul Secondary School, I pursued higher education at Ryerson University, where I honed my skills in Marketing and Management. Subsequently, in 1994, I made the full-time commitment to join the family business, thereby channeling my educational background and passion into our enterprise. In 2004, I proudly completed the Automotive Power Technician Program at Mohawk College, further bolstering my expertise in the automotive industry.
The mantle of ownership for Sil’s Complete Auto Centre was officially passed to me in 2009. As the steward of our legacy, I am excited about the promising future and continued success of our company. In 2013, we embarked on a significant journey by relocating to our current facility, a move that has unequivocally contributed to our thriving progress and ongoing prosperity.”
