My name is Craig Olvey and I’ve been in the automotive service industry for 21 years. I have a lovely wife and two wonderful young boys that keep me busy! I’m a total gearhead and love anything with an engine! In the summer I enjoy boating with my family. In the winter you can find me somewhere outside in the snow either skiing or snowmobiling. The thing I like most about the automotive service industry is having the opportunity to help people on a daily basis
