Name: Nam Ngo
Position: Co-owner and operator of NV Auto
Job description: I manage the automotive service side of my business, performing a lot of the servicing and repairs, and building race cars.
How did you come to be in this job?
After working several years for an automotive dealership and a performance racing shop, I opened my own business seven years ago. I hired an office manager (now my business partner) to care for the customers while I focused on the actual repairs. As the business grew, we hired three more staff: a technician, an office manager, and then a senior technician who had actually taught me when I was an apprentice. We now have five full-time employees, and I am hoping to hire two more in the new year.
