Matt Rivest



Matt came to us shy of 10 years ago with a strong history of customer service and business management. He quickly worked his way up to the role as Service Manager.

His empathetic nature, attention to detail, and natural ability to lead others make him a perfect fit for this position which eventually evolved into Matt taking an Ownership role in Precision Auto at the beginning of 2023.

In his personal time he enjoys spending time with his wife, 2 children, and dog "Winston".

James Stephenson

James started his career in the automotive field at the age of 14 by working at a local gas station. He quickly excelled and by the age of 18 became a Fully Certified Master Technician. At the age of 22 he opened Precision Auto Repair (for more information see About Us).


After well over 25 years in the automotive industry James still maintains his Master Certification, has received local and national recognition for Auto Repair Excellence, has a hit Podcast "Boys Under The Hood", works as a Business Development Coach for Independent Auto Repair Shops all over the country, and has the same passion to help people as he did when he started in the industry.

In his spare time James enjoys spending time with his wife and family, while staying active.
