Hi, I’m Danny Hillow. My passion in the automotive industry began when I was just 8 years old. It was the day when my dad took me for a ride in his 2002 Chevy Corvette that had loud exhaust, t tops, tinted windows and an amazing sound system. Ever since that day, I knew that I had an addiction for speed. My dad helped me to get my hands dirty and taught me how to tear automotive parts and put them back together.
Years later, I started taking automotive classes while I was still in high school. However, that wasn’t enough for me, so I continued to look for opportunities to further my education. I was lucky to get a $10,000 scholarship from Ohio Technical College where I graduated among the top 5 students with an Associate Degree in Automotive and Diesel.
After graduation, I started my career working as a technician for school buses. My potential was soon discovered by my manager, which led to my promotion to management. Although, I had just finished college, I still felt confident in my new role.
As a manager, I started off with managing 60 buses and 3 technicians. Today, only a couple of years later, I manage 300 buses and 10 technicians. My managerial role has taught me so much about this field and has turned me into a great leader. I enjoy working with my team as we solve the problems of the automotive industry together.
Through this blog, I’m excited to share all my knowledge and experience in the Automotive and Diesel industry. My posts won’t just be about the things that I like in this industry, but also about the things that I don’t like. I hope you’ll enjoy reading this blog and will share it with others who are also interested in this field. Have a great day!
