Owner, 3A Automotive & Diesel
Jimmy Alauria entered the automotive industry in 2000, working in his father’s shop, Phoenix, Ariz.–based 3A Automotive & Diesel. He was a service writer school instructor for Management Success! from 2006–2008, and a senior seminar speaker for Management Success! from 2008–2012.
After purchasing 3A Automotive & Diesel in 2016, Alauria completed a complete culture overhaul of the shop and was forced to rebuild the entire team comprised of five technicians (two who were 35-year veteran master techs), two service advisors, and both a service and office manager. Alauria now has a new team with a winning culture that has the goal of taking the shop over $2 million in annual sales.
