Brian Sump – Never Let Your Foot Off The Pedal [FTR 081]

FTR 081 Brian Sump – Never Let Your Foot Off The Pedal

Multi-shop operator Brian Sump from Avalon Motorsports and Ubran AutoCare brings a whole lot of passion to this episode as he shares some self-reflection on a rocky time he experienced and what he learned. He says that you’ve got to review what works and keep the pedal to the metal. This is a great lesson in making small changes and pay attention to the results.

Brian Sump is not your typical shop owner. A former professional athlete, Sump had never turned a wrench in a shop before starting Denver-based Avalon Motorsports in 2007.  But in the years since, he has used his business acumen and detailed, process-based management philosophy to grow the German-specialty shop into what a number of industry consultants consider to be an industry leader. Brian now has four locations. Listen to Brian’s previous episodes HERE
