DAVE & REBECCA BOOY
Dave & Rebecca both had fathers than ran their own auto repair businesses in the Woodstock area, and both were raised working in the family businesses. Dave went on to study business and eventually achieved his MBA while Becca completed studies to become a fully qualified teacher. They moved up to Owen Sound and acquired this business in 2013 and are thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to raise their family in such a beautiful area. Together, with their 6 children, Dave & Becca enjoy camping, hiking and hitting the trails on snowmobiles and atvs.
Joining our team in 2014, Jackie has worked her way to a management position here at Booy’s Action Auto. She oversees our day-to-day operations and has done an excellent job building relationships with our clientele. One look at our reviews and you will see how her ability to meet & exceed the expectations of our clients is second-to-none. Cruising on her motorcycle is where you will find Jackie when she is not at work. Jackie loves taking trips with friends, family or even if its just to get to work - she loves spending time on that bike!
You would never guess that Janet joined our team with no experience in the automotive business. Her many years in retail and customer service have enabled Janet to launch into this business as a full-fledged serviced advisor in less than a year. Janet is extremely organized, very pleasant, and absolutely excellent at ensuring our clients have a fantastic experience here. When she’s not at work, you can find her enjoying a bonfire with her husband and spending time with her daughter.
Steve is the most recent addition to our team, but he brings the widest wealth of experience and knowledge of the auto repair industry. Earlier in his career, Steve started out as a licensed tech and successfully succeeded his father’s auto repair business. As the owner of a successful business for many years, Steve has earned the reputation for being an honest and hardworking individual who people have come to trust completely for all their automotive repair needs. When he’s not at work, you might find Steve enjoying traveling with his wife or winding down the highway on his motorcycle.
Alex joined our team in the summer of 2017 and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team. Alex has worked for new car dealerships, franchise chains, and strong independent garages just like us. He’s very well versed with all makes and models and is a true pleasure to work with. Even during some of the toughest jobs on the hottest days of summer, Alex has a smile on his face and always finds a way to fix anything he is faced with. Alex and his wife moved here from Cambridge and are enjoying the lifestyle of Grey Bruce.
Nathan returned to Owen Sound after living in London, and he joined our team in 2014. Nathan is a very bright tech and one of the few that successfully challenged the final exam and passed! He takes pride in conquering the more challenging jobs and has an unparalleled passion for the industry. Whether he's diagnosing a difficult electrical problem or changing a set of tires, Nathan's quality workmanship never waivers and his pride for a job well done is very evident. When he is away from work, Nathan enjoys golfing: either with a disc or with a club... and he's golfed in weather some of us wouldn't want to drive in!
Pat joined our team in the summer of 2017 and is our newest licensed tech. After working in the dealership setting for most of his apprenticeship, Pat has found it to be much more enjoyable to work on all sorts of different makes & models. He brings a fantastic attitude to work and you will never find him standing idle. He loves to keep busy and whether he is deep into a major overhaul or cleaning up after a job, Pat will be found with a smile on his face and eager for the next challenge. When he’s not working on cars here, you will find Pat working on his race car. Building this car from scratch, Pat has successfully made a name for himself at Varney with the support of his wife and his new daughter.
Shadow joined our team in the fall of 2017 and is in his final year of his apprenticeship. While he looks forward to becoming a licensed technician, there really isn’t much that Shadow can’t handle. With a particular passion for performance and accessories, Shadow is skilled in all aspects of this trade and is a valuable part of our team. As a new father, sleep is rare… so you might find him building his dream truck at home when he’s not at work.
Taylor Munn (aka Subaru nut), joined our team in the spring of 2017. He has an unwavering passion for this trade and, although he just started his 1st year of apprenticeship, his capabilities in the shop are extremely impressive. Taylor brings a great sense of humour to the team and when he’s not at work you will find him tinkering away on his Subaru.
