Johnny

Service Technician

Hello, my name is Jonathan Harger and I’m a general service technician. Although I’m relatively new to the industry, I understand the complexities automobiles possess and the importance of proper maintenance and inspection. It is my duty to properly inspect and service each vehicle that comes into the shop. I’m proud to say that the systems and processes we have in place at the shop provide crystal clear communications about service issues we discover during inspection which in turn provides the front office with the information necessary to properly inform the customer about his or her vehicle needs.

In my spare time, I enjoy photography, videography and outdoor firearm activities.

Owner - ASE Master Certified Automobile Technician

My name is Scott Brown, co-owner of Connie & Dick’s. I came to work for Connie & Dick in 1990 and began ownership in 1993. I am an ASE Master Certified Automobile Technician with over three and a half decades of professional service industry experience. I specialize in engine performance and diagnostics. I am also an instructor and have presented for fellow industry professionals all over the world. Currently, I am engaged with providing hands-on instruction for service professionals engaged in servicing vehicles equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping functions, and other advanced features. If you’re a consumer interested in learning more about these systems I am interested in conducting a clinic on some of these features. For more insight on ADAS, please consider checking out this video. Please reach out and let us know if you’d be interested in attending a clinic on these advanced vehicle systems.

In the early 90’s I began collaborating with other industry professionals, online through a bulletin board system I started called the Garage BBS.  In 1995 I joined forces with an industry colleague on a venture that became the International Automotive Technicians Network — iATN, where I retired as company president in 2018. I serve on the Board of Directors for NASTF, AMI, ASCCA, and stay well connected through associations such as ASA, Auto Care, CAT, ETI, I-CAR, & SAE.

I am also the founder of the Diagnostic Network which launched in 2018: https://diag.net.

Oscar

Oscar

Service Manager

Hello, my name is Oscar Barroso and I am the Service Manager at Connie & Dick’s. I have been in the automotive service industry for over 10 years following a military career with the U.S. Marines. I value the importance of being a part of something greater than myself, which is why I believe in helping Connie and Dick’s Service Center reach our community to offer our professional services and grow, nurture, and maintain lifelong customer relationships. I work to provide a professional, world-class customer experience that focuses on prolonging the life of the vehicle instead of just applying a patch or a temporary. The automobile is a complex machine and we take deep pride in the fact that we have the skill and expertise on site to provide long lasting solutions for our clients.

In my free time I enjoy working on my motorcycle, outdoor firearm activities, and spending time with my family. When I’m not physically active I also enjoy drawing still life.
