Jimmy Dingess is the new owner of North Fulton Auto Center. Jimmy began his automotive career in 1971 washing cars for a used car lot in East Point, Georgia, which was owned by his brothers-in-law, Bob and Robert. His hard work paid off when he was old enough to begin to drive. He made enough money to purchase his first car – a 1966 Ford Falcon.
Jimmy’s career advanced when Bob opened a Texaco Station in East Point, Georgia. He worked there through high school. By the time the late 1970′s came around, he worked for Robert at a Uniroyal Tire Store in downtown Atlanta performing tire and suspension work.
In 1979, Jimmy had acquired enough service experience to be hired at the largest Mercedes-Benz dealership of the southeast, RBM of Atlanta, a Mercedes-Benz Dealer in Buckhead. After 6 years as a System Technician, he moved to an independent shop called MB Medics in Smyrna, Georgia where he continued as a System Technician for another 5 years.
In 1991, Jimmy returned to RBM of Atlanta as a System Technician. In 1994, he was voted technician of the year by his peers. He was promoted to a Shop Foreman position in 1995. As a Shop Foreman, Jimmy learned the business aspects of running a major service center for Mercedes-Benz. After several years and changes in RBM’s business philosophies, Jimmy decided to sharpen his technical abilities, in 2008, as a System Technician until the time was right to buy his own facility.
Jimmy’s career and educational experience has prepared him to fulfill his dream of owning an automotive repair shop. Jimmy purchased North Fulton Auto Center in February of 2010 from Les Hersey who was retiring. Les had been in business since 1989 and felt Jimmy would be the perfect person to continue his long standing tradition of great customer service. Jimmy and his wife, Marcia, run the business and provide a positive environment for auto repair.
