From Local Transmission Shop to Full-Service Auto Repair Shop Serving All of San Jose
When Jim started at Leale's, working alongside his dad, he spent his time cleaning the shop, and then went on to work on cars and help the auto repair technicians. Eventually, he was building transmissions and managing the shop before his dad retired in 1995 and sold the business to him. Quickly, Jim realized he needed to understand how to run the shop, in addition to knowing how to repair vehicles, so he began training in business management, which he continues to pursue with the goal of running an efficient auto repair shop. Jim is driven to find solutions and creating an environment that makes that possible.
