Service Manager

MASTER CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN FOR 25 YEARS!

"With great pride I must share a couple of shout outs to our Service Director of Piedmont Honda, Mr. Gary Vinson, once again achieved the level of Honda Master Technician Certification.  Not only is this a very stringent and laboring accomplishment that requires a person to be re certified off site for a week of testing every 5 years, but Gary has maintained this premier designation consistently over the past 25 years.  Want to hear more…?  Several years ago Gary took over management of our service department, this should have ended any effort of him keeping up with the advanced technology Honda puts forth every year, instead and on top of all his managerial responsibilities, Gary feels the success and culture he has created is due to him making certain that he mentors, educates and instructs all young apprentices he brings in by showing and doing instead of barking and biting, this is what sets Gary and Piedmont Honda apart from all others. Congratulations Gary!
