Brian Putney….. So who is this guy????
Brian grew up in Boiling Springs, PA. His father owned a Sprint Car racing auto repair shop (see some fun pics on our media page). Brian also loved racing and did pretty well on the racing circuit. He knew from a young age that he had a knack for cars and started working in his Dad’s shop when he was 15. He soon outpaced his Dad on the rapidly advancing vehicle technology, and learned he could “talk to cars” with new technology like high end scanners and lab scopes. He soon purchased his Dad’s auto repair shop and business boomed. In 2008, Brian sold the shop and moved to Naples, Florida to acquire more experience working on high end vehicle makes, including Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Maserati, and Ferrari. While he enjoyed this, the mountain called him home and now he enjoys archery season and the SEC once again. He says that while those cars where fun to work on, it is still his pride to work on a customer’s every day driver and get it running perfectly the first time at a competitive price.
Lisa Putney…. The “L” in B&L Automotive
Lisa not only runs the front office and greets everyone with a smile, she also makes runs for parts and answers your phone calls and questions. She grew up in a small Appalachian town in PA, as well. One unique thing you may not know about Lisa is that she has her own business in the same building. She is a small business and tax accountant with a CPA license in PA, FL, and Tennessee. That is how she and Brian met! As for what her hobbies are…sea shelling, photography, repurposing old furniture, remodeling and interior design, and of course a good book on the hammock is always welcome.
