MEET OUR TEAM LEADERS
They are the backbone of Davis Car Care and Tire Center, and they're here to help ensure your experience as Davis Car Care is a great one!
KYLE DAVIS | OWNER
First Car: A 1984 rusty orange Toyota Camry with spray-painted blue wheels. I worked overtime at McDonald's when I was 15 to save up the $800 for it.
Ever since he was six years old, Kyle Davis knew he wanted to run his own business. He went from selling soaps to his grandmother and bargaining old comic books on the bus, to operating a neighborhood lawn care business. As a high school senior, he spent his summer working in the "pit" at an automotive shop. Despite the dirty uniform and frequent burns from hot oil and exhaust pipes, Kyle was hooked on a career in automotive repair.
After serving as a Navy Boatswain Mate, Kyle worked for eight years as an automotive technician. He is a certified Virginia State Inspector and has four ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certifications.
"I believe one of the biggest benefits we bring to our customers is attention to detail. I always stress to my employees that any shop can fix cars, but we focus on providing excellence in even the little things. From the way we communicate with customers to how we take that extra step and top off your washer fluid, we 100% strive to exceed the expectations of every customer. More importantly, we take any complaint seriously and go out of our way to make things right. We firmly believe that excellent communication is key to the customer experience."
JOANNE JANTTI | GENERAL MANAGER
First Car: A red '82 Dodge Charger. I didn't have a license at the time, so the dealer let me drive over 600 miles to obtain my birth certificate and get my license.
Joanne Jantti is the General Manager at Davis Car Care in Virginia Beach. Having spent a lot of time around mechanics, Joanne understood the challenges and diversity of the automotive industry before she even joined the field. She has a diverse background in customer service and sales, and she embraces Davis Car Care's commitment to provide excellent service to each and every customer.
"What I love most about this job is getting to build friendships with the customers, addressing their concerns, and doing my part to keep them safe on the road. Davis Car Care is not your typical shop; we are a shop that truly cares, which means we will always offer you honesty and a fair price."
