Women have been making history in the automotive industry long before Christian Brothers Automotive launched, but since we set down roots in 1982, women have played a key role in accelerating our growth. From the corporate office to our franchise locations, we celebrate all the professionals making a difference – in any industry – throughout Women’s History Month and the rest of the year.
Even in trying times, Christian Brothers Automotive reflects on the positives... like the wonderful things our franchisees do for their communities each day. For example, franchisee Tammie Green, is a believer in community outreach and in teaching teens safe driving practices. Such an all-around, values-driven outlook fits right in with our “Nice Difference” approach.
Additionally, franchisee Jonita White says people are pleasantly surprised when they see a woman driving the business, but that gives her an edge, she adds. Her Frisco, Texas location thrives under Jonita’s ownership. The key, Jonita says, is to work with the right people who complement your skillset. Having had prior experience in facilities management for a healthcare system, Jonita understood what it takes to bring out the best in people. The faith-based Christian Brothers Automotive was the right fit for her and her husband after they moved to Texas from California to be closer to family.
Finally, franchisee Amy Stehr is a firm believer in leading by example at her two Christian Brothers shops in Rockwall and Forney, Texas. Initially, Amy was planning to be in charge of the Rockwall location only until her husband, Mark, was available to take it on. However, she loved the job so much that she now works the cruise control at Rockwall while Mark runs the Forney location.
Women like Amy, Tammie and Jonita at Christian Brothers Automotive are firmly in the driver’s seat. They continue to steer us in the right direction — with plenty of compassion and wise counsel. Christian Brothers Automotive is here for you now, and we'll be here when you're ready. Reach out to us to learn more about the Christian Brother Automotive franchise opportunity.
