Mike Glosser – Founder / Automotive Repair Specialist / Service advisor
Mike’s experience in the auto repair business started over 30 years ago, just after he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Psychology. He then moved to the West Coast and boldly decided to follow his passion for cars by enrolling in the East Los Angeles Skill Center, earning a diploma in Brakes and Front Ends. True!! his first job was with the Sears Store in Hollywood, California. Since then he has worked in all phases of the automotive industry, including tire stores, many new car dealerships (Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Chrysler, Mazda), and many independent shops. Mike was one of the earliest Bosch trained fuel injection specialists in the U.S. His automotive skills are very broad, and he have been an A.S.E. Master Technician for over 20 years.
A word from Mike:
“I believe a skilled independent shop is where the customer will get the best bang for the buck in car repair, not to mention the personal touch. That is why my wife and I decided to start our own auto repair shop in Everett in 1994. Our goals are to provide you with the highest level of service and customer satisfaction by fixing your car right the first time, at a reasonable price, and backing it up with an unmatched warranty. Give us a try and you will soon be among our family of satisfied customers!”

Lance grew up in Snohomish, Wa and graduated from Snohomish High School in 1989. After High School Lance attended Wyoming Technical institute, and graduated with a degree in diesel technology. He worked at a few auto repair facilities while in high school, but once he graduated Wyoming Tech he went into the heavy truck repair field. Lance worked as a heavy truck mechanic for 5 years ,but then slowly worked his way into the automotive field. Working in the automotive field proved more interesting to Lance so he quickly started learning as much as possible to catch up. He has had two of his own automotive businesses for short periods, but learned it is hard to stay afloat in the fast growing technology these days as a one person shop. Lance joined GP Automotive in 2005 and loves it here. Lance has been a ASE Master Automotive technician for over 10 years. Sometimes you may also see Lance at the front counter filling in as service adviser when needed.
