Bob Thompson – Owner and Master Technician
Thompson Automotive’s namesake! Bob’s affinity for cars began at the age of ten, when he was given a model car to build from a heap of parts. This first encounter with basic automotive anatomy ignited a passion in Bob that is still expressed today in the excellent service he provides for our customers.
Leveraging his training as an Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) Avionics Technician in the Marines in the 1990’s, Bob got his start in automotive servicing and repair after moving back to Colorado to build and modify race engines for high-performance vehicles. After proving himself as an adept mechanic, Bob obtained his ASE Master Technician Certification – the gold standard in automotive repair.
Given his broad experience working on thousands of vehicles throughout his career, Bob is comfortable working on domestic vehicles while specializing in Japanese imports like Subaru, Toyota, and Mitsubishi.
Chris Hoffman – Automotive Technician
Like Bob, Chris knew at a young age that he wanted to work on cars. In high school, Chris took advantage of an opportunity to learn the trade of automotive service and repair through a course offered at Front Range Community College.
His hard work and talent paid off, and it wasn’t long before Chris obtained an automotive industry certification at Lincoln Technical Institute in Denver. After joining the Thompson Automotive team in 2012, Chris demonstrated the expertise and critical thinking skills necessary to become a master-level automotive technician. To make it official, in September 2015, Chris earned his ASE Certification.
Chris has become an integral member of the Thompson Automotive team. He works hard every day expertly evaluating every possible performance and safety issue to get our customers’ vehicles serviced, repaired, and back on the road.
Jaime Thompson – Owner and Service Adviser
Jaime discovered her natural knack for customer service when she began working at a small, family-owned restaurant in Littleton when she was just 15 years old. Through hard work and a love for helping people, Jaime grew beyond her position of hostess all the way through to General Manager, where she honed her multitasking and operations management skills.
After leaving the restaurant, Jaime began her career as a Service Advisor at her father’s repair shop. There, the universe would conspire to have Jaime meet Bob, and a mutual love for business, cars, and helping others was born. In 2010, this partnership became the genesis of Thompson Automotive, a comprehensive automotive service and repair shop meeting the needs of customers in the Englewood and surrounding areas.
