Paul joined the Acme team in September 2013. An accomplished collision technician, Paul learned the trade in vocational school in Andover, Massachusetts and has been at it full time in one manner or another since 1976. From washing and prepping vehicles, to stints in collision repair shops and dealerships, to running his own operation, Paul has done it all and so you can be assured he brings a high level of expertise to the work on your vehicle. With years of I-Car training under his belt, Paul still appreciates the challenge of learning new skills and approaches to repairs. As he says, the cars continually change and just when you think you have seen everything, you see something new and are pushed to upgrade your knowledge and skills. When not working on your vehicle, Paul is waterskiing with his family and buddies… serious stuff folks! He competes! He’ll even ski before going to work in the morning – in the summertime of course!
