Ken Schartel, Jr. – Business Manager
Growing up around cars and constantly seeing the inner working under the hood, turning a wrench came naturally. Though life wasn’t always destined to follow in his father’s footsteps, the knack for tinkering never left. Starting off working at Firehouse Subs gaining traction in management, the time came when he moved on to turning a wrench. Starting off in the trenches, mastering brakes all the way up to engine swaps. We all have to get our hands dirty. Deciding that finishing college was a goal worth completing. Graduating from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and working in airport management at Orlando Sanford International Airport for a number of years. While life changes so did the path that Kenny was taking, eventually finding his way back to Affordable Automotive.
During this time roles were changed and a new life brought into Affordable Automotive. Taking lessons from previous experience and new guidance for the future. Looking to take Affordable Automotive to the next 25 years and beyond.
