The Team



Lee is tasked with managing the business day to day  keeping the business moving forward  and also our fault finding  diagnostic technician. He  Started working on cars around the age of 8 at weekends and school holidays and was hooked ever since, lee has a thirst for knowledge and is constantly training or studying to stay ahead of the field.  Lee spends his spare time with his family watching super hero films with his boys or being dragged around shops by Lou.

The best part of Lee’s job is being able to pass difficult jobs onto Ryan.


Workshop Technician

Ryan has been a vital member of the A team since he joined in 2012 and has developed into a skilled tech with a keen eye for detail. He takes care of most of the servicing, timing belts and general workshop duties as well as sharing some of the heavy duty jobs with Peter. His experience makes him no1 for repairs on VW, Audi and BMW  (well no 2 if we include Lee), unfortunately Ryan cant make tea so we gave up asking him, his hobbies include spending time with his young family, playing poker with his friends and listening to some really strange music, he says the best thing about his job is working with lee and would probably do it for free.


Reception and social media

Lou is the A Teams multi media guru. She runs all our social media and website, including advertising and the marketing business.

Outside of Autotec, Lou is a mother to a feisty 6 year old, Luke, a step son Oscar and a tiny miniature dachshund Cleo!
Lou also has a degree in Counselling and psychotherapy which she says she needs living with Lee. She enjoys days off spending time with the family and dragging Lee around the shops, also bossing him around doing the odd jobs at home.



Peter started the business in 1986 working from a small workshop in the town carrying out service and repair work, he’s seen the cars change over the years from the days he was replacing points and adjusting carburettors to the electronics and control units on modern cars and now hybrid and electric vehicles.

Peter is the heavy artillery of the A team often tasked with such jobs of replacing BMW x5 engines or a rebuild on a V10 Audi as well as routine service repairs and Mots.
Peter’s is also the reason we have a clean and tidy workshop often found cracking the whip if oil isn’t cleaned up or equipment put away.

Outside of Autotec Northwest Peter enjoys keeping Koi and tropical fish and maintaining his pond.



Marie is our receptionist and is definitely the warm heart of the A Team.

As Peters wife she’s always there to keep him in check and as Lees mum she’s always there running after him with a plaster and making sure he’s got his coat on when he goes outside …

Marie manages the day to day of the A Team and is always on hand to make a nice brew! She greets all our customers with a warm smile and friendly face

Outside of Autotec Northwest, Marie is a loving mother to Lee and Danielle and grandmother to 4 grand-kids and loves spending time with her family.
