Tim Hollenshade

Tim Sr. and Tim Jr. are fixtures in Hollenshade’s auto repair facility. Tim Sr. started working in the family business in 1972 after graduating from the automotive program at Overley High School. In his early years Tim’s automotive experience was focused on maintenance services as well as steering and suspension repairs. As the years went by Tim Sr. helped the small business’s number of automotive repair specialties grow from maintenance services to major repairs.

Similarly to how his father introduced him to the business, Tim Sr. helped bring the fourth generation, Tim Jr., into the family’s Towson automobile repair shop. Initially, Tim Jr.’s time was limited to working the summers in between school years. But, after leaving a corporate setting Tim Jr. joined the family business full-time in 2014.  Tim has spent time learning the industry across many functions within the family car repair business. Tim’s automotive experience can be seen both around the shop and inside the front office. Tim Jr. works alongside Hollenshade’s team of experienced technicians in addition to fulfilling the marketing and communications responsibilities for the 80 year old business.
