Chuck and Nikki Stasny,Co-Owners
Married for nearly 35 years, Chuck and Nikki purchased AAMCO to fulfill their dream of owning their own business. Together, with skills in automotive repair, management and accounting, Chuck and Nikki have successfully served as AAMCO's leadership since 2001. In 1975, with an associate degree in automotive mechanics, Chuck accepted a position as a mechanic at Dowell, an oil field service company. With a desire to learn more, Chuck advanced in his career and by 2000, he was the Engineering and Manufacturing Manager for HydroChem Industrial Services and oversaw the operations of nearly 60 nationwide company locations. Getting a chance to utilize his business sense and skills in automotive repair motivated Chuck to join the AAMCO family. "I have seen so many auto repair shops," Chuck said. "I wanted a chance to do it better." Active in the community, Chuck serves on the boards of the Houston Tennis Association and Houston Community College's Automotive Technology. The brains behind the business, Nikki oversees AAMCO's bookkeeping, including payroll, income taxes and accounts payable and receivable. "Realizing our dream to own our own business, I took a class at Brazosport Junior College called Record Keeping for a Small Business," Nikki said. "That was many years ago!" Unable to become a business owner at the time, Nikki continued to enroll in courses that accelerated her knowledge of accounting. With new-found skills and the love of numbers, Nikki had no trouble finding employment at local accounting firms until she and her husband purchased AAMCO. When not at AAMCO, Nikki has fun sewing and playing with her two granddaughters, Isabel and Francesca.
