In the 1990s Brian Katsorelos began working in the auto repair industry at the Harrisonburg Auto Auction. From an entry-level position, he worked his way into a job as an estimator and then as the manager in the auto body shop. Brian had a vision to open his own body shop and after locating the current facility, Brian opened Premier Auto Body for business in November 1999.
Brian fixed and painted the cars himself, working with every aspect of a car’s repair. He built his reputation on the high quality of his repairs and his dedication to customer satisfaction. In a few years, he hired his first two employees.
In 2005, the steady expansion of the business called for a second building, which was erected to accommodate a stand-alone paint facility. Brian hired a full-time painter.
By 2010, Premier had grown to the right size for Brian’s wife, Tammy, to leave her job with the Rockingham County government and step in to manage the office staff and serve as bookkeeper.
In Spring of 2012, Premier proudly expanded into their current state-of-the-art facility, conveniently at the same location Brian began the business in 1999. This facility houses all aspects of repair and maintenance of a vehicle as well as a rental car fleet.
Currently, Premier Auto Body has 16 employees with Brian and Tammy in the shop every day. We look forward to continuing the privilege of serving the Rockingham-Harrisonburg area’s collision auto repair needs.
