PAUL T – Technician


Paul hails from Florida, but he likes the cold weather and snow. We are very glad he came to Merrill, he is a prized team member, always ready to jump in and help others. Paul has been fixing cars for a long time, he is a great technician. Paul has a good understanding of technology and advancements coming to the automotive repair industry. We find the most difficult and technical training sessions for Paul to attend. Even on days off Paul finds himself busy, working on his house or helping family members. Exploring Colorado and getting to know our great Front Range keeps Paul on the go.
