General Manager of Mahnke Auto Body Arvada

Within Mahnke’s team environment there is a continuous push to streamline processes while integrating sophisticated software, measuring tools, and manufacturer’s constant procedure updates.

He states that attentive listening, along with comprehensive note taking, fosters continuous improvement in all departments of the company. Keeping the promises we make is critical, and follow-through with communications and tasks is essential to the long-term success of the business. Ryan’s goal as General Manager is; “To empower everyone to make the right decision, to move forward with the repair.” He feels well suited for the job, including the aspects of coaching and facilitating personal growth. Ryan says, “I love what I do,” and is determined to provide his team with the tools and motivation to do things correctly and expertly. “All repairs are problem solving opportunities where everyone can learn.
