In April 2015, Guy Lagace, a sales person by trade and an entrepreneur at heart, started 4MY AUTO, The Auto Care Centre, with one licensed mechanic and one versatile partner in Daniel Larose, who also happens to be Guy’s childhood best friend.
In less than a year, the 4MY AUTO team doubled in size and has become your east of Ottawa destination for all of your vehicle's needs.
Meet our team of experts who strive to keep you safe and happy!
GUY LAGACE, President & CEO
A successful sales manager in the corporate world for over twenty years, Guy had frequently dreamed about being his own boss. Yes, this may sound like a cliché storyline, but with loads of perseverance, a true passion for everything that is cars and taking certain risks, Guy transformed his dream into a flourishing reality. When he isn’t behind the shop counter greeting customers, you can find him getting pampered at a spa or jumping around at Sky Zone with his two little girls.
DANIEL LAROSE, Vice-President of Sales
With over twenty years of customer service in restauration, Dan is applying his customer-centric experience in an industry that he is passionate for but in which customer satisfaction is stereotypically an afterthought. Not with Dan though! No matter what, the customer's needs always come first with this VP of Sales! Guy sometimes jokes that Dan is borderline OCD… but his acute organizational skills are a big part of what keeps the shop in order and operating efficiently.
MIKE BOULET, Technical Advisor & Licensed Mechanic
You can say that being part of the car industry was inevitable for Mike: his parents owned a Canadian Tire where he began working in the parts department at the age of 18. Fast forward to today, Mike is now a licensed mechanic with ten years in the industry. He has a love for diagnostics and ensures that he is ahead of the game by keeping himself continuously informed about the newest technology. He also has a real love for his Lucky Charms!
ALEX SERABIAN, Licensed Mechanic
Alex has been in the trade for twelve years, three years licensed. Although born in our rival hockey city of Toronto, Alex is a devoted Sens fan who would choose going to watch his team play over (almost) anything! Want to put a smile on this rather reserved fellow? Then bring him a double double next time you come by!
ERIC PAQUETTE, Head Auto Detailer
Eric has always had a deep love and appreciation for cars. This led him to starting and running his own detailing company for three years prior to joining the 4MY AUTO team. With five years of buffing and detailing experience, it is tough to throw him off his game… unless you sneak up on him. He gets in a focused cleaning zone by humming while he cleans cars, but catch him by surprise, and he will
get scared and jump!
KOLE GREGOIRE, Auto Detailer
Meet our youngest but most enthusiastic member of the team, Kole! Kole is passionate about cars and has a genuine excitement for each of his cleaning projects. His dream has always been to become a mechanic and he has recently joined the Auto Technician Apprenticeship program to realize this goal. He proudly vows that “4MY AUTO is my life!”
MARK RICHARDS, Auto Glass & Trim Installer
He may be a veteran in his field, but Mark is the newest addition to the team! He brings with him twenty years of valuable experience in the glass industry. When not fixing your windshield, his four kids and his commitment to dog rescue is what keeps this New Brunswick native busy.
