I’m Jerry White and I have over 37 years experience in the automotive repair industry. While growing up in Charlotte I have worked for some of the best independent shops in the Charlotte area such as Gordon’s auto service, Ken Griffen Auto repair and Kinsey’s transmission and motor service. I started working for the sons of Kirk Brown as an ASE Certified Master Auto Technician in the 80’s.
In 1993 I was ready for the challenge of small business ownership when Haines and Reid Brown were ready to retire. Haines and Reid understood that I would carry on the ethics and business practices that were established by Kirk Brown himself. I have been able to accomplish this by never losing focus on always doing what is in the best interest of the customer. I take personal pride in the quality of work and the professionalism my staff consistently provides our customers.
Health issues have forced me to retire from the day to day routine of running Kirk Brown and Sons. The vision that I share with Kirk Brown of being the experts in automotive service and repair on all makes and models while never compromising integrity continues to be the core of success for our business. I know that Kirk Brown and Sons will continue to be a leader in the automotive industry and a partner to the community with my brother’s 20 plus years of experience and my son’s fresh energy and leadership.

I’m Joey White and I have grown up in and around the automotive business literally all of my life. From an early age my dad, Jerry White, has instilled the importance of leadership, work ethic, pursuit of excellence and customer service. Through achieving my goals of National Honor Society, being the starting quarterback all of my football career, and a varsity starter in basketball all of my of my High School Career has taught me the importance of leadership, teamwork and persistence towards perfection. As I continue my lifelong pursuit of greater education, I am fascinated with the continuing change of automotive technology and understanding how these changes affect the consumer and repair industry. There is nothing I find more satisfying than being a part of the diagnostic process towards solving a customer’s automotive headaches the first time.
Away from work I have many interest in my life. I continue to enjoy playing and watching sports. I am a Panthers and Hornets fan. You can always count on me to go to see live music or head to the Blueridge Mountains for hiking or camping.
