Boswell started with FullSpeed in 2021 as vice president of finance.

FullSpeed Automotive, home to flagship brands Grease Monkey®SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service®, and Kwik Kar®, recently promoted Jim Boswell to chief financial officer of FullSpeed Automotive.

Boswell started with FullSpeed in 2021 as vice president of finance. Since then, he has been instrumental in building a high-quality finance team tailored to support the fast-paced demands of the brand, the company said.

Notably, he built out a highly impactful financial planning and analysis team and launched the brand’s Business Intelligence function. “After superb performance, Boswell was named interim CFO in December 2022. He has since continued to elevate the finance and accounting function, ensuring alignment with the broader strategic goals of FullSpeed, making him the ideal candidate for a permanent CFO position,” FullSpeed Automotive said.

“The last couple years with the FullSpeed team has been extremely rewarding,” said Boswell “I’ve enjoyed my time with the brand and have learned so much. I’m excited to continue to support the company as the brand makes an impact and continues to expand across the country.”

Before joining FullSpeed Automotive, Boswell worked as CFO for Streamline Brands for two years, doubling the company’s EBITDA, professionalizing the accounting department, and installing an ERP system during that time. 

“Jim’s extensive background has not gone unnoticed. I’ve had the privilege of working with him directly this past year, and have been impressed by his growth and contributions to the brand,” said Rob Lynch, chief executive officer of FullSpeed Automotive. “He has generated meaningful savings, optimized cash flows, and forged solid relationships between accounting and finance while providing incisive support to multiple functional groups, demonstrating himself as an asset to FullSpeed. I am confident that our financial trajectory is set for unprecedented growth under his leadership.”
