Morrill’s shop, Certified Automotive, is an AAA AAR, ASCCA member, ASA member, ASE Blue Seal shop. In addition, Certified Automotive is a five-time AAA Quality Service Award winner.

In addition, Morrill’s shop regularly collects food and clothes for local children’s homes.

Beyond being a bright shop owner, one of the greatest keys to Morrill’s success is his shop’s business philosophy: “Treat your customers like a king, take care of your employees and everything else will work out.”

“Gene was a member of Elite’s Pro Service Peer Group for many years, and from day one I was impressed with his abilities as a shop owner and with all that he does to give back to the industry and his community. I always dreamed that he’d one day coach with us, so am absolutely thrilled that he’ll be imparting his wisdom to Elite clients,” said Bob Cooper, president of Elite.
