Sandwiched between semesters, Bill Bruno spent his summers working part-time at Detail King. By the time he’d graduated from college with a degree in business administration, he pretty much knew all the ropes when it came to the auto detailing business. So it was no surprise at all that he eventually joined DK fulltime and is now our vice president of sales.
Meet Bill Bruno:
Detail King: What is it exactly that you do here at Detail King?
Bill: I work in sales and customer service, and also as a trainer for our training institute.
Detail King: What did you do prior to coming to work for Detail King?
Bill: Prior to working at Detail King I was a fulltime college student. I worked at a local car dealership as a lot attendant/detailer in high school. I was also employed with the university I attended as a Student Ambassador.
Detail King: What attracted you to work for Detail King?
Bill: I originally came to Detail King looking for a part-time summer work during school. As the years went on I found myself in a full-time position. What I enjoy the most is helping our customers better their detailing business. A lot of our customers run full-time detailing companies and I enjoy helping them grow and run a successful operation with professional products, support and training.
Detail King: Where did you go to college and what did you major in? And how did that prepare you for the job you have today?
Bill: I attended California University of Pennsylvania. My major was business administration/management. Many of my classes were based on entrepreneurial studies as well as business management. This has really assisted me in helping our customers, who consist mostly of entrepreneurs and individuals managing small businesses.
Detail King: What’s the most common mistake you feel people make when cleaning their vehicle?
Bill: They are using an improper towel or product for cleaning windows. In return they end up with smears and streaks.
Detail King: If you could take one year paid sabbatical from work to set up your own auto detailing business, what would you call it and how would you differentiate yourself from your local competitors?
Bill: The name would be Detailed Perfection. Our company would not only offer full detailing but also reconditioning services such as headlight restoration, leather repair, paint chip repair, etc. This would not only separate us from your basic detail shop but also allow the company to generate additional profits from these reconditioning services that customers often require.Tags: Bill Bruno
