Eric Warrington - Owner
Before he could drive, Eric was fixing anything that had a motor. Whatever the year, make or model, if it had nuts and bolts, it was an interesting project to Eric. After graduating from Colorado State University with a business degree in 1986 and working at various dealerships, Eric transformed his lifelong passion for fixing cars into Community Auto in 1995. Eric is dedicated to creating an enjoyable atmosphere at Community Auto, and the success of the company is found in his ability to always put people's best interests first, whether it be his employees or customers.
After hours, Eric likes to bring wrecked cars back to life, including his most recent, Project Viper. He and his wife, Tanya, have raised six children: Stacia, Katie, Trenton, Chris, Emily and Matt.
Stacia Hamp - General Manager
Growing up us as a mechanic's daughter, Stacia has lots of experience getting her hands dirty, whether it be fixing her first car with dad or a summer job mopping the shop floors. Dedicated to learning, she is also a Colorado State University graduate. Since 2004, Stacia has helped transform Community Auto from her father's one-man shop to a thriving business able to serve many clients in Northern Colorado. Her passion for educating people about their car, providing a safe and comfortable atmosphere for car repairs, and inspiring people to take action has contributed to her successful leadership at Community Auto and the community beyond.
The Crew - Service Advisors and Technicians
This is where the magic happens - transforming a vehicle back to life. It requires countless training hours and tools. It requires dedication and commitment to get the job done right. It's not a simple task, but rather hours of intensive work, both with their hands and their minds. Some days are physically and mentally exhausting. But in the end, the reward is seeing the problem fixed and that client smile. Their appreciation makes it all worth while. Thank you to our crew that makes this happen. You are the ones that keep our cars reliable and safe on the road.
