Valerie Collins - Lead Service Advisor
Valerie joined Community's team in 2012. She has over 12 years automotive aftermarket experience. Her favorite part about service advising is being able to get people back on the road while building long lasting relationships.
Val is an avid outdoors woman. She is an avid trail runner and yogi, competing in ultra trail run adventures with a local race team. When she's not running or practicing yoga, you can find her (usually with her dog) volunteering at a local race or somewhere in the mountains, getting lost.
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 CSU 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
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.
