FIXED Names New Online Columnist
July 11, 2019—FIXED is excited to announce that it has added Bob Kuehl, vice president of fixed operations for the Zeigler Automotive Group, as an online columnist.
“We’re so excited to welcome Bob as a columnist,” FIXED editorial director Anna Zeck said. “His unique perspective on managing fixed operations and years of experience will make him a valuable asset for readers and the publication.”
Zeigler Automotive Group is in three states (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan) with 26 locations and 77 franchises. Kuehl started in the industry as a technician in 1987 for the Zeigler family in Kalamazoo, Mich. At the time, there were only three stores. Since starting in the industry, Kuehl has watched the auto group grow as his position has progressed from service writer to shop foreman to managing and eventually to his current position as fixed operations vice president.
Kuehl’s columns will be available exclusively online and will come out once per month. Kuehl will touch on a variety of topics that will provide fixed operation managers insight on how to operate smoother.
