Employee Spotlight: Jeff Howell

Name: Jeff Howell

Job Title: Certified Mechanic

Employed with Vernell’s Interstate Service: 31 years

Favorite pastime: Riding motorcycles, hanging out with my girlfriend Leah and our dogs

Most common mechanical issue you see: Issues with electrical wiring

Biggest changes during your career: When I hired on, I didn’t expect to be here 30 years later. Things are a lot more complex, the technology more involved.

Every OEM is different, and you have to get the correct information and diagram for each one. You want to 100% know the wire leaves here and it goes here.  

“Jeff is top in his field. From recoveries to repairs, he’s seen and done it all and is our go-to guy for all things electrical. We’re lucky to have him on the team.”
