Joe Gothen – Owner
Joe is originally from Connecticut. He was the first full time employee that we brought on board. He was finishing up school at MMI in Orlando and came back to the area to work with us on Saturdays while waiting to graduate. Once he graduated, top in his class, he started working with us full time. He specializes in Harley Davidson but since joining our team he has had the opportunity to work on just about everything
Joe was the first full time employee brought on board right after graduating top in his class from MMI in Orlando, FL. He worked part time while he was in school.
After working with a 35+ year Master Technician for the past few years, he has earned the right to be an owner. He specialized his studies in the Harley-Davidson program while in school; however, his service years in the field have been filled with experience on all makes, models and years. He is a family man with a new wife and child. They are proud to call Bonita Springs, home!
