Member of the month: Rocky Khamenian
Spotlight date: March, 2017
The ASCCA Membership Committee is proud to announce that it has selected Rocky Khamenian of Bimmer & Benz Specialists as the ASCCA Member of the Month for March 2017. Each month, an ASCCA member is recognized for going above and beyond to support ASCCA’s Core Purpose: To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them voice.
Rocky is the owner and operator of Bimmer & Benz Specialists in Costa Mesa, located in south Orange County. Although he now specializes in BMW and Mercedes Benz cars, Rocky began his career at an auto repair shop in London where he worked on all makes and models doing general repairs, eventually specializing in Mercedes Benz and BMW vehicles. After coming to the U.S. in October of 1987, Rocky settled in San Diego where he was hired as the manager at a service and repair shop for import cars.
Rocky first established his own business in May of 1989 on Newport Boulevard in Costa Mesa. He was not only the owner of this business but also its sole employee, performing all repairs himself. He eventually moved to another location nearby, and then in January of 2011, he purchased a larger and better-equipped property where he now employs four people and has corporate status.
Currently the Vice President of ASCCA, Rocky remains an active member of Chapters 48 and 50, where he says his favorite memories consist of serving ice cream at meetings. When asked how ASCCA has benefitted him, Rocky said “When I first joined, I immediately realized the benefits provided by the organization. ASCCA gave me with the tools for interacting with other shop owners, exposure to new laws that apply to the repair industry, and finding ways to reduce expenses while expanding customer service.”
Thank you Rocky for your enduring commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your participation, knowledge, and most importantly, your dedication. Congratulations!
