Member of the month: Steve Sturken
Spotlight date: January, 2019
The ASCCA Membership Committee proudly announces Steve Sturken of Sturken Auto Body as its ASCCA member of the month for January 2019. ASCCA regularly honors members who go above and beyond in demonstrating ASCCA’s core values of integrity, compassion, professionalism, and unity. Along with these core values, Steve also embodies ASCCA’s core purpose: To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them voice.
Steve’s business, located in San Jose, sets itself apart from other shops by offering three services—auto body, auto repair, and RV repair. Steve takes pride in his business model, saying “within each of these I have tried to distinguish myself by specializing in diesel repair, hybrid repair, and RV body repair. These services have set my shop apart from the others while offering customers a variety of services to choose from.”
When asked why he values being an ASCCA member, Steve said he understands the tremendous value of being associated with progressive, like-minded individuals. “Being a member of ASCCA has connected me to my peers so we can discuss any and all industry related issues and learn from each other on a regular basis. It’s important that independent shop owners stay closely connected to their industry, and there is no better way of doing this than through the ASCCA.”
His favorite part of being an ASCCA member? “Every year our chapter throws a fundraiser holiday party, and I have had the privilege to MC the event. It’s a great time for us to come together for a good cause, get to know each other, and I have a great time raffling off prizes.”
Thank you, Steve, for your ongoing commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your participation, knowledge, and most importantly, your commitment. Congratulations!
