Robin Reneau better known as Rob The Blonde Mechanic is the owner and lead tech at Georgia Auto Solutions, her enterprise has expanded beyond car repairs and includes her brand of shop apparel, and cosmetics. Before the shiny boots and lipgloss you would have seen a courageous, spunky and confident woman finding her way in life and lighting a path for others to follow. Rob grew up in poverty in NYC and relocated to Atlanta when she was 18. She began her career as an office assistant at a doctors office, the money was good and could support her growing family, but it wasn’t until she became a single mom and began having car problems that sparked an interest that ignited a flame. After losing thousands in buying lemons and overpaying for car repairs, she decided she wanted to learn enough about cars, so she would not be taken advantage of. The thirst for knowledge led to her passion for automotive. She left her office job and pursued a degree in automotive technology and began to thrive in her career. In 15 years she has worked for mom and pop shops, big box retail and dealerships and has advanced from a service advisor, to pit tech, GST, lead tech, service manager, store manager, district manager, to regional recon manager. At the height of her career the Pandemic shut the world down and she was unemployed. Knowing she could not survive off unemployment she set off to be a mobile mechanic to keep her family afloat until the world opened back up. She branded herself Rob The Blonde Mechanic and since automotive repair is an essential business and was in high demand, her business took off. 10 months later she was able to open her own brick and mortar repair shop. Now she spends her days teaching basic auto repair classes, mentoring other mechanics, operating the business while coaching her team, and completing car repairs alongside her husband and son, you may even see Jack, her shop dog, around from time to time.
