Randy McFalls
Fixed Operations Director
828-694-2540

Randy has been a Henderson County resident all his life. He attended West Henderson High School and has taken several courses in Automotive Technology and earned a certification in welding at Blue Ridge Community College.

During middle school, he held a full time job at Etowah Valley Country Club and performed a variety of duties on the grounds and in the dining room area at night. In 1978 his curiosity of the automotive business took him on a different path. He accepted a position with Carolina Auto Parts in Asheville as a stock clerk. After a few months he was asked to fill in as a counter person and then moved to the Hendersonville location of Blue Ridge Auto Parts as a full time counter person. 

In early 1980 he made the decision to form a partnership and open a chain of Automotive Parts Stores, the first which was Mountain Auto Parts in Brevard N.C. In June of 1986, he sold his interest in the business and joined the Hunter Automotive Group in 1987 as a service consultant.

Randy was soon promoted to service manager and currently holds the position as Corporate Fixed Operations Director.
