Matt Lachowitzer
Founder and Owner Matt’s Automotive Service CenterPLATINUM Lifetime Member

All Matt’s Automotive Service Center locations in the Fargo-Moorhead communities are known for providing exceptional customer care and vehicle service that is unmatched in its industry.

However, for Lachowitzer, being a successful business goes far beyond auto repair. The team at Matt’s Automotive is highly trained in guest experience, relationship building, emotional intelligence and providing an unmatched experience to their customers, rather than just selling to them. “We are trying to change what people think when they think of auto repair,” he said.

Giving back to the Fargo-Moorhead community is one of the company’s core values. In the last thirteen years, Matt’s Auto has donated over $1.4 million dollars. Lachowitzer, who loves supporting local charities and organizations, said, “I don’t want to be remembered for fixing cars, I want to be remembered for what we’ve done for this community.”

CEO, Mark J Lindquist Enterprises, Inc.

Action and growth are everything to me. When I was 19, I heard a speaker say, “Life is all about having a story to tell and an adventure to take.” I’ve thought about that wisdom many times throughout life’s journey and have understood it to mean that if a person has a story to tell, then you must have recently done something fun, great, or worthy of mentioning.
