Regional Service Director, Hayley Navarro, Featured as an Automotive News’ 40 Under 40!

OAKBROOK TERRACE, ILLINOIS – Regional Service Director, Hayley Navarro, made this year’s Automotive News’ list of 40 Under 40. The 2022 list recognizes the young leaders in the automotive industry that are taking the reins and facing the recent industry challenges head on.

Hayley Navarro (31) enjoys the challenging, changing, innovative environment at Castle Automotive Group, where she is Regional Service Director for five dealerships in Indiana. She joined Castle Automotive in June 2020 as a fixed operations trainer and took on her regional role in July 2021. She spent the previous eight years at two different dealerships, as a service adviser and then service manager.

“With a focus on customer experience and overall satisfaction, Hayley brings an upbeat and positive mentoring style to fixed operations. She never stops proving herself by continually increasing numbers across the board, but most importantly, she has developed employees to exceed potentials they ever thought were possible. She challenges her employees in a positive and productive manner, and by doing so has created a culture within Castle Automotive Group that has laid the foundation for longevity and career growth for all employees.”Jim McLaughlin, Vice President of Fixed Operations

Navarro is in-stores every day engaged in training of employees and also filling in where necessary–everything from service manager to service advisor. “I’m training technicians, service writers, anybody under the fixed ops umbrella, from porters to managers,” she said. “I try to assist with any facet I can, whether it’s software, DMS — the dealer management system dealerships have — or training on the Castle way of service writing.” The “Castle way” revolves around transparency and the use of technology to simplify and speed up the customer service-visit experience. 

The dealerships in Navarro’s territory are Subaru, Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Buick, Ford Lincoln and Mitsubishi franchises.
