We're a small, hard-working outsourcing firm based in Houston, TX. Established in 2009, we hit the ground running with our direct approach to salvage auction management. Inventory management, title review, catastrophe response, auction oversight, all in an effort to maximize salvage returns; we offer our customers the full package.
Jim once dreamed of running his own business. It took several years of wading through the auto insurance industry before he was able to carve out a niche in salvage expertise and began to lay the ground work for the cornerstones of MAST.
When Jim isn't studying auction results he tries to spend as much time as possible in the New Mexico Rockies focusing on his other two passions in life: motorcycles and guns. He swears he's not an outlaw.
Jimmy traveled around the country before settling down in Chicago. He developed quite a knack for chit chat and developed a heck of a sense of time management as he balanced his auto insurance job by day while trying his hand at the Chicago comedy scene by night. After finally peaking with a series of semi-slightly okay stand up and sketch shows he ultimately shifted his creativite efforts to starting up and developing MAST with his dad. These days he passes his time with good reads and non stop disappointment in the production of his favorite sports teams.
Steve has plenty of experiance in working with fathers and sons as he did so with his own father for more than 20 years. After a healthy amount of coaxing, he was finally convinced to bring his 'gift of gab' to MAST and lead their sales team.
If Steve has any flaw, its that he put off becoming a grandpa way too long. Turns out he's pretty darn good at that too.
