Our History


Marcus Aman - CEO

Marcus Aman is a self-described "gearhead" who turned his passion for automobiles into a full-time career.

Raised in the small community of Clinton, North Carolina, Aman worked on cars under the watchful eye of his father, Michael Aman. After high school, he pursued a baseball career with Mount Olive University and after college, took his first job at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, NC. After having a lot of success, Marcus would later move to Greenville, NC to be the fixed operations director for Bob Barbour and Rick Hendrick at Barbour-Hendrick Honda.

After 14 years of breaking records, Marcus started Shyft Auto based on experiences with customers over the years and around inefficiencies in the repair shop. Marcus is currently the CEO of our company, a great husband, father, and friend. Marcus’s passion and will to win pulls teams together to reach the finish line every time.

Built By An Award Winning Service Manager
