Burt Snider is the chief mechanic and owner of Snider Automotive. In 1983 Burt began working in a body shop which began a life-long love of automobiles of every make and model. He continued to work in body shops throughout high school and college, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting. Burt spent two years in the accounting field only to discover he preferred working with cars. In 1994 a friend recommended him for a job as a mechanic at Volvo of Nashville where he was trained and employed. During his tenure, Burt soon received certification as a Volvo Master Technician, and then as a Volvo Expert Technician in 2002.
In 2004 Burt won the Volvo International Service Training Award (VISTA), the highest award granted to the top 20 mechanics in North America. Qualification includes two written tests followed by a regional and national exam. The VISTA winners are awarded a trip to Sweden to visit the home of Volvo and meet the other award winners from around the world. Shortly before leaving Volvo of Nashville and opening Snider Automotive from his home in June 2008, he won the VISTA award for the second time.
