What we’re made of.
We measure our success by doing right by our customers.
For us, it’s all about relationships, not transactions.

JeffJEFF ARTZI, FOUNDER
Jeff was the CEO of an 80-store automotive chain but the more he researched, the more he discovered that customers were looking for a better automotive services experience. Jeff bought his first shop—Vistoso Automotive—to deliver an experience beyond what most shops offer. Every element of Vistoso Automotive is built on Jeff’s obsessive focus on quality and hospitality.

JOHN KLIPPSTEIN, MANAGING DIRECTOR
John is the “go-to guy” for automotive services in Oro Valley. He’s earned that reputation because he cares deeply about his customers, their safety and their wallets. With years of experience and a truly terrific personality, John is pleasing customers every day.

JOE JIRELE, ASSISTANT MANAGER
Joe began his career in the automotive industry over five years ago as a lube tech. Prior to joining us as Assistant Manager, he had more than ten years of experience in hospitality related industries. He’s also working on earning his degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Northern Arizona University. Joe was born in Phoenix but grew up in Tucson—mostly in the Oro Valley area. Outside of work, he enjoys playing softball in a Tucson league, playing golf, and hanging out with his friends.

LINDSEY WIEDERSTEIN, CUSTOMER AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS COORDINATOR 
Lindsey is a recent grad from the University of Arizona where she earned her degree in Retailing and Consumer Sciences.  She enjoys spending time with customers and forming relationships throughout the community as a part of Vistoso’s OOROO Cares Program.

GREG EWER, PARTS MANAGER
Greg has 40+ years of experience in the automotive industry as a Master Technician. He got his start in the business in the ’70s, working in his dad’s shop while he was in high school. Greg is originally from Minnesota, but he’s been in Tucson since 1967. He and his wife Gracie are celebrating more than 40 years of marriage. They have two children and nine grandchildren, all of whom live in Tucson. In his spare time, Greg enjoys spending time with his family and bowling every Wednesday.

ALBERT RIVAS, EFFICIENCY AND QUALITY CONTROL COORDINATOR
Albert has 14+ years of experience in the automotive industry as a lube tech, as well as in tires, general repair and maintenance, and sales. He is originally from Tucson, but grew up in Loveland, Colorado–and now he’s back in Tucson to stay. He absolutely loves his two daughters and spends most of his free time with them. Albert also enjoys playing softball and watching football; his favorite team is the Broncos.

Oro Valley Vistoso Automotive Team

These guys are as good as it gets. Great shop techs and the management staff is awesome! John and George are the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet, and they know their stuff. This shop is by far the best in town. No other shop can match them for their quality, professionalism, or genuine caring about their customers.
