After graduating from Hudson Valley Community College in 2002 with a degree in auto body repair, Josh began his career at a Cadillac dealership in Albany. Moving to a Chevrolet dealership as an estimator in 2005, he was promoted to assistant manager within his first year.
As Josh’s business acquaintance, John Cole, was establishing his own business. Josh worked with John to convert a vacant building in Colonie into the first Cole’s Collision Center in 2007.
In his career at Cole’s, Josh has worked his way up from technician to estimator and now to general manager of all five state-of-the-art facilities. Performing all types of maintenance and full body repairs, he dedicated himself to help grow Coles’s Collision from the ground up.
Cole’s Collision built a crew of five employees by the end of the first year, allowing Josh to move into a management role and position the company for future expansion.
