Josh Jewett is the general manager of Cole’s Collision Centers, overseeing day-to-day operations at five Capital Region centers. Since 2007, Josh has played a lead role in the growth and success of the company and set new standards for best practice.
After graduating from Hudson Valley Community College in 2002 with a degree in autobody 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 him to convert a vacant building in Colonie into the first Cole’s Collision Center in 2007.
