Why Fix Auto?
Trust · Commitment · Care · Competence
Customers often want to know why we changed our name from Roth & Miller Autobody. We think that is a great question. We did so to join forward-thinking autobody shop owners in continually improving the way we repair vehicles and help customers, our employees, insurers, and vendors.
Fix Auto is a network recognized and well-respected as experts in autobody repair by consumers and insurers, not only in Portland, but throughout the United States and worldwide. Shops in the Fix Auto Network adhere to a Code of Ethics developed for your peace-of-mind, and honor a nationwide warranty. Fix Auto is built on a set of core values that aligns with our own: Trust · Commitment · Care · Competence.

Meet Our Rescue Kitty
We’re the people behind our local, independent family business.
Second Generation Owner and President
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an affinity for cars and my family has been in the business of repairing auto body damaged vehicles, from minor fender benders to major collisions, so it’s no wonder I took over the family business in 1989.
I am an Accredited Automotive Manager through the Automotive Management Institute, a Certified Collision Repair Manager through the Masters School of Autobody Management, have my Damage Analysis and Estimating Certification through ASE – Automotive Service Excellence,and have been I-CAR training. Our shop was the first in Portland to achieve the I-CAR Gold Class designation for on-going company-wide training which we have earned each year, since 1991.
I actively participate in autobody industry organizations, keep up-to-date on issues that affect my industry and the repairs we undertake each day, including serving on the Fix Auto Network’s advisory board.
I was a contributing editor for 10 years with “Automotive Body Repair News” where I wrote articles from the perspective of the shop owner.
I’ve been a guest speaker at the International Autobody Congress & Exposition speaking on topics such as, Family Business, Successful Shop Ownership, and Online Marketing.
We have been an Accredited member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) since 1977, have an A+ rating, and have been honored with the BBB award for business integrity.
I’m passionate about the auto body industry and making a positive difference in it, ballet classes, alpine skiing, being active outdoors, gardening, and reading – I’ve been fortunate to be in a book group with the same women since 1992.
Third Generation Owner and Operations Manager
I inherited the “car genes” that my grandfather Jim and Aunt Camille have. I started hanging around at the auto body shop with Aunt Camille doing various tasks when I was about 10 years old.
I’d like to help you with any vehicle-related question you may have from what your options are for that annoying door ding to what to wax your vehicle with. I’ve owned over 65 cars – I’m kind of crazy about them. If it’s vehicle related, I’m your go-to guy.
I am an Accredited Automotive Manager through the Automotive Management Institute and am ASE-certified and I-CAR trained. I attend training opportunities thorough-out the year to keep my skills and knowledge-base honed. I keep up-to-date on issues that affect my industry and the repairs we undertake each day.
In my youth I had an encounter that sticks like glue and changed my life (and perhaps that of others). I was pulled over in 2000 for street racing and the officer gave me an option to avoid the ticket. He said “Help me find a way to give kids and others an outlet for their street racing activities.” With his help, I was instrumental in organizing a weekend race program aimed at young drivers at Portland International Raceway (PIR) called “Late Night Drags,” a program that is still running. In appreciation for my involvement in developing this program, I received the “Community Policing Problem-Solving Award” from the Portland Police Bureau. I’m not proud of my street-racing past, but I am thankful to Portland Police Officer David Sessum and proud of what he helped me accomplish – bringing racing off the street and into a safe outlet like PIR.
In April of 2012, after having worked full time since 1996, I proudly was made a partner in the company.
Outside of work I’m into driving, snowboarding, playing interactive video games, date night with my wife and spending time with our families.
First Generation Owner, Retired
Jim is Camille’s dad. He had the car gene from the get go. He served in the U.S. Army, was stationed in Japan and served the automotive division from 1947 to 1949. Jim and Doris acquired Roth & Miller Wreck Rebuilders in 1963. Jim retired in 1990, a few years after the unexpected passing of Doris – his partner in life and business. Currently Jim resides in central Oregon near Camille’s sister.
