Leadership team




ryan crooks


I have been in the automotive industry for over 15 years with the last 7 years running 7 Sprinter franchises, with 2 being the #1 and #2 volume stores in the country. I created Slate, formerly Out & Upfitters, to give customers an option that is focused on quality and turn time. There are tons of options out there but our services are always grounded in what the owner experience will be when they eventually come into a service center to do maintenance or the occasional warranty repair. Using OEM guidelines and expertise we have developed easily serviceable and very reliable solutions for our customers.

 Outside of work I enjoy traveling with my wife, playing volleyball whenever possible, supporting our favorite soccer teams and almost anything related to cars!
