MEET THE MANAGEMENT
CEO - Co-Owner
Mr. Wenk started HBi Auto in 2015. Making the decision, he aspired more significant challenges away from a position in the automotive body and paint industry. His background includes years of professional engine repair, motocross racing, and auto body repair and paint. Billy embraced learning everything possible relating to Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren. He has an insatiable desire to expand his experience and knowledge. When it comes to being at the shop, it is practically impossible to get him away. He would move in if he could. Billy’s passion for this business and revolutionizing the industry is so persistent that it makes anything he puts his mind to, possible. Billy stays involved with daily operations but when time allows, he enjoys reading, riding dirt bikes, and spending time with his family.
COO - Co- Owner
Mr. Wiles professionally trained in paint polishing and compounding, product effectiveness, paint perfection as well as coating and coating maintenance. A graduate of the Esoteric Elite Detailer Academy, Owner/Operator Evan Wiles trained on the most modern and responsible paint correction techniques. He is well-versed in the industry’s best practices and products.
Evan Wiles joined our team in 2017 after deciding that he wanted to take his automotive knowledge and experience to a higher level. He previously managed an auto parts store, as well as his own detailing business. “Working long hours” does not even begin to describe the time put into helping this company grow. Since his first day, he has treated this company as his own and made sacrifices, took risks, and cared in the same way an owner would. Evan is primarily known for always keeping a composed mindset, and can always be counted on to solve problems effectively. He doesn’t have any free time, but when there is some- he likes to spend it with his wife, Sara, and Goldendoodle, Theodore.
