Kevin Crawford, Owner/Operator
Kevin is an experienced, professional technician, who grew up in Wanganui, New Zealand, where he completed his apprenticeship in Automotive Engineering. New Zealanders are often referred to as Kiwis because the Kiwi is the national bird of New Zealand, hence the name. Kevin strives to provide professional, reliable service, providing quality products at fair prices.
In 2005, Kevin moved to Canada, continuing to work as a technician with the long-term goal of owning his own shop. In the fall of 2017, Kevin and his wife, Nichoel, purchased the shop he was employed at for the past 11 years, and renamed it Kiwi Auto. The new name not only reflects new ownership but instils the easy going and reliable business values that Kiwis are known for. You'll notice a silver fern in our logo, which is the national plant for New Zealand, and a common symbol for all things Kiwi.
Nichoel Crawford, Owner
Nichoel grew up in the Vernon area, completing her Bachelor of Business Administration in 2006. Nichoel enjoys all aspect of business and being a small business owner has always been a dream of hers - although she will admit owning a repair shop was not what she envisioned! Nichoel, like Kevin, focuses on delivering a quality of service that is reliable and sincere. You most likely won't find her working on your vehicle, but behind the scenes she's everywhere.
