Meet the Tidewater Express Inc team section of our website is a new way for you to get to know our shop technicians, road service technicians, office staff and tow truck drivers. This blog post team member spotlight features our Parts Coordinator, Mike Foushee.
Mike Foushee has been part of the Tidewater Express team for the past 17 years, and is based in our Hampton truck repair and heavy duty service center location. As Parts Coordinator, it is Mike’s job to make sure that the shop truck repair technicians and our road service technicians have the truck parts on-hand that they need most often. Mike has the knowledge and experience to understand which type of auto parts need to be located where, so that his fellow mechanics and technicians can best serve our customers. His years of experience has led Mike to be able to hunt down hard-to-find and vintage heavy duty equipment, truck and RV parts.
Check out some of Mike’s quotes to our TEI team member Q&A….
A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT MIKE FOUSHEE:
- Favorite part of working at TEI?
- Finding those hard-to-find parts, like for an old bus or truck. We sometimes work on some older vehicles and equipment, and I enjoy the hunt to find the correct part as soon as possible.
- Any go-to brand of parts that TEI stocks?
- Not really, it’s more of a needing to have a good variety of truck parts on hand. We never know what will come into the truck shop for repair, or what the road service tech guys will be dealing with out on the road. So it’s more about having a well rounded stock for the shop mechanics and mobile repair technicians.
- Favorite music artist/band or song?
- I’m a country guy, so right now I’m listening to a lot of Chris Stapleton.
- Favorite pizza topping?
- That’s a toughy! I’m a Meat Lovers guy…hold the vegetables.
