Meet the Team - Shawn Gallope

Shawn Gallope has been part of the Tidewater Express team for the past 2 years, and is one of our in-shop diesel mechanics based out of the Hampton truck repair shop. Shawn has learned a great deal in the relative short amount of time that he has been with Tidewater Express, and that has made him one of our go-to diesel mechanics for light to medium-duty truck repairs. From performing diesel system diagnostics to inspecting mechanic components to repairing diesel engines to conducting routine maintenance checks – you will have no worries when your truck is in for repairs in Shawn’s bay!

Check out some of Shawn’s quotes to our TEI team member Q&A….


Favorite part of working TEI?

It’s a good atmosphere. I like the people. We’re a family.

Favorite brand of tool?

Since I am constantly using my cordless subcompact tools, I’m going to have to go with Milwaukee Tools. With Milwaukee, there is one system which makes portable productivity the focus.

Favorite music artist/band or song?

I grew up on jazz and pretty much everything, so I listen to pretty much everything. From Beethoven to jazz to whatever.

Favorite pizza topping?

Italian Sausage.
