“Mechanical Technology”- Steve Lang on Tandem Radio

Tandem Radio on the Bridge FM Saturday, March 23rd with our Featured Guest: Steve Lang, Automotive Aftermarket Sales Representative

This week on Tandem Radio, Steve talks about the path that led him into the automotive business for 45 years, his extensive knowledge of the business and his principles that guide him to make ethical decisions.  While opportunity plays a part in Steve’s story, it’s more about the dedication to the investment of hard work that brings him his success.

 Steve Lang –Steve has been in the automotive aftermarket for 45 years. He was brought up in his grandfathers auto parts store and began working there as a young teenager. About the same time that he went off to college his father took over the store from his grandfather. His entire life he assumed that he would go into the family business, but after graduating from High School, Steve started having second thoughts about his career. Steve went off to school and attained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Technology. About the same time that he graduated from college his father’s store manager left and Steve was offered the opportunity to take over that position. He worked for his father as the store manager and partner until 1990 when his father retired and Steve took over the business. In 1995 as a result of changing market conditions, Steve sold the business that had been in his family for 49 years. In 1996 he started working for one of his previous parts suppliers as a salesman and has been there since. During his time in the automotive industry, Steve has become an industry recognized expert in automotive machine work, trouble shooting, sales, and marketing. In his current position Steve has sales responsibility for 70 accounts and three of his eight warehouses. Steve has never been motivated by income. “My business philosophy has been to do the best job that I can possibly do and the rest will follow.” As a Christian business man, Steve has always strived to make ethical decisions based on Biblical principles. In addition, he has tried to behave in a way that is consistent with those principles. As a member of the First United Methodist Church of Belmar, Steve has held the positions of Administrative Council chairman, Youth Director, Sunday School Superintendent and is currently the Lay Leader and Chairman of the Trustees.
