John Gattuso has always been a car guy. Growing up with a single mom, he was responsible for taking care of the family vehicle, and friends and family always knew they could count on John to help them fix their car. Out of his passion for helping others and understanding the inner workings of the automobile, John got the idea for FIXD while he was still a student at Georgia Tech.
As the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at FIXD, Frederick Grimm helps keep the ship sailing smoothly while staying on course with the future vision of the company. Fred’s background in industrial engineering at Georgia Tech came in extremely handy when the three co-founders were fielding hundreds of orders a day with the help of their friends. His perseverance, creativity, and eye for optimization helped them turn a great idea into the thriving operation it is today.
FIXD Co-Founder and CTO Charles Julian Knight is a tech guy through and through. While his early interest was in electronics hardware, he kept working on the software side of things, too. Today, Julian helps lead the engineering team and tailor the app to its user base of do it yourself (DIY) and do it for me (DIFM) car owners. But he continues to make time for his love of hardware and is currently working on building an analog synth.
