Ben Tallberg

Co-Owner/Lead Technician

Ben grew up in Amesbury and graduated from Amesbury High School. Following high school graduation, he attended Manchester Technical College. He started working at AFA in 1999 and learned at least as much from his new boss and mentor, Denis Gagnon, as he did in college. Since then, Ben has become ASE Certified in many areas, (Least of which is his L3 Certification for working on Hybrids which is rare in this area). He is currently working on his ASE "Master Technician Certification". Ben understands the value and importance of these ASE Certifications and wants his customers to know that there are properly trained and certified technicians working on their vehicles.

Ben knows that customer satisfaction and long-term relationships are key to his success.
He is very enthusiastic about developing programs to make doing business at
Amesbury Foreign Auto even more convenient and pleasant for customers.
