SCOTT & JULIE MELBYE
Originally from Minnesota, Scott came to Colorado in 1982 to attend CSU for a Business Accounting Degree. As with any college student, he took on a part time job with Southland Corporation, where he meet his wife Julie. Scott soon rose through the ranks to management and about that same time realized a desk job wasn’t something he wanted to do as a career. In 1985 Scott and Julie were married and Scott left his job with southland to pursue his passion of cars. In 1987 he was hired on at Ken’s Muffler Shop to bring his expertise in suspension and front end work. Ken retired in 2007 and sold his business to Scott. Julie came to work for Scott in 2011 bringing with her more than 40 years of business managerial experience. Over the years of business Scott and Julie came to know Mark and Doreen as good friends. In 2018 when Mark decided to retire and after his original buyer backed out, he turned to Scott and Julie.
When asked why Gilsdorf? Scott’s response was “we weren’t looking to purchase another shop but after stepping in to help and seeing first hand that Mark had established strong,ethical business standards, it was easy to see that we could continue to operate the business and we wanted to make sure that this repair shop that had become a pillar in the community continued under the same name with the same guiding principles.
