Judy Curry, CMO, Curry's Auto Service

COLUMN = CAR CARE

Judy Curry, the chief marketing officer for Curry’s Auto Service, has a Business Management degree from George Mason University.

When she and her husband Matt opened up the first shop in Chantilly in 1998, Judy was initially responsible for maintaining the books, paperwork, payroll, and a variety of other vital administrative functions needed to keep the business going.

Once the company grew, she took on all the marketing and advertising responsibility, a job she thoroughly enjoys. She is instrumental in creating a safe and comfortable repair shop environment for her female colleagues and friends. This effort, along with several Car Care and Driving clinics she conducts every year, got her recognized in 2009 by the Washington Business Journal as one of their “Women Who Mean Business” Awards.
