Doug and Kate Runge are the proud owners of Martin's Automotive. Doug grew up working alongside his dad Mark, who owned the business up until 2005 when Doug took over.


Doug is a UW-Madison Mechanical Engineering graduate. He was given the opportunity to take over the family business from his father in 2005 and he jumped on the opportunity. Since then he made it his mission to be the best in the industry while sustaining his original goal which is to keep the same values of his family owned business. Doug is ASE Certified and has a certificate in L1- Advanced Engine Diagnostics.
