Meet Our Staff!

Welcome to Neese Automotive. We have spent the past 15 years working really hard to establish our name and reputation in this small town of Fort Walton Beach , Florida. Starting out with just Charlie Neese on the floor working 15 -20 hour days and Jackie Neese in an office across town to help supplement the start up costs a dream was built. Year after year our customer base grew developed into a network of the best customers / friends and family ever!  That is what we strive for here at Neese Automotive. Adding on employee after employee as the demand grew we were able to bring in Wesley Neese, from Hattiesburg, MS. Wesley had been working at the Ford dealership for years and was looking to move back closer to family (you guessed it, with that last name Neese, Wesley is Charlie’s Uncle). Wesley brought all his Ford OEM knowledge, equipment, tools and expertise and can solve any Ford Diesel issue ever! Next Up came Mark Brockett- a local legend. Mark is able to remember part numbers from most every repair he has done, as well as tackle those hard to diagnose issues. There isn’t anything that has stumped him yet! (and we keep trying!) Mark loves to race his mud truck – Aftershock; which Charlie and Mark share a common interest. (Charlie races the Byepolar truck) Our most recent addition and next employee came along from working around each other in town- was always a hard worker and reliable and shares that same interest as the other boys – he built a mud truck (The Yard Dart). When Eric wanted to change his daily routine we snatched him up. No you don’t have to have a mud truck to work here, but the love of the sport helps tolerate the daily conversations, video viewings and constant thread here in the shop! We are so fortunate to have such a happy staff, it makes coming to work a breeze. Our most valuable addition? Well that is Jack. Our 2 year old Cur/ Fiest mix- He watches the boys work, often helping relocate rags or parts or boxes to keep the shop tidy and wards off any and all flying or crawling bugs for the safety of our employees and customers. He is tireless and always welcomes customers when they arrive. 

We are continuing to grow year after year and while we get busier, we maintain that small town feel. Locally owned, operated and care for. We want you to feel comfortable, confident, and completely satisfied with your repairs. We offer a nationwide warranty on all our parts and labor for 2 years and 24K miles as well as lifetime warranty on MOST PARTS! We also offer complimentary road side assistance for one year from the date of the invoice covering towing, lock out, flat tire and fuel delivery at no extra charge.

Come on down and see for yourself why its no secret, Neese Automotive is your one stop automotive repair shop.
