Bo Jonsson – Founder
Before coming to the United States, Bo worked for Arnest Nelson, a Volvo dealership in Stockholm. In 1964, Bo emigrated from Stockholm with his wife Ewa and son Patric. Bo’s first job in the United States was with Royal Motors in San Francisco as an Automotive Technician. As the Volvo and Saab makes became more popular in the United States, Bo saw the opportunity to open his own repair facility. In 1966, he founded Bo Jonsson’s Volvo and Saab Repair and in 1968 opened the first Saab dealership in San Mateo County. Bo’s fundamentals of treating customers honestly, fairly, and professionally gained him much respect in the community.
