Scott Swafford is an ASE Master Technician in both diesel and automotive mechanics. With 28 years of experience in automotive mechanics and 23 years of diesel mechanics, Scott was the no-brainer choice for Director of Services of Certified Diesel Solutions. Building CDS from scratch with Dan Kaman, Rowe Transfer Inc. President, and Chris Lackey in 2009, Scott is proud of the services CDS provides, its six employees, and the company it has become.
Scott was born in Orlando, FL, and grew up in Miami, FL. He attended vocational school in Florida where he studied engines. Starting out as an automotive mechanic, Scott transitioned over to diesel mechanics when he worked for Ryder Truck Rental in Miami as a main hub shift manager. After leaving Ryder, he went to work for Kenworth Trucks as a shop foreman. It’s Kenworth trucks we can thank for transferring Scott to Knoxville 20 years ago. In 2007 Scott started working Rowe Transfer, Inc. and moved into Certified Diesel Solutions when it was created.
When he isn’t working, Scott likes to spend time with his wife and 2 children, his son Kyle, an aspiring trauma nurse, and his daughter Sara, an honor student and athlete. He is fond of being outside and the beauty of the East Tennessee area has driven his enjoyment of hunting and four-wheeler riding.
