Bill Snow has been a car guy since he was born, seriously. In the summer of 1972 he attended his first Trans Am race at Mid-Ohio – while still in the womb. The sounds and fumes must have influenced this passion.
At 16 the first car Bill worked on was a 1956 Chevy Bel Air. He had a screw driver and a pair of pliers and figured out how to get it running. From there he’s tinkered with, played around with and has enjoyed cars.
During his high school years, he worked at a local car dealership. He swept the floors, cleaned cars, attended shows and helped the mechanics to learn as much as he could about cars.
While in college he managed an automotive repair business. After college he worked in corporate positions with Robert Half International and Sprint. Bill earned his MBA from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. It was during his MBA coursework that he developed a business plan for an automotive related business. His passion for the automotive industry was re-ignited.
In February 2014 Bill opened Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Centers in Wickliffe. His goal was simple – to make car repair better.
In January of 2020 Bill joined Rad Air Franchise Systems as the Vice President of Marketing & Franchise Development. His responsibilities include overseeing marketing and supporting Rad Air’s existing franchised locations. He also works to open new locations.
Bill is active in the local community. He sits on the board of the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce, has been on the leadership team of Business Network International, hosts local car care clinics, sponsors food drives at the shop, sponsors the annual Wickliffe Car Show, works with local tech schools, and supports many Wickliffe city and school events.
