Todd Hansen grew up in rural Utah the baby in a large family. His father, retired military and war-veteran, taught all of his children the value of hard work and doing things right. Todd knows nothing different. As a seasoned industry expert Todd has covered the spectrum from dealership experience at Hyundai and CarMax to rebuilding full size diesel engines for Freightliner. He is certified to perform Safety and Emission Inspections and holds multiple ASE certifications and can always be counted on to deliver excellent results – if your vehicle needs help you can’t get better help than Todd. Blue is one of Todd’s favorite colors, but Yellow is what reminds him of what is most important to him — family. When not at work, he is nearly always on a family adventure — from hunting and archery to family campouts and ATV rides. Of course nothing enhances an adventure like great food at family BBQ’s and Smoke-outs. Todd’s family T-Shirts say “I might be wrong, but I doubt it: I’m a Hansen”.

Damian Shaw started wrenching in the early 90’s under one of Canada’s most respected European technicians who ‘moonlighted’ as a Physics professor. That business had a real reputation for looking after its customers and was the inspiration for the name “Integrity First”. Also a software engineer, Damian holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Philosophy. He wrote the practice management system that runs every aspect of the shop. Afterhours Damian can be often found “enhancing” the shop’s software. Damian loves everything with wheels especially Mercedes and BMWs; he learned to drive on an air-cooled VW Vanagon. Damian founded Integrity First in 2003 and holds ASE Master Technician certifications. Damian enjoys spending time with his family swimming, camping, and canoeing. His true passion is photography and almost all images used by IFA were taken by him. He has recently fallen down the rabbit hole of medium and large format film as well as large digital stitches.
