George (G.O.) W. Anderson III – Service Writer & General Manager

When not smuggling limes aboard his favorite cruise ship—“a good, firm, fresh lime really does make all the difference between a bad drink and a good drink”—George is the Service Writer for Poway Import Auto Shop. When questioned by an airline attendant why he was bringing limes into Hawai’i before his cruise, George responded, “Well, Hawai’i isn’t really known for its limes.” George knows his products.

George has spent the last 30 plus years in the automotive industry. His reputation for fairness and accuracy is indisputable. His single-minded dedication to getting the best parts – at the best price – for our clients, is only part of what makes him so good at what he does. He’s built a vast automotive knowledge and has an excellent history and relationship with our top-of-the-line vendors.


George and his wife Debbie have been married for 23 years. They have two daughters – Kylie, a sophomore at UC Santa Barbara and Katie, a sophomore at University City High School.

George is a native San Diegan. He grew up in Clairemont and attended Madison High School. In his off-time, he enjoys reading, traveling and surfing. Get him to tell you about some of his surfing expeditions and watch his eyes shine with delight!

Something a lot of people don’t know about George is that he is a world-class Costco shopper. George could write a book on how, when, and where to find the best items that Costco offers.  Finding the best and getting the best value – that’s George Anderson – we are so happy to have him here with us.
