Rudy Diaz, Lead Tech / Shop Manager
Rudy Diaz sometimes is nothing more than a blur in the service shop at Alderson Cadillac, not only managing the entire service area to make sure your car receives the maintenance or repair it needs but also performing some of that work. The only time he’s standing still is when he’s talking to a customer—then you have his undivided attention.
Rudy joined the Alderson Cadillac “big family atmosphere,” as he calls it, in late 2013, his latest and hopefully last stop in a car-filled career. The Aransas Pass native started delivering automobile parts when he was 19 years old before getting a job as a mechanic. He spent several years employed by General Motors, starting in Corpus Christi before the company transferred him to San Antonio.
While in the Alamo City, Rudy received an email from friends in Lubbock about the opening at Alderson. A member of the Red Raider football team in 1991 and 1992, he followed his heart back to the South Plains when he was offered the position.
Ever the athlete, Rudy still plays golf and basketball. He and his wife, Maribel, have a very artistic 16-year-old son, Nathanuel.
