Scott Longmuir

Scott Longmuir grew up in Melrose, which is why Stephen’s Auto Body and the community mean so much to him. Before starting in the family business, Scott attended Masconomet Regional High School and moved on to North Shore Community College after graduating. Shortly after, Scott hit the ground running by taking on multiple roles. He managed the tow company which involved 24/7 response time for the Melrose Police Department and other businesses, and he quickly learned the ins and outs of how to run a successful company.

Scott is currently the General Manager of Stephen’s Auto Body. Some of his responsibilities include managing the day to day priorities of the shop, meeting with customers to review car details, and speaking with insurance companies to make sure the repair process is smooth and in-line with their goals. Scott strives to make Stephen’s Auto Body a body shop that is convenient and reliable for their customers and by doing that, Scott has managed to become a part of many of the Insurance referral programs. In addition, Scott has incorporated an Enterprise Rental Car on-site for the ease of his customers.

His greatest accomplishment to this day is his daughter, Mila. Scott and his family still live in Melrose and plan to raise Mila here for the foreseeable future. When the time comes, Mila will be learning the ins and outs of Stephen’s Auto Body, just like her dad.
