The LubeVan Team : Greater than the sum of it's parts!
Jonny Miranda - Regional Technician
Growing up in the city of Oshawa, I’ve always been surrounded by car enthusiasts and mechanics. Which helped start my own passion for all things JDM. I started my passion from watching The Fast and Furious and DIY videos as a kid to graduating with honours in the Motive Power Technician Course at Durham College. Since my graduation and completion at Durham College I’ve been working hard at LubeVan, using my skills and talents to deliver outstanding customer service and excellent maintenance skills to the GTA.
Dallas Canavan - Creative Director
Dallas Canavan is the Creative Director of LubeVan in marketing content and concept design.
She has always had a fascination with the automotive industry. As an artist, hyper-realistic vehicles are a favourite subject matter of her works, from Ferrari’s to Plymouth’s.
Dallas is currently studying at the University of Guelph in Landscape Architecture.
By applying her artistic skills to the LubeVan business, she is able to combine both of her passions to market this one-of-a-kind brand.
Robert Martin - Technician & Owner of LubeVan Hamilton
Since childhood Robert has always had the inquisition to understand the operation of mechanics. This curiosity turned into a passion of spinning wrenches.
In 2008, Robert began helping people through emergency services in a professional capacity.
Then in 2013, around a campfire, the LubeVan was presented to him. The idea of being able to help people, combined with the passion for cars was a perfect match. And, he began working with LubeVan in the GTA.
Robert is a firm believer that one gets out of their vehicle what they put into it; a testament to this motto is his 2002 Honda Civic - the first vehicle he bought. He routinely completes maintenance and she’s still his daily driver at over 380,000km!
After, several years of turning wrenches from the LubeVan to keep customers moving in the GTA, Robert decided to bring the LubeVan to Hamilton to bring his passion closer to home.
Ryan Mihelic - Vice President : Fleet Partnerships
Growing up in a small Northern Ontario town, I’ve always had a passion for sports and working as a team towards a common goal. In my professional career my greatest passion comes from investing in people, teams and innovations to make great things happen. I consider myself a business athlete, first line center, striving to provide solutions to create an impact and transformational change.
Working 10 years as a National Account Director at ZOOM Media, I helped build partnerships and multimedia campaigns for brands such as Coca-Cola, Adidas, GM, P&G, and many more.
