Timothy Jacobs, Owner
Tim was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. His family immigrated to America in 1979 and immediately settled in Greenville, SC. His dad, Hennie, opened Greenville Transmission Clinic in 1979. Tim began cleaning parts at an early age and started learning to rebuild transmission at the ripe age of 13. After high school, he attended Greenville Technical College where he earned an Associates Degree in Automotive Technology. Tim attends seminars twice a year to get the up to date technology information. After many years in the family business, in 2010 he left to start his own business, The Tranny Man. Tim purchased Greenville Transmission Clinic from his dad in June 2014 and merged the two business together.

Tammy is from a medical office/hospital background, but joined the family business in 1992 and worked full-time until 1995 and part-time until 2005.
