bradr2.jpegBrad Winkler - President and Owner

Hi. My name is Brad Winkler. I have been life long friends with David and Sandi Vanderwall. When David told me that he and Ken wanted to step out of the daily role of managing Battery Boys, I knew I wanted to take on the challenge.

I have been an entrepreneur the last 18+ years, having owned another business. I am no stranger to owning and running a business plus all the long hours that go with it.

I earned a BBA degree in Business Management from Georgia State University.

I first visited The Villages in 2005 and I knew then that I always wanted to move here one day. Owning and operating Battery Boys was the perfect opportunity I was looking for.

My staff of service professionals and I are ready to serve your golf cart needs.

I am Jarrod Winkler, yes I am the son (a second generation Battery Boy) of the owner.

In July 2013 I graduated from Universal Technical Institute in Orlando, FL. After a year of intense training I graduated as an ASE certified technician.

I could not think of a better way to utilize my education than to join Battery Boys and learn to service/repair everything on a golf cart.

I look forward to the meeting you and having the privilege of working on your golf cart.

I am once again working for Battery Boys. I really like working for a company that treats their employees right as well as the customers. Battery Boys is committed to providing the best products and services to each customer in The Villages and in the surrounding area. I love being of service to our customers, it gives me a chance to help people and to give them the necessary information to keep their carts running in tip top shape.

I have been working with golf carts now since 2010. Prior to that I was a machinist. I have a solid background in all things mechanical and absolutely love working on golf carts.

Give us the opportunity to show you what we can do, you will find out why every customer that has used us will tell you that we are the best battery company that you should have working on your cart.
