Jared Washington started LKN Small Engine as a hobby working out of his garage on nights and weekends in 2013. Through the years, LKNSE has grown exponentially year over year and continues to be the fastest growing outdoor power equipment dealership in the Lake Norman area. Jared is originally from Niagara Falls, NY where he learned to love working with has hands at an early age. He grew up spending countless hours with his grandfather who retired from the Niagara Falls Fire Department as the Chief of Apparatus and later owned an outdoor power equipment dealership. Jared began driving tractors at the age of 2 and was repairing small equipment before he started kindergarten (with the help of his grandfather). Jared attended high school in Newport News, VA and afterwards attended Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. After leaving ODU, Jared spent 8 years with a top 100 furniture retailer where he worked in various locations on the east coast managing store operations to include sales, warehousing, service and delivery operations. Next, Jared moved into a regional management role with a dominant building service contractor. In this role, he oversaw the daily operations of a region with multiple levels of management reporting to him and approximately 300 employees in the region. In 2016, after 3 years of operating LKNSE part time, the business had grown to the point that Jared decided to focus on growing his own business full time. It has been with the goal of providing each and every customer with the absolute best service he possibly can, that LKNSE has continued to grow exponentially year over year. Jared holds certifications through every major engine manufacturer including his Master Service Technician certification through Briggs & Stratton.
