Since 1918, Levin Tire & Service Center has been one of Northwest Indiana’s most trusted professionals in the auto industry. Levin Tire has built a reputation for its unmatched customer service, knowledgeable staff, and, most importantly, repair professionals you can trust.
Many of Levin’s clients get the chance to work with the company’s service advisors and mechanics but many don’t know the man behind their marketing. For the last five years, Dan Trzeciak has been the innovative mind behind Levin’s strategic advertising and technical support to the company’s five stores. He’s been building his expertise since his teenage years.
“I had a Gateway computer with a big monitor that took up nearly my whole desk. I loved working on computers and getting creative on photoshop,” Trzeciak said. “Having a computer with creative programs on it helped build my passion for design and computers.”
Growing up, Trzeciak received creative influence from his mother.
“My mom was an artist when I was younger, and she worked for a graphic design company. I think that had an influence on my career path,” Trzeciak said.
After graduating from Highland High School, Trzeciak stayed in the Region and attended Purdue University Northwest in Hammond, earning a degree in advertising. In 2008, he earned the school’s award as Advertising Student of the Year.
Trzeciak’s creativity and passion have led him throughout the Chicagoland and NWI area. Before joining the Levin Tire team, Trzeciak was the mastermind behind some of the area’s most notable casinos and a large golf equipment retailer. Looking for his next career opportunity, Trzeciak saw promise at Levin Tire.
“It’s been great managing both the marketing and I.T. side of the company,” he said. “Both sides fulfill each passion for creativity and technology.”
When he’s not creating ads, running reports, or providing technical support, you can find Trzeciak fulfilling his third passion—golfing.
“I love golfing,” Trzeciak said. “I’m an avid golfer. I play about twice a week at Scherwood Golf.”
Like Trzeciak’s passion for creativity and technology, his admiration for the game started early. Learning the game from his dad, Trzeciak grew up in a state of eagerness to hit the turf.
“I would ride in the cart with him and he’d let me hit a few drives here and there. He always said, ‘Don’t play golf too much because you’ll mess up your baseball swing.’ Well, I didn’t pan out as a professional baseball player, so now I can play as much as I want!” Trzeciak joked.
