John Nance is one of many Ranken Technical College alumni who apply their skills by owning and operating a small business. All the Details, established in 2010, is located in Fenton, MO. It provides collision repair, window tinting, restoration, bumper & wheel repair, paintless dent removal and professional detailing services. The company’s slogan is “We take care of All The Details and will make you a customer for life.”

John graduated Cum Laude in 2005 with an Associate of Technology degree in Automotive Collision Repair. While attending, he participated in the SkillsUSA competition, and remembers the pride he felt after placing 3rd nationwide on Ranken’s behalf. After graduating, he gained experience in the industry with repair shops such as Don Brown Chevrolet.

John Helterbrand instructed John Nance while he was attending Ranken. “He wanted to own a business from the first day I met him,” Mr. Helterbrand says. “John was an excellent student, definitely driven to achieve his goals, and has made a name for himself and his company. In fact, my wife’s business often uses [All the Details] to detail police vehicles.”

John Nance remains connected with Ranken, not only through his former teacher, but he became an evening instructor in welding and collision repair before running a business of his own. Through All the Details, he has also hired fellow Ranken alumni. Over a decade since attending, John sees how the college gave him the skills and expertise to succeed as an entrepreneur. “I wouldn’t be the owner of a company and doing body work without my Ranken education,” he says.
