About This Location

Prior to becoming Clutch Automotive, the Dairy Ashford location was a part of the Cornerstone Automotive brand since 1997. This location was started by Tony Gregory who then sold the business to Mark Baker in 2001. From 2001 – 2020, Mark built a great reputation in the community by taking care of his customers with honest answers and solid customer service. In July of 2020, Mark sold his business to Matthew Schwab to pursue a career in counseling. Being from the Stratford community, Matthew is passionate about continuing to grow the legacy and reputation this business has built in a community that means so much to him.

General manager

Lionel Brown

Lionel = Legend. He is the heartbeat of what we do, celebrating over a decade working at this the Dairy Ashford location. Lionel was born in Miami, but moved to Houston when he was 1. He has been a Houstonian since and exemplifies the H-Town spirit: hard-working, caring, down to earth, and… “Clutch”. He got into the auto repair industry when he was 20 years old, making $7/hour sweeping floors. Over the years, he worked in multiple shops learning more along the way. He started at Cornerstone Automotive (now our Dairy Ashford location) as a general service tech (primary oil changes) and rapidly worked his way up. Eventually, Lionel became a Service Advisor due to his great customer service skills. When the Clutch Team purchased Cornerstone, we truly found a “diamond in the rough”. Lionel’s dedication, work ethic and leadership skills landed him the general manager position. The amount of customers that come in asking for Lionel is uncanny and telling to impact he has made here. He is the face of the business and we couldn’t be more proud to say that! He is married to his wife Allyssa and has two kids, 18 year old son, Garrett, and 2 year old daughter, Georgie. He and his wife are champion Tae Kwon Do athletes, enjoy watching UFC fights, going out to nice dinners, and one day might be convinced to run a Spartan Race obstacle run.
