Peter Sosi, owner of Autocare Mobile Services, is a retired army officer, with rich and varied experience in automobile engineering, military technology, logistics, security, peacekeeping operations and nonprofit management. He started his career with the Ghana Armed Forces, after earning a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana. It was his father, then an Auto Mechanic in Ghana, who inspired him to pursue a career in mechanical engineering. He served as an officer for over 17 years, retiring as a Major. During his service in the Army, he worked mostly as a maintenance officer in charge of servicing various vehicles, including armored vehicles, trucks, buses and cars.
The idea of Autocare Mobile Services was birthed when he went in to get an oil change at his regular shop only to realize that the company had relocated. He tried another place close by and was told he was going to be scheduled to come back later, after an hour or two. He ended up doing it himself within 30 minutes and thought others who find themselves in this situation might also need this kind of service at their doorstep. After deliberations with his wife, his final decision to provide basic maintenance services to automobile users was a natural choice given his considerable experience in automotive maintenance and field/onsite repairs in the military.
