Our Founder

Passion brought to shop management

Fueled by his passions for motorsports and technology, Ashot Iskandarian founded Shopmonkey in 2016. He noticed that the auto industry was underserved — lacking a modern, easy-to-use shop management system. Having worked at a number of software companies in Silicon Valley, he put his product management expertise to good use, creating Shopmonkey to help empower and enable auto shops to streamline and grow their businesses. Thanks to Ashot’s dream of a mobile, all-in-one solution, thousands of shops across the U.S. and Canada now trust Shopmonkey as their shop management software of choice.

Helping Single Mothers Since 2016

While in the beginning stages of Shopmonkey, Ashot and his wife, Annie, also founded Maintenance for Moms — a non-profit dedicated to helping single mothers with car maintenance and repairs. Inspired by their strong Christian faith, the Iskandarian family is committed to donating a portion of Shopmonkey’s profits to this deserving and underserved group of women - raising money and donating vehicles to help get them back on their feet, and back on the road.
