Holcomb joined Curry's Auto Service in 2008 as Chief Financial Officer. With a staff of three in the financial department, Holcomb oversees the budget for the $13 million company that is growing rapidly and is one of largest independent automotive service and repair companies in the DC area. Curry's Auto Service operates six shops across Northern Virginia: in Arlington, Chantilly, Dulles Town Center, Falls Church, Gainesville and Great Falls.

In a depression and in an industry experiencing contraction, Curry's Auto Service has grown in sales and profitability and reduced its debt. Under Holcomb's tenure, company gross revenues have increased from $7.6 million in 2008 to $10.1 million in 2009 and a projected $13.4 million in 2010. Net profit has increased from $114,232 in 2008 to $617,920 in 2009 and a projected $1.3 million for 2010. The number of stores has increased from four to six and the number of employees from 50 to 78.

Because of its growth, Curry's Auto Service was named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S for 2010. Curry's ranked number 3972 with a 33% increase in revenues between 2006 and 2009.
