Aaron Schulenburg, executive director of the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS), is the recipient of the second annual James Moy Memorial Award for Dedication to the Automotive Repair Industry.
The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) presented the award to Schulenburg during a March 16 ceremony at the NORTHEAST Automotive Services Show in Secaucus, N.J.
Moy, a beloved figure in the automotive repair industry, passed away two years ago this spring. To honor his legacy, AASP/NJ partnered with Moy’s longtime friend and colleague Larry Montanez to create the award to recognize individuals in the collision repair industry who work tirelessly to better the field for all.
“James was inspirational in the industry,” Montanez said. “We decided to give out an award to somebody who excelled in the collision repair business that particular year to better the industry. We don’t think we could have picked a better person [than Aaron Schulenburg].”
A visibly moved Schulenburg remarked: “James was an amazing guy who gave a ton of inspiration to everyone, myself included.”
“Like James, there’s nothing that I do for this industry alone,” Schulenburg added. “It’s with friends; it’s with people I love dearly who all do it because they want to see this industry be the best that it can be. James was surrounded by people who lifted him up and helped him with what he wanted to accomplish, and I feel the same way.”
