“We are very proud to have Mike’s proven management capabilities added to our team,” said Scott Biggs, CEO of Assured Performance. “He is exactly the kind of leader and technical expert we need to refine and improve our business development and on-site inspection capabilities, strengthening our national certified repair network of dealer and independently-owned body shops. He also provides a natural liaison with I-CAR, an organization with which we work closely.”
The certified body shop network managed by Assured Performance is projected to reach more than 1,500 total shops by year’s end, and more than 2,500 by year-end 2015.
