Carubba is the 30th collision repair professional to be honored with the award since BodyShop Business first started handing it out in 1984.

The award recognizes true collision repair “visionaries” who have experienced great success through innovative thinking, overcoming challenges and persevering.

Carubba’s collision career spans more than 33 years. He now leads a seven-store, family-owned and operated business based in the Buffalo, N.Y. area. Their message to customers? “Understanding the complexity of your car and assisting you with your insurance claim is what we do best.”

The main reason for the BodyShop Business staff selecting Carubba over dozens of other qualified candidates is his dedication to giving back to the industry. Not only has he grown his own business into a thriving, state-of-the-art operation, he has put in the time and resources to lift up the entire industry and be an example for his colleagues to follow. His industry-related activities are numerous:

• Participant in the Collision Industry Conference
• Advisory board member and past chairman for the Western New York Board of Cooperative Educational  Services
• Member of the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers
• Advisory board member and past chairman of the Erie Community College Repair Program
• Member of the Collision Repair Council of the Theory of Constraints
• Board of directors, Western New York Better Business Bureau

Carubba has also made numerous donations of time and money to charitable activities in his community, including:

• The New York State Golden Gloves
• University of Buffalo
• U.S. military defensive driving class
• Tonawanda Police Department K-9 unit and SWAT team
• North Tonawanda SWAT team
• Niagara County Sheriff’s K-9 unit
• Western New York food bank

“I am truly honored to be among the prior group of 30 distinguished individuals who have received this award, and in my 33 years in the business I’ve never been prouder,” said Carubba. “I am sure that it was a difficult decision with so many potential candidates, and I want to thank the judges for choosing me for this incredible compliment.”

As part of winning the Collision Repair Shop Executive of the Year, Carubba received an expenses-paid trip to the 2013 NACE Show in Las Vegas from BodyShop Business. He will receive a plaque in a formal ceremony prior to the opening General Session of the show on Thursday, Oct. 17.
