Car ADAS Adds Integrations and Support Manager

In his new role, Nate Thomsen will help open new calibration centers and support licensees to ensure their success.

Car ADAS Solutions announced that Nate Thomsen has joined the company as manager of integrations and support.

In his new role, Thomsen will help open new calibration centers and support licensees to ensure their success. This includes providing facility certification, on-site technician development, an overview of shop set-up and sharing calibration knowledge through body shop visits.

“We are so excited to bring another proven industry leader to our team as we continue to grow our footprint,” said Greg Peeters, CEO of Car ADAS Solutions. “In addition to his many accomplishments, Nate is a great guy, fitting into our team’s chemistry perfectly.”

Added Thomsen, “Calibration is becoming more important each day as vehicle systems advance to keep drivers safe. I’m looking forward to being part of an industry that’s new and evolving.”

Based out of Seattle, Wash., Thomsen has more than 25 years of experience in the collision repair industry. After serving in the U.S. Navy from 1994-1997, he was hired as a car detailer in 1998 and then worked for a small MSO in Seattle. Since then, he has held numerous positions in the industry, including regional vice president of operations for a large MSO, where he met Peeters.

Thomsen also worked with Car ADAS COO Kevin Caruso, who he has known for 25 years.

“Having known Nate for many years, he will bring top-notch leadership, industry knowledge and passion to the company,” said Caruso. “We’re excited to welcome him to the Car ADAS Solutions family.”

Thomsen recalls Caruso asking him if he was interested in joining a new industry.

“I was ready for a challenge and felt this opportunity was the right fit,” he said.
 
As the manager of integrations and support, Thomsen said it will be rewarding to be a mentor and leader helping support Car ADAS Solutions’ licensees and working with the CAR ADAS team.

“They are a fantastic group of people, especially with the culture they have built,” said Thomsen. “I’m excited to join the company and help licensees set up calibration facilities across the country.”

Thomsen is an active outdoorsman, enjoying time with family and friends. He and his wife, Julie, have four children.
