The new advisory board members include: Dean Fisher, owner of CARSTAR Yorkville, Yorkville, Ill., representing Chicago, Indiana and Michigan; Brett Bailey, owner of A&B CARSTAR of Riverside, Kansas City, Mo., representing Kansas, western Missouri and Texas; and John Burns, owner of Burns CARSTAR, Lake Hamilton, Fla., representing Alabama and Florida.

The three shop owners join seven current advisory board members and two emeritus members in providing franchisee insights for the company.

“We are truly partners with our franchisees, and our national advisory board is an excellent example of that,” said CARSTAR CEO Dick Cross. “We’re excited to have these gentlemen join the board and bring their fresh perspective to our operations.”
