CIECA Webinar to Feature CIECA Founder Erick Bickett

Bickett’s presentation, “Back to the Future of Collision Repair & How CIECA Brings All Industry Segments Together,” will be held on Tuesday, June 30, at 11 a.m. CST.

The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) announced that its next CIECAst webinar will feature Erick Bickett, founder of CIECA and past CEO and co-founder of Auto Center Auto Body (ACAB) Automotive Group and FixAuto USA.

Bickett’s presentation, “Back to the Future of Collision Repair & How CIECA Brings All Industry Segments Together,” will be held on Tuesday, June 30, at 11 a.m. CST. All industry segments, including CIECA members and non-members, are invited to attend.

During the one-hour live broadcast, Bickett will share insight about the current landscape of the collision repair industry and what changes are expected to happen in the future. He will discuss how the industry has been affected by COVID-19 and offer businesses tips on what shops need to do to prepare and be sustainable for the long-term. He will also talk about the critical role CIECA plays for all segments of the collision repair industry.

“CIECA is the only industry organization providing standard methods of electronic commerce used by the entire collision industry community,” said Bickett.

Bickett has 39 years of experience in the collision industry. He and his partner started ACAB in 1984, now part of Fix Auto USA. They also founded Fix Auto USA, which was sold along with ACAB to Driven Brands in April. Over his career, Bickett has been involved in the establishment of several other companies, including Caliber Collision and CynCast, a technology company serving thousands of collision repair shops that was later sold to Enterprise Rent-A-Car. In addition, Bickett and his partners set up the Collision Career Institute (CCI), an educational organization supporting apprenticeships in the collision industry.

Webinar attendees can earn Automotive Management Institute (AMi) credit toward an industry-recognized, professional designation and specialty degree.
