Added Yvette Burke, vice president of the Replacement & Leisure Division at Enterprise and member of the CIF Board of Trustees, “We are extremely grateful for BASF’s support of the Annual Donor Program, which will help advance CIF’s mission to respond to the urgent needs of the collision industry. Enterprise is dedicated to supporting the communities and industries where we operate. And as an industry leader in car rental and mobility, we are honored to work alongside partners who share in our commitment to be there for collision repair professionals when they need it most.”
