Collision Works Names New Executive Vice President

Barry Hadlock has been in the industry since 1984 and has been with Collision Works since January 2014.

Collision Works, a provider of collision repair services with five locations in Central Oklahoma and Oklahoma City, announced the promotion of Barry Hadlock to the position of executive vice president.

Hadlock entered the industry in 1984, working as a repair technician for a small collision repair shop in Oklahoma City. In 1991, he became the collision center manager for a dealership in Oklahoma City until taking a position with Sherwin Williams as a New Mexico territory manager in 1996. He returned to Oklahoma City in 1998 to manage a collision center for a large dealership group, where he grew a $3.5 million a year location to $6.5 million in three years. In 2006, Hadlock was promoted to director, overseeing four locations. He joined Collision Works in January 2014.

“We are extremely fortunate to have someone with Barry’s talent and passion for the business in the role of executive vice president,” said Jake Nossaman, Collision Works’ president and chief executive officer. “Barry has earned the respect of our employees through his ability to nurture their development and promote continuous improvement throughout the organization. As a 2014, “Top Ten Places to Work in Oklahoma” recipient, we know how important this is – happy employees mean happy customers.”
