“Crash Champions has more than doubled its footprint since we partnered with the Company last year,” said Jose E. Feliciano, chairman of Crash Champions’ board of directors and co-founder and managing partner of Clearlake, and Colin Leonard, partner and managing director at Clearlake. “As we seek to continue our growth trajectory, we are excited to welcome Mike to the board and look forward to leveraging his seasoned industry perspectives.”
“As an insurance partner, I witnessed firsthand the evolution of Crash Champions from a regional operator into a national platform,” said Sieger. “I am proud to join the board during this exciting time for the organization and look forward to partnering with Matt and the entire Crash Champions leadership team.”
