HD Repair Forum Advisory Board Welcomes New Members in 2024

The board leads the focus and direction of the HD Repair Forum's annual conference.


The HD Repair Forum announced that its advisory board has welcomed five new members. The board, made up of a diverse group of collision repair facility owners, managers and industry consultants from across North America, leads the focus and direction of the HD Repair Forum’s annual conference — which takes place this year April 24-25 at the Hyatt Regency in Frisco, Texas.

The new members are:

  • Glenn Durham of Camping World
  • John Hart of Crump Truck & Trailer
  • Ron Kuehn of Collision Business Solutions
  • Leo Nenortas of Penske Truck Collision Repair Centers
  • Todd Steenerson of Wallwork Body Shop

“Since 2017, the board members have come together to develop industry solutions, identify best practices and push for a cohesive and professional business environment,” said Brian Nessen, president and co-founder of the HD Repair Forum. “We are very fortunate to add five dedicated individuals to our already strong board. Their experience sheds new perspectives on this industry’s challenges and opportunities. Everyone involved in this event shows strong dedication and desire to improve this industry. It’s the reason the forum has expanded and will move to a larger venue in 2024.”

The HD Repair Forum’s annual conference provides industry information, education and networking opportunities for the heavy-duty and medium-duty collision repair industry. Collision repairers and industry stakeholders serving the heavy-duty and medium-duty repair markets, including tractors, trailers, RVs, buses, and delivery and emergency vehicles, are invited to join in on the educational sessions, conversations and opportunities presented at the 2024 HD Repair Forum. This includes shop owners; managers; estimators; fleet managers; dealer repair shops; commercial vehicle manufacturers; and insurance and service or equipment providers.

This year’s HD Repair Forum will provide insight on repair information and best practices, updates on new vehicle technology and related repair demands, and networking opportunities and industry connection. Following this year’s conference, industry professionals will be able to take advantage of two days of technical training offered April 26-27.

Early registration is open for a limited time and can be accessed by visiting hdrepairforum.com/register. Discounted hotel rates at the Hyatt Regency are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
