The National Auto Body Council (NABC) has announced the appointment of Dan Young, CARSTAR senior vice president of insurance, to its Board of Directors. Young will complete a two-year term vacated by Mark Lovell of LKQ Corporation due to increased business commitments.
As part of his responsibilities on the NABC Board of Directors, Young will also serve as chair of NABC’s Distracted Driving Initiative, an intra-collision industry effort to educate young drivers on the dangers of inattentive and distracted driving.
Young has been with CARSTAR for 10 years and is senior vice president of insurance relations. He oversees national and regional insurance relationships, national insurance program initiatives, claims management and data analysis. Prior to joining CARSTAR, he spent 20 years with Allstate in claims, sales and risk management.
“We are delighted to welcome Dan to our Board of Directors,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “Dan’s considerable industry experience from both the collision repair as well as insurance perspectives will be invaluable in helping NABC enhance community service programs that our membership can use to make a positive impact in their local communities.”
Sulkala also thanked Mark Lovell for his years of service to NABC.
“We appreciate the significant investment of personal time that Mark has dedicated to NABC as a member of the board and especially for his efforts to pioneer, develop and chair the Distracted Driving Initiative,” said Sulkala.
Added Young, ”I have been a longtime supporter of NABC and its initiatives to give back and help those in need. I am honored to have an opportunity to work with my colleagues on the Board of Directors, all of whom are committed to NABC’s mission to identify and implement programs that promote a positive image of our collision industry.”
