I-CAR announced it has opened up nominations for its Jeff Silver Award and Russ Verona Memorial Award.
Former I-CAR CEO Jeff Silver saw the need for industry recognition as one of the forefathers of the I-CAR Gold Class and Platinum Recognition programs. Once the Gold Class program was launched, no one embraced it faster than Russ Verona, a mentor, friend and role model for the collision industry who owned and operated the first Gold Class business.
I-CAR created the awards to honor their foresight, passion and dedication to the industry.
