Jennifer Jarzembowski, PPG national business development manager, OEM After Sales, led the seminars held during the event, lending her expertise in OEM certification requirements with the goal of bringing value and profitability to repair facilities seeking certification, as well as those who are looking to maintain it.

“It was a pleasure to be a part of this event and provide so many shops with this valuable information, which they can begin implementing immediately,” said Jarzembowski.

The highlight of the event was keynote speaker Mark Olson, founder of VECO Experts. Olson is a highly respected industry expert and educator whose company works with shops all over the U.S. on quality, process and profitability.

“It was great to see so many people hungry for information,” said Olson. “We go to meetings in some very populated areas and only 20 to 30 people show up. This meeting was in a remote area, and many people came from all over – it was inspiring!”

The event drew more than 80 attendees, and it was standing room only…proof that the CAA East Bay Chapter is extremely strong with excellent leadership.
