Recognizing What’s Valuable: Doing your best. Giving your all.

"Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even into your smallest acts. This is the secret to success." - Sivananda Sarasvati

What better ways to measure success?

In our travels around the country, the staff of BodyShop Business has been fortunate to meet countless shop owners who are accomplishing this “secret to success” every day. They’re the men and women whose commitment to their businesses, their employees, their communities and their industry benefits us all.

Unfortunately, accolades are too few for the many deserving people of this industry. However, in 1984 BodyShop Business attempted to change that by inaugurating the Collision Repair Shop Executive of the Year award.

The award is not intended to honor the person who has the biggest shop or makes the most money. The intention is to recognize the individuals who’ve made and continue to make a difference in the collision repair industry. Those people who, by putting their “heart, mind, intellect and soul” into all their efforts, make this industry a better place.

Any collision repair shop owner or manager is eligible for the award. An entry form can be found on page 11 of this issue. Nominations must be received by Sept. 30.

You can fax your nominations to (330) 670-0874, or mail them to BodyShop Business magazine, 3550 Embassy Parkway, Akron, Ohio 44333.

The winner – the 22nd BodyShop Business Collision Repair Shop Executive of the Year – will be announced at NACE in Las Vegas Nov. 5.

The BodyShop Business Collision Repair Shop Executive of the Year is for and about people who continually strive to do the best.

For as Albert Einstein once encouraged, “Try not to become a man of success, but rather to become a man of value.” The collision repair industry is fortunate to have an abundance of valuable people.

The staff of BodyShop Business magazine looks forward to hearing about all of you.
