SCRS Announces Executive Director Dan Risley Leaving For New Opportunity

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced today that Executive Director Dan Risley has accepted a job offer outside of the association and will resign effective Aug. 22. Risley, who announced his departure last week, has served as the executive director of SCRS for almost eight years and played an important role in many of the successes that the national collision repair association experienced during that time.
"We will miss him, but the work Dan accomplished leaves us in a great position to move ahead." SCRS Chairman Gary Wano said.

Risley said the decision to leave SCRS was not easy, but what he felt was best for his family.

"It was an extremely difficult decision to leave SCRS because I am not just leaving a job; I am leaving my friends and extended family," Risley said. "The SCRS board of directors are some of the most committed individuals in the industry and I am thankful for having had the opportunity to serve the industry as SCRS’ executive director, and I look forward to assisting SCRS in identifying a new director who will ensure the associations continued success."
SCRS will begin the search for a new executive director immediately. Additional information about the position will be available in the coming days. Interested candidates should e-mail their resume to Linda Atkins in the SCRS administration office at [email protected].
