The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has hired Aaron Schulenburg as its executive director, filling the position left vacant by Dan Risley in August. The SCRS believes Schulenburg’s combined experience in collision repair businesses, associations and interindustry relations will be a great asset for the association and its affiliates.
Schulenburg currently serves as the administrator of the Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG www.degweb.org), a Web site that enables collision repairers to submit inquiries to information providers on issues they’re having with estimating databases. The DEG is currently seeking applicants for the position (click HERE).
Before his position at the DEG, Schulenburg worked for repair facilities in Arizona, Delaware and Maryland, and was an executive officer of the Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association (WMABA) and director of the National Auto Body Council (NABC). He has also served as a guest speaker for numerous state and regional associations, business development groups, annual corporate conferences and both national and regional forums.
“Aaron Schulenburg is an excellent choice on multiple fronts,” said SCRS Chairman Gary Wano, Jr. “Clearly, Aaron provides SCRS with a highly qualified and respected individual within our industry to serve as SCRS’ executive director. In addition, Aaron’s working relationship with the leadership of the national trade associations will enhance the already strong bonds between the SCRS, ASA and AASP.”
Schulenburg is the third person to hold the title of executive director for SCRS in its 25-year history. Risley held the position for eight years, while John Loftus served as the first executive director for 17 years.
Schulenburg will begin his new duties on Jan. 5. For more information, visit www.scrs.com.
