News: SEMA Announces Finalists for Automotive Influencer of the Year
Former VeriFacts VP of sales and marketing brings more than 40 years of experience to the company.
Seidner’s Collision Centers has announced that industry veteran Mike Stacy has joined its team as director of corporate strategy. Stacy brings more than 40 years of industry experience to the family-owned Seidner organization, which started in 1964 in the Los Angeles area. He most recently served as VP of sales and marketing at VeriFacts Automotive and previously served as zone vice president at CCC Information Services.
“Having Mike with his vast industry experience, knowledge and energy will allow Seidner’s Collision Centers the opportunity to continue our growth strategy to better serve our customers,” said Steve Seidner, VP and co-owner. “Mike will be an important part of our executive management team.”
Stacy got his start in the collision industry in 1972 by sweeping floors. By 1981, he owned his own collision repair shop in Ohio after serving as an Army airborne ranger. Stacy became one of the early adopters to fully computerize his operation after attending a 3M ARMS Seminar in 1985. He has been involved with I-CAR, ASA of Ohio and local Vo-Tech advisory councils. In 1992, Stacy sold his body shop operation and joined CCC Information Services to help bring its estimating solution (EZEst/EZNet) to the collision industry.
“I have had the great honor of visiting many remarkable shops in my career and I absolutely can’t think of a better organization to be aligned with than Seidner’s," said Stacy. "I am honored to be an integral part of Steve’s and his team’s vision for the future."
