The Secret to Success - BodyShop Business

The Secret to Success

Doing your best. Giving your all. 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 accomplish this feat daily. 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. BodyShop Business’ annual Collision Repair Executive of the Year is the magazine’s way of calling attention to the many outstanding people in this profession.

The award is not intended to honor the person who has the biggest shop or the highest sales volume. The intention is to recognize 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 of their efforts make this industry a better place.

Albert Einstein encouraged, "Try not to become a man of success, but rather to become a man of value." It’s these men and women of value that BodyShop Business attempts to honor with this award.

Any collision shop owner or manager is eligible for the award. An entry form can be found on pages 11 and 12 of this issue. All nominations must be received by Oct. 30. You may fax your nominations to (330) 670-0874.

The winner of the 19th BodyShop Business Collision Repair Shop Executive of the Year will be announced at NACE in Dallas on Dec. 6.

The BodyShop Business Collision Repair Shop Executive of the Year is for and about people who continually strive to do their best. We honor the people who know the "secret to success."

This industry is fortunate to have an abundance of these very special people. The staff of BodyShop Business looks forward to hearing about all of you.
