After earning his business management degree, Lund began working as a development officer for his alma mater, the University of Central Missouri. In 2005, Lund took over Warrensburg Collision when his father became ill, leaving him to learn the industry from the ground up – true trial by fire. Lund knew that things needed to change in order to reflect his own leadership style and strengths. He finally got mad enough in 2012 to alter the direction of the business, which in turn has impacted the collision industry in the area.

Lund introduced Warrensburg Collision to lean principles. This team-based approach allows for constant improvement, lessens waste and encourages leadership from within. Since taking over, the business has multiplied fivefold, customers are served more efficiently, and they’re sharing their unique philosophy for other businesses to improve their culture through tours and invitations to their morning meetings. Warrensburg Collision has been included in the Ingram’s Magazine Corporate 100 three times for business growth and recognized by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce with the Fast Track Award.

He was elected to the Warrensburg City Council in 2017, serves on various boards including the Johnson County Economic Development Corporation, Whiteman AFB Base Community Council and the Warrensburg Schools Foundation, and is on numerous committees throughout the community. In the past, he was president of the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce and is a current member of Rotary International. He frequently speaks to local clubs and schools, has presented at the SEMA Show on leadership, and is a mentor for the Big Ideas Conference at UCM. Warrensburg Collision sponsors various local teams, events, charities and fundraisers, and Lund encourages team members to become active participants in community events. Warrensburg Collision is also the Official Collision Center of UCM Athletics.
