SANTA ROSA, CA – February 27, 2014 – On Wednesday, February
19 from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Windsor Gold Club in Santa Rosa, Management
Success!, the United States’ premier auto industry consulting firm, helped
present a collision shop efficiency class along with Management Success! client
Body Best of Sonoma and Hawley’s Paint Store. The class was delivered by
Management Success!’ Senior Instructor, Jim Saeli, and Public Relations
Representative, Athena Severi. Fifteen collision shops attended, in addition to
members of the California Autobody Association (CAA), which Management Success!
Dino DiGiulio, owner of Body Best of Sonoma, hosted the
event. As a collision shop owner, DiGiulio knew that many collision shops
struggled with profitability problems. So he contacted paint supplier, Hawley’s
Paint, and Management Success! to create the training session.
Hawley’s Paint has been serving the community since 1906 and
was happy to jump at the chance to help its customers. “When our customers do
better, we do better. That
is why we sponsor training like the one we did on Efficiency with Management
Success,” said Tom Gamber, general manager of Hawley’s Paint.
As part of Management Success!’ HOST (Helping Others’ Succeed Today) program, in which clients help other shops in the industry succeed with
Management Success! training and consulting, DiGiulio wanted to bring quality
management training to collision shops in Northern California. “I put this
class together to help shop owners and managers live a better life. I knew
Management Success! was the company I could trust to put on a one-day class
that would be very powerful and helpful in many ways,” DiGiulio said.
Always willing to support clients who want to help others in
the industry have less stressful businesses and become successful, Management
Success! was glad to help.
“Part of our commitment to our HOST members is to assist
them in any way possible with training, talks, or webinars on the subject of
management,” said Robert Spitz, Senior Vice President of Business Development.
The class focus was how to improve profitability by getting
standard procedures in place. Topics covered included how to work as a team and
how to set up standard operating procedures to control cycle times.
What made the class truly enlightening for attendees was
that the material was not only informative, but also tangible and applicable to
the situations many shop owners were experiencing in their shops.
“I have been in business 30 years and I can see that I
needed this. I needed to see where I can improve and not stick to the same
routine,” Ken Lazzini of Lazzini’s Auto body affirmed. “I am excited to go and
implement the data with my staff. I have a fresh outlook on my business.”
