Do you know what OEs are doing to help companies like yours repair the most technologically advanced vehicles? Industry leaders from Honda, GM, Mercedes Benz and Ford are coming together at the 2017 MSO Symposium to provide their insight on the OEM Paradigm Shift.

This shift in the collision repair marketplace, driven by vehicle manufacturers, is in response both to the demands of the consumer and the government to manufacture more fuel efficient and safer vehicles. Today’s vehicles are more complicated to repair, and the call to repair them properly is more critical than ever. OE Certification, training and equipment requirements, documented repair procedures and more are influencing not just how, but who, is best qualified to repair vehicles. This panel will look at what MSOs can do to succeed in this environment and what attempts, if any, OEs are making to introduce standardization across the industry to lessen the burden on repairers:

  • Gary LeDoux, Honda
  • John Eck, GM
  • Benito Cid, Mercedes Benz
  • Mark Mandl, Ford
  • Marcy Tieger, President, Symphony Advisors, LLC (Moderator)

This is just one of the many vital topics being covered at this year's MSO Symposium, which is co-located with NACE Automechanika in Chicago and takes place on Wednesday, July 26th at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place.

CARSTAR, Caliber Collision, LaMettry’s, Travelers, Branning, Fix Auto, Allstate, and leaders from many other MSOs, insurance companies, and large independent repair businesses are already registered for this year's event.
