Connecticut Collision Repair Specialists host U.S. Senate candidate

Monday, October 3, 2011 - 00:00
U.S. Senate candidate Linda E. McMahon was the keynote speaker at the recent Connecticut Collision Repair Specialists (CCRS) annual banquet in Orange, Conn.

McMahon is the former CEO of WWE where she helped grow the company from a 13-person operation to a global enterprise headquartered in Stamford, Conn., with more than 600 employees and offices in New York, Los Angeles, London, Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo.

In 2007, she was named one of Multichannel News' "Wonder Woman," recognizing her accomplishments as a leader in the U.S. cable television industry. She also has been instrumental in nurturing a variety of community and charitable programs. In 2009, she was appointed by Gov. M. Jodi Rell to serve on the Connecticut Board of Education.

McMahon spoke on "Connecticut Industries: Succeeding in a Challenging Environment." She shared her experience in building a business, failing, and restarting. "I know what it is like to start and maintain a business. I also know how it feels to fail." Linda and her husband Vince filed for bankruptcy in 1976.

CCRS represents collision repair professionals throughout the state of Connecticut. "CCRS members employ over 1,275 people. As with many small businesses in Connecticut, we face challenges with increased taxes, employee benefits and sustaining an adequate profit margin," said Lisa Siembab, CCRS executive director. "Linda is a great reminder of how determination and commitment to excellence will work."

CCRS is an affiliate member of the National Auto Body Council.
