Nov. 2, 2021, LAS VEGAS—Assured Performance Network founder and CEO Scott Biggs announced his retirement during the Collision Industry Conference on Tuesday at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Biggs said that the decision was final as of yesterday and said he's "fully out." He did not disclose future plans.
In addition, he confirmed that Assured Performance Network was acquired by OEConnection, although provided no further details. In recent months, OEConnection has made numerous acquisitions, including a recent one of VeriFacts.
