I-CAR Veteran Jeff Peevy Named AMI President
April 28, 2015—I-CAR announced on Monday that Jeff Peevy, senior director of collision repair and field operations, has been recruited to lead the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) as its next president.
His last day with I-CAR will be May 15.
The opening created by Peevy’s departure is not expected to be immediately filled; the organization plans to take time to determine how to best leverage the opportunity this change creates as I-CAR continues to increasingly better serve the industry moving forward, I-CAR said in a statement.
Peevy has been associated with I-CAR for nearly 25 years. He joined as a committee member in 1990 before rising through the ranks to become a top regional manager, national field operations manager, and, finally, joined the leadership team directing both field operations and the newly formed collision repair segment team.
“The I-CAR ecosystem will miss Jeff, and at the same time, we also are thrilled that he is taking on a new challenge that will also serve the interests of our industry,” said I-CAR CEO and president John Van Alstyne. “While Jeff has played a key role helping drive positive change at I-CAR over the past several years, this commitment transcends Jeff – customer focused continuous improvement is now part of our DNA at I-CAR. We wish Jeff well and look forward to exploring possible synergies with AMI that will benefit the collision repair industry, especially in new curriculums such as our new production management role, which will be launching later this year.”
