April 1, 2016—I-CAR recently named Bob Keith, senior director of operations training at CARSTAR, for being recognized by I-CAR as the recipient of their annual Founder’s Award.

Keith has been in the collision repair industry since the late 1970s when he formed SIlver Hammer Body Co. with his partner Greg Peterson. The two are still partners and now own four CARSTAR locations. He also has a long history of service to I-CAR, having held several leadership positions within the organization. Most recently, Keith was chairman of the I-CAR International Board of Directors in 2014-2015. 
“It has been an honor to serve with some of the best minds in the industry who regularly take off their stripes in order to make sure that I-CAR meets its vision that every person in the collision repair industry has the information, knowledge and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs for the ultimate benefit of the consumer,” said Keith.

“We are fortunate to have someone with Bob’s experience as part of our team,” said Michael Macaluso, president, CARSTAR North America.  “His volunteer work with I-CAR and numerous other organizations has not only improved the industry as a whole, but has also helped all of our shops throughout North America deliver the best possible product to our customers.”
