Feb. 6, 2014—CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts announced Tuesday that it’s expanding its corporate team to serve its continually growing network of collision repair shops around North America. 

This January, it named three new members to its operations team and one to its technology implementation team.

Joyce Schuenke joined CARSTAR as a field support specialist implementing the CARSTAR Solution technology platform. She previously served in this capacity on a contract basis. In her new role she will provide field-level support to the CARSTAR network with an emphasis on CARSTAR’s Repair Center, and will help shop owners implement and maximize the CARSTAR Solution.

Steve Hahn joined CARSTAR as the newest area director of operations, bringing extensive experience in the collision repair industry, improving store operations and MSO management. He is responsible for executing the new regional business strategy, specific store improvement and delivery of the EDGE Performance programs in the Missouri region.

Michael Calens joined CARSTAR as the area director of operations for California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.  He is implementing the EDGE Performance platform and helping improve store operations in this region.
