July 21, 2015—Mike Anderson of Collision Advice announced on Monday the addition of Scott Simmons and Dean Hancock to his staff of business consultants.

Simmons has over 25 years experience in the collision repair industry, including experience working for a major insurer, working in a management capacity for a 10-location MSO, and most recently, helping MSOs and other collision repair businesses improve daily operations as a process consultant. Simmons has extensive experience with successful implementation of collision business management systems.

Hancock is currently working part-time as a Collision Advice consultant while continuing to operate his own heavy-duty truck collision repair shop, Bob Johnson’s Body Shop. His 30 years in the industry include 10 years as a technician and more than a decade as a paint manufacturer representative. Hancock specializes in estimating and lean production management, particularly for businesses that include commercial vehicle repair such as heavy-duty trucks, RVs, and trailers.

“Scott and Dean each bring their unique perspectives and specialties which will help our team assist shops with an even wider range of services and expertise,” Anderson said.
