FenderBender announces 2023 Management Conference keynotes

July 25, 2023
The premier leadership and management conference for collision repairers takes place this fall in Aurora, Colorado at ABRN's sister publication, FenderBender's Management Conference.

Two collision repair veterans will provide top-level strategies and updated industry insights during keynote speeches at the 2023 FenderBender Management Conference, which is set for Sept. 24-26 for the annual event of ABRN's sister publication.

Mike Wandrey with Shop Fix Academy's Pro Collision division will deliver the opening keynote. Wandrey has 25 years of body shop experience, which includes running independent shops and being an executive with Caliber Collision in the highly competitive Southern California market. His experience in multi-shop operations, acquisitions, business and leadership development, and working with thousands of body shops across the United States has uniquely equipped him to be a coach and consulting manager with Shop Fix Academy. He currently calls Tennessee home with his wife Heidi and their four children.

The closing keynote will be given by none other than Mike Anderson, founder of Collision Advice. A former multi-shop operator based in Virginia, Anderson is a leading industry expert and Accredited Master Automotive Manager through The Automotive Management Institute. He helps to develop testing for ASE in collision repair and also works with OEMs to provide factory training for estimating, scanning, and calibration. Through Collision advice, Anderson meets with industry stakeholders 300 days annually and conducts surveys with tens of thousands of professionals.
