The National Auto Body Council announced that Crash Champions has joined the philanthropic organization as a level-one partner.

As a level-one partner, Crash Champions, and its nationwide network of repair centers, will work alongside a consortium of collision repair facilities, rental car companies, parts and materials providers, insurance companies, automotive recyclers, salvage companies, towing companies, industry consultants and more to serve communities across the country with programs that help change and save lives every day.

“We are honored to welcome Crash Champions to the National Auto Body Council at our highest level of partnership,” said Scott Sampley, chairman of the NABC board of directors. “Crash Champions is a dynamic, growing company that has been a tremendous supporter of the National Auto Body Council over the years. In 2022, Crash Champions and its recent acquisition Service King Collision refurbished and presented more than 50 NABC Recycled Rides and helped educate hundreds of first responders through the NABC First Responder Emergency Extrication program. We look forward to continuing this momentum with them in the year ahead.”

Operating a rapidly growing coast-to-coast network of collision repair centers, Crash Champions is the largest founder-led multi-shop operator (MSO) in the U.S., serving customers and business partners in 36 states. The company was founded in 1999 by industry veteran and 2022 MSO Executive of the Year Matt Ebert, as a single Chicago repair center. Today, the organization is continually recognized for its commitment to operational excellence, an employer of choice for industry professionals, and as an engaged member of the local communities that it serves.

 “The Crash Champions team is honored to continue its longtime support of the National Auto Body Council and the great work that it does in support of the collision repair industry,” said Matt Ebert, founder and CEO of Crash Champions. “We believe in conducting our business through the lens of "People First, Always." Joining hands with the NABC through its positive support of the industry and our local communities, underscores that commitment and inspires our team members. We look forward to the positive impact we can make together in the lives of deserving individuals and families through this strengthened partnership.”
