The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will be hosting the annual "Repairer Roundtable" from 9--11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 11 at the Westin in Westminster, CO.
The meeting is free of charge and open to all industry participants. SCRS only requests that attendees pre-register so it can accommodate the audience as best as possible. Register by clicking here.
This year, SCRS is excited to welcome Jack Hartung, Chief Financial Officer of Chipotle Mexican Grill, as guest speaker for the program.
Jack will provide SCRS audience members with an intimate look into the critical role of culture in an organization; the idea of reshaping the consumer expectation; the challenges and potential for success in developing a business model that accounts for higher quality and higher associated costs, even in competition with low-cost providers; and the fundamental importance of consumer trust, how easy it is to lose, and necessary measures to build it back.
Chipotle is working to ensure that better food, prepared from whole, unprocessed ingredients is accessible to everyone, a vision that is rooted in the company’s longstanding commitment to enlightened sourcing and classical cooking.
In his current position, Jack oversees all aspects of Chipotle’s finance department, including financial and strategic planning, financial reporting, investor relations, and tax and business strategy. Jack also oversees IT.
Immediately following the presentation, Jack will be joined onstage by:
• Jeff Kallemeyn, Kallemeyn Collision, Chicago, IL
• Matthew McDonnell, Big Sky Collision, Billings, MT
• Robert Grieve, Nylund’s Collision Center, Denver, CO
These repair facility owners will join Jack in discussions about their reactions to points and considerations raised in his presentation, and applicability to their own collision repair businesses. The unscripted dialog will allow repairers---both onstage and in the audience---to ask questions, explore ideas, options and opportunities that may exist for their own independent businesses, and to dig deeper into particular areas of interest from the presentation.
