The Valley Ventura chapter of the California Autobody Association (CAA) will hold their monthly members meeting on June 23 at the Junkyard Cafe in Simi Valley. The meeting will begin at 5:30 and will feature Michael Pellett, a Regional Training Center Manager for Sherwin-Williams from Dallas, Texas.
Michael specializes in collision shop management and regularly teaches classes on Estimating, Sales, Key Performance Indicators and Lean classes throughout the nation.
Michael will talk about how you can leverage KPIs to your advantage and help drive additional business to your shop. In addition, Michael will discuss how the Reduction of Refinish Hours negatively impacts your bottom line. Come and see Michael share a straight forward and logical argument against the practice of lowering your refinish time when performing a “Blend within Panel” or “Partial Refinishing” operation.
