Industry Influencers Launch “Collision Boost Radio” Podcast for Newcomers to the Collision Repair Industry

Jeff and Marie Peevy announced today the launch of “Collision Boost Radio” (CBR), a weekly podcast series for newcomers and those considering a career in the collision repair industry.

The podcast will debut with four episodes on February 17, 2020, and Jeff and Marie will be conducting interviews during the FCA/Nissan Certified Collision Conference in Orlando, FL that same week.

The free weekly podcast will be hosted by Jeff, president of the Automotive Management Institute (AMi) and 2019-2020 chair of the Collision Industry Conference (CIC), and his wife and teammate Marie, president and founder of Automotive Training Coordinators and a Women’s Industry Network (WIN) board member.

“Collision Boost Radio is for anyone starting or considering a career in the collision repair industry,” said Jeff. “Our goal is to provide listeners with a larger view of the dynamics and opportunities available and offer guidance, knowledge and inspiration.”

The podcast will include interview conversations with successful industry professionals who many listeners will find to be relatable and inspirational. Each interview ends with advice to the CBR audience.

“We are in a place in our careers where we want to give back, especially to newcomers,” said Marie. “Most of us who have enjoyed any level of success had people who took an interest in us and helped us. We feel it is time to pay that forward.”

Jeff said that podcasts have become very popular for the age group they are targeting (16 – 35) to learn, hear other perspectives and expand their knowledge.

“This platform also provides tremendous flexibility, allowing listeners to access the podcasts in a variety of environments, choose the areas that are the most interesting to them and listen as many times as they like.”

In every episode, Marie said the goal is to educate the men and women who are seeking to expand their knowledge and have a successful career in collision repair. These include students and their parents and counselors as well as any newcomer to the industry.

“I think most of us have things we wished we had known sooner in our careers and CBR speaks to that,” she said. “We also want to help attract individuals into our industry who know little about it and may also have the computer knowledge and skills we need now more than ever.”

Jeff said the collision repair industry is not the same body shop industry as it was in the past.

“It is evolving into a high-tech industry where participants work on some of the most advanced mechanical devices ever made,” he said. “We hope to provide information about the ever-changing industry and the vast range of great opportunities available.”
