“The body shop and insurance industries have been instrumental partners over the past 20 years, so we certainly understand the industry’s need for qualified graduates of collision school programs,” said Bob Stuart, Hertz executive vice president of global sales. “We are proud to show our support by helping to provide meaningful opportunities for these students in collision education.”
CREF Executive Director Clark Plucinski said, “I would like to thank Hertz for their support of the Education Foundation’s work improving high school and college collision school programs. Improving collision schools helps students have the skills industry employers need, and connecting those students with the array of career opportunities in our industry, they are better prepared to enter the industry as productive, efficient, entry-level employees.”
