CIECA Names Paul Barry Executive Director


CIECA announced June 1 that Paul Barry has been named executive director of the organization, effective that day.

In his new role, Barry will work with CIECA’s board of trustees to develop a clear mission and objectives for the organization, as well as an effective strategy to accomplish those objectives.  


“With the rapid changes to vehicles driven by technology, including autonomous vehicles, the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), the landscape is evolving very quickly,” said Barry. “My goal as executive director is to help the board identify challenges faced by the industry and work with all segments of CIECA’s member companies to develop a strategic roadmap to take us to the next chapter.”


Barry has more than 30 years in the insurance and technology industries. Over the last 20 years, he has held executive/senior leadership positions with a focus on claims and auto repair technology.


“We are excited to welcome Paul Barry to the CIECA team,” said Kim DeVallance Caron, CIECA chairwoman and director of global product development, Enterprise Holdings. “His years of industry experience, combined with his prior involvement with CIECA, will be instrumental in taking the organization into the future.
“On behalf of CIECA’s board of directors and members, we want to show our appreciation to Ed Weidmann, who has acted as CIECA’s interim director over the last year. Ed played an essential role in helping the organization continue its mission to develop and promote electronic standards that allow the collision industry to be more efficient.”


DeVallance Caron also thanked the executive director nominating committee, chaired by Roy Schnepper, owner of Butler’s Collision, for spearheading the search.


“Through their tireless efforts, we were able to find an executive director to help CIECA carry forth its mission,” she said.
