Chuck Searles Joins AMi as New President


The Board of Trustees at the Automotive Management Institute, the industry’s leading provider of management education for automotive service and collision repair professionals, is pleased to announce Chuck Searles has been selected as the organization’s new president, effective immediately.

Searles will succeed Jeff Peevy, who left to return to I-CAR as VP of technical products, programs and services in late July.


Searles brings to the position a wealth of knowledge in the industry. He has been an active part of the automotive service and training community for almost 28 years.


His career began as a dealer service technician in 1992. During nine years as a service technician, Searles was employed by three different dealers in two states, Alaska and Arizona. This diversity helped expand his skillset and knowledge base, which eventually led to a technical service support position with Nissan North America in 2001.


Over the last 19 years, he has served in four different Nissan training roles: technical training instructor, sales training senior planner, technical training operations manager and technical training instructional design manager.


“I’m honored and excited to serve the Board of Trustees and the ever-expanding client base as president of AMi,” Searles said about his new role.
