Assured Performance Appoints Michael Quinn as Executive Vice President

Assured Performance announced on April 6 the appointment of Mr. Michael Quinn as Executive Vice President. Quinn will assume responsibility for the general business operations at Assured Performance including sales, marketing, and business development. He will also maintain a position on their Board of Directors.

Quinn is a well-known industry leader with more than 25 years experience. He co-founded a 7-shop collision repair business in Arizona & Nevada from the ground up. After the sale of the business, Quinn worked for Caliber Collision for 2 years before assuming the role of President at UParts Inc., a cloud-based procurement platform.

    An active participant in the industry, Quinn served as Collision Industry Conference (CIC) Chairman for two years (2010- 2011) after having led several of its committees. Michael has also been an active board member on the National Auto Body Council (NABC) for more than 11 years. There he chaired the Katrina Relief program to serve those displaced by hurricanes Katrina & Rita. Quinn also initiated and chaired the Recycled Rides and the First Responder Emergency Extrication (FREE) programs. He is the recipient of numerous industry awards, including the Hall of Eagles, NABC Pride Award, and ASA/SCRS Humanitarian award.

“I’ve always been dedicated to the overall improvement of our industry and this leadership position with Assured Performance fits that perfectly. In this role, I am able to leverage my knowledge and experience as a former shop owner, industry activist, and consultant in business development and education. I look forward to leading the operating team at Assured Performance and driving our OEM joint-effort, national Certified body shop network to better serve consumers,” Quinn stated.

Twenty years ago, Quinn worked with Scott Biggs, CEO and founder of Assured Performance, at the Business Development Group (BDG) and BodyShop Video. There they teamed up with dozens of other industry experts to provide business development, education, consulting, and business management services for nearly 2,000 collision repair businesses across the US and Canada.

“We are thrilled to have Michael join our executive team to work closely with our staff and shop network to drive our business success. On a personal note, I am elated to be working again with my longtime friend and ally. He has the perfect background to help expand the impact and value of body shop business development, Certification, and our other major initiatives,” said Biggs.
