“Painting the RWB Porsche was a great opportunity and it fits with my strategy of proving we are capable of performing the highest levels of work,” Reid said. “It is not our core business but we don’t ever want to be discredited for a lack of capability. The Maaco economics and national position with fleet business have also helped to fuel our rapid growth.”
Reid also stresses the importance of hiring good people. Two key members of his team are individuals with not only decades of experience working in collision shops but were also body shop owners in other states. These two gentlemen support the business in any area needed and help mentor the newer employees.
One of these individuals is the painter that Reid worked for as a helper while attending college.
Reid is a great example of someone who has turned his passion for cars and his years of experience in corporate America into the perfect blend for entrepreneurial success.
