The Auto Care Association on March 15 announced Mike Anderson of Collision Advice as the keynote for the PBES Conference to be held May 23-24 during the 2023 Auto Care Connect event at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, FL.
At the 2023 PBES Conference, Anderson will share updates on the current paint, body and equipment (PBE) industry landscape and also reveal and analyze fresh survey results from the award winning survey “Who Pays for What?,” distributed quarterly to an audience of more than 25,000 collision professionals. In recent surveys, Anderson and his team asked collision shops their views on the current distribution market and what their motivators are for selecting their manufacturers, suppliers and paint lines.
Anderson is a former multi shop owner, based out of Alexandria, VA. Anderson is an Accredited Master Automotive Manager (AMAM) through the Automotive Management Institute (AMi). He also participates in the development of the collision ASE testing for technicians and estimators in the U.S. Anderson also is fully certified in all collision categories for ASE.

Anderson also produces a quarterly summary of the latest trends and statistics in the U.S. for the collision industry, as well as conducts quarterly surveys of more than 28,000 collision repair professionals regarding insurer reimbursement.
