CARSTAR, Fix Auto Honor Veterans Within the Network

CARSTAR and Fix Auto USA are taking time this Veterans Day to honor those within the U.S. franchise family who have served to protect their country.

“We are very grateful for the sacrifice of the veterans within our CARSTAR family,” said Chris Dawson, collision and paint president, Driven Brands. “We are proud to have many veterans in our system who have served to protect our country and now are a part of the Fix Auto USA network.”

Some of the honorable individuals who have served include:

Luigi Scola, owner of CARSTAR Scola's Collision Center, served in the U.S. Navy onboard the venerable USS Independence CV-64. He was attached to the VF-32 F-14 Tomcat Squadron.

He now owns and operates his own CARSTAR collision center in Brookfield, IL. Scola exemplifies the core attributes of the Navy: initiative, accountability, integrity and toughness, within his facility day in and day out. He is known to get the job done and instills a top-level work ethic within his team to lead to the success of his business.

Chris Hudson, general manager of CARSTAR Alpine Auto Body, served in the U.S. Army for 15 years. He was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan on three different occasions during his time serving. During this, he was awarded the Valorous Unit Award, the second highest U.S. Army unit decoration, which displays “Extraordinary Heroism in Action against an armed enemy of the United States of America.”

As general manager of CARSTAR Alpine Auto Body, Hudson has used his wealth of interpersonal skills to build an amazing team and has earned the respect of everyone he works with.

Justin Stubler, field performance manager in CARSTAR, served as an air defense artillery officer for three years. He continues to support veterans and those in active service and donates regularly to the Disabled American Veterans.

Stubler’s background has helped him be a great asset to the owners in his district. He has an amazing understanding of the CARSTAR operations, which he is able to pass on to the owners, and he knows how to generate confidence within the owners in which he works with.

Jeff Baker, director of support maintenance at CARSTAR Ottawa, served six years in the U.S. Army, from 1979 through 1985, and made the rank of staff sergeant before returning to civilian life and joining the CARSTAR family. His strong character and tireless work ethic have earned him the respect and loyalty of his colleagues.

Michael Williamson, one of many veterans who work for Fix Auto USA, is an estimator at Fix Auto Sun City. Williamson is a U.S. Army veteran with six years of dedicated service. His steadfast work ethic and winning attitude are welcomed every day by coworkers and customers alike. 

“Michael is dedicated to his team and is always ready to step up when needed,” said Dawson. “He is a huge asset to the Fix Auto Sun City team, and we can’t thank him enough for his service and dedication to his work.”
