Dent Wizard Adds to Team in Mid-South Region
Dent Wizard International, the global leader in automotive reconditioning and SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Techniques) repairs, recently appointed Paul Spears as regional operations director for the company’s Mid-South Region.
In this role, Spears will be responsible for leading Dent Wizard’s safety and compliance efforts, as well as providing additional operational support for the company’s paint shops and Frontline Fast dealer-clients. Frontline Fast is a SMART repair program that helps remarketers and wholesalers prepare vehicles for sale sooner and in top condition so vehicles sell for maximum profit. Spears will report directly to Addison Thomas, Dent Wizard’s vice president of the Mid-South region, which includes the states of Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
Spears is a seasoned automotive professional, having previously served as a purchasing manager for Manheim Dallas Auto Auction, assistant manager at ADESA Dallas Auto Auction, and most recently as reconditioning manager for Manheim Dallas-Ft. Worth Auto Auction.
“Paul brings an extensive knowledge base and practical firsthand understanding to his new role,” said Thomas. “I am confident that Paul possesses the technical skillset and industry expertise to thrive in his new role.”
“Safety and compliance are top of mind throughout the Dent Wizard organization,” said Mike Black, Dent Wizard’s chief operating office. “Paul’s experience and perspective will ensure we’re meeting our high standards as we continue to grow Frontline Fast in this ten-state territory.”
