Dent Wizard International, a global leader in automotive reconditioning and SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Techniques) repairs, recently added Eric Walker as regional business development manager, covering the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and Southern Virginia.

Walker will focus on growing Dent Wizard's customer base for SMART repair services, which include paintless dent removal, wheel refinishing, bumper repair, interior repair, chip and scratch repair, and hail damage repair services. Walker will also lead the sales of Dent Wizard's Frontline Fast program for dealership pre-owned inventories. He will report to Regional Vice President Garrett Griffith.

Walker started with Dent Wizard in 2003 as a district sales manager for Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas. In 2004, he moved to Charlotte to be district sales manager for North Carolina, South Carolina and the Virginia Beach area. Prior to this promotion, Walker served as district sales manager for Tennessee and Kentucky. With Walker's help, Dent Wizard has had tremendous growth in these states. The number of technicians servicing Memphis and Louisville more than doubled in each market, and the number of technicians in Nashville increased six-fold.

"Eric's promotion is just one indicator of the team's success in the Southeast and Mid Atlantic," said Mike Black, Dent Wizard's chief operating officer."And that team reflects what we're seeing across North America. Dealer groups and dealerships are increasingly turning to our products and programs for increased revenues, quicker reconditioning cycle times, and happier clients and management teams."
