Two Promotions Highlight Notable Growth at Quality Collision Group

Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania — Quality Collision Group, an enterprise of OEM-certified collision repair facilities backed by private equity, has announced two appointments to their leadership team.

Brian Nichols, a seasoned veteran of the collision industry with 30 years of experience and former co-owner of Cascade Collision Repair, has taken on the role of VP of Mergers & Acquisitions. Nichols, who previously served as VP of Operations for Cascade Collision Repair after its acquisition by QCG, brings invaluable insights to the rapidly growing company.

Jerod Guerin, CEO and Founder of Quality Collision Group, commented, “Brian Nichols' recent experience with the acquisition of his family's company adds significant value to our organization. Cascade Collision Repair had offers from the nation’s largest MSOs and chose Quality Collision Group. Having Brian’s expertise on our team is a strategic advantage.”

With Nichols transitioning to a corporate role, Cascade Collision Repair has promoted Navada Smith to the position of VP of Operations for Cascade Collision Repair. Smith, who joined Cascade Collision as an auto body technician in May 2000, has demonstrated exceptional dedication and leadership. With more than 28 years in the industry, he most recently served as Regional Production Manager for Cascade Collision’s nine locations.

Matt Robbins, QCG’s Chief Operating Officer, praised Smith, stating, “Navada Smith embodies the uplifting, motivated leadership that characterizes Cascade Collision Repair’s culture and success in the western region.” Cascade Collision Repair is set to expand further in the coming year, with multiple greenfield locations presently under construction.

Quality Collision Group's strategic focus remains centered on building the nation's largest and most trusted OEM-certified collision repair organization through a meticulous acquisition strategy. The recent appointments follow the acquisition of eight Cascade Collision Repair locations in January; a ninth location in Murray, Utah, opened in March.
