WELCOMING FIX AUTO CALGARY AIRPORT
Peter Verhesen brings over two decades of solid entrepreneurial experience to the Fix Auto Canada Network
Calgary (Alberta) – April 8 2016 – Peter Polito, General Manager for Fix Auto Western Canada is thrilled to announce the addition of Fix Auto Calgary Airport to the network, effective April 8 2016.
An entrepreneur, manager and executive for over 20 years in the aircraft industry, Fix Auto Calgary Airport owner-operator Peter Verhesen realized after 20 years of owning an aircraft business, that he still wanted to be involved in his own business, but wanted to pursue growth and development in a different industry.
In 2013, Verhesen purchased a small, reputable collision repair shop, took time to learn about the business and industry, and soon after found that the next step was to join a larger organization. Having come from a different industry experiencing similar challenges, Verhesen says he had done a lot of research and found the collision industry to be ready for some changes, and that Fix Auto was leading the way.
He says; "Fix Auto brings all the advantages of a larger network to successful local businesses and markets, with a proven system that provides a platform for growth and further trust in that business. Fix Auto provides everything that a growing business would want in order to continue on the path of development."
Beyond business growth and development, Verhesen says he values customer service above all. "I am very proud of the way customers are treated in our shop. We not only provide the technology needed for today’s collision repairs, we also provide an attitude of respect and service that allows our customers to be very confident with their vehicle after repair," he adds.
Peter Polito, Fix Auto Western Canada General Manager adds: "We’ve started off the year with significant growth, and adding Fix Auto Calgary Airport to the network is just further proof of our momentum. At Fix Auto, we are always thrilled to work with the best and most driven entrepreneurs, who want to see their business grow, and we are proud to have a passionate entrepreneur like Peter in our team."
