Keep one eye on the repair estimates and another on your mailbox as the latest edition of Collision Repair magazine makes its way to shops and homes across Canada—this time featuring a focus on everything to do with industry relations—customers, staff, partners and everyone in between.

Gracing the cover this time around is Bryan Leier; a nearly 50-year veteran of the collision industry and expert on nearly every corner of the trade. From his hometown repair shop in rural Saskatchewan to the sophisticated dealer-owned facility he manages today, there is little Bryan has yet to encounter, but much he has to offer in the way of insights on a successful and prolific career.
