Charlotte, North Carolina — For the first time since North America’s largest network of collision repair brands was created, the Driven Brands family of collision repair companies will gather virtually on Dec. 9. for UNIT3D 2020 convention.

The UNIT3D virtual conference will feature keynote speakers like Collision Advice founder Mike Anderson, discussing the state of the industry, as well as Nancy Friedman, a well-known and popular customer service keynote speaker, sharing her secrets of success.
Driven Brands will also present the annual awards to the ABRA, Fix Auto USA and CARSTAR franchise partners.
Speakers include Michael Macaluso, Driven Brands’ group president and EVP of paint, collision and glass; Landon Thompson, vice president of operations for Fix Auto USA; Arlo Johnson, Driven Brands’ SVP of insurance; Mark Wahlin, VP of franchise development and operations for ABRA, and Fisher.
At the UNIT3D virtual summit, there will be opportunities to raise valuable funds supporting Cystic Fibrosis Canada, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Collision Repair Education Foundation, through branded apparel purchases and more.
