ABRA Auto Body & Glass has awarded two repair center franchises in the Wilmington, N.C., -area to Anthony Reese, raising the total number of ABRA locations to 90 facilities in 12 states.

Anthony has been in the collision repair business for almost 25 years, starting as a technician and eventually becoming the CEO of a multi-unit group,” said Mark Wahlin, ABRA director of franchising. “He left that position earlier this year to pursue his dream of owning his own repair centers.Because of our shared values of operational excellence, continuous improvement, and developing industry-leading team members, the fit between our two companies was a natural.”

Joining Reese’s management team are Ken Depper and Bryan Harrell, as general managers of the Shallotte and Castle Hayne locations, respectively. Both men began their careers as refinishers, and have steadily moved through numerous positions to become experienced managers. Most recently, Depper was with Mulder Collision in Chicago, and Harrell was the previous owner of what is now ABRA-Castle Hayne.

“I know that the procedures, training, and marketing support provided by [ABRA’s] corporate staff will allow us to deliver industry-leading levels of efficiency and quality to the Wilmington market,” says Reese. “My goal is to open additional ABRA facilities within the area over the next few years. This will afford us the opportunity to capture the largest market share in this area.”
