ABRA Auto Body & Glass Announces Wahlin Promotion

ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a national damaged vehicle repair company, announced today the promotion of Mark Wahlin to the position of Vice President of Franchise Development.

Wahlin will be responsible for actively pursuing and awarding new franchises within the ABRA system.

Wahlin joined ABRA in 1998 as a District Manager, and was promoted to Director of Franchising in 2000. Prior to that, Wahlin owned and operated three Minnesota-based ABRA franchise locations.

“For the past several years ABRA has not been actively seeking new franchisees,” stated Wahlin. “I look forward to having a focus on franchise development, and the value it can bring to the ABRA Auto Body & Glass system. Our strategy is to build up our franchise presence in smaller markets that are adjacent to our large corporate markets.”

Tim Adelmann, ABRA’s Executive Vice President of Business Development, stated: “Mark is a perfect fit for this new position. He understands not only the internal operations of ABRA from the corporate point of view, but knows what type of individuals to look for when awarding franchise agreements because of his ownership background. We are very fortunate to have Mark on board, and look forward to the growth he will be bringing to ABRA.”

Wahlin and his wife, Laurie, have three grown children and live in the suburb of Stillwater near Minneapolis.
