ABRA’s Santos Elected Chair of Atlanta’s I-CAR

ABRA Auto Body & Glass announced today that Peterson Santos, Vice President of ABRA-Georgia, has been elected to chair the Atlanta I-CAR Committee.

He was unanimously elected at the July 17 meeting, which was attended by insurance representatives, industry vendors, repair center owners/operators, and distribution reps.

Santos joined ABRA in 2001 as a Parts Manager, and was promoted to a Production Manager in 2002. In 2003, he assumed the position of General Manager for ABRA-Lawrenceville, followed by transfers as General Manager in 2004 to ABRA-Suwanee and to ABRA-Lilburn in 2005. In February of 2006, Santos was promoted to District Manager for ABRA-Georgia, and was again promoted in December of 2006 to the position of Vice President of ABRA-Georgia.

“I’m looking forward to chairing Atlanta’s I-CAR committee”, stated Santos, “and want to focus as much as I can on industry training. I feel one of the biggest challenges we have before us is rebuilding our technical base that has been steadily eroding over the years. We need to concentrate on this area of staffing for our industry to be successful in the future.”

Santos and his wife Michelle live in Buford, GA with their son Giovanni and daughter Izabella.

ABRA Auto Body & Glass is a national damaged vehicle repair company specializing in collision repair, paintless dent removal, and auto glass repair and replacement. Started with one repair center in 1984, they have grown to ninety-one facilities in twelve states.
