35-Year Industry Veteran Continues Arizona Body Shop’s Legacy as New Owner-Operator

James Huard, a long-time industry veteran operating and managing many body shops during his 35-year career has become the new owner-operator of Painter’s Collision Center, along with his wife Kelly Huard. Operating in Queen Creek, Arizona, a suburb of south eastern Phoenix, Painter’s Collision Center embarks on the next chapter in its 17-year history with a recognized and decorated industry veteran and competent management at the helm. 

Huard began his career as a detailer where he quickly grasped the business of running a shop. From there, his career began to accelerate forward in leaps and bounds. As his ability to affect positive change was realized, Huard would ultimately be appointed to various executive management roles for national MSOs–General Manager, Regional Manager, VP of Operations–apexing as an operating partner for a body shop platform in Southern California; now with a shop of his own.

“Some of my earliest memories as a growing up were in my father’s body shop, watching him transform tangled messes of metal into beautifully repaired vehicles with such grace. As I grew older I knew I wanted a shop of my own, and this year it became a reality and I couldn’t be happier,” commented Painter’s Collision Center Co-owner and operator James Huard. “Having spent more than thirty years in collision repair, I’m confident Painter’s will emerge as a strong player throughout Arizona operating multiple locations and offering repairs that meet the stringent of standards and those that exceed vehicle owners’ expectations.”

Painter’s Collision Center out of its original 25,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. With a 16-member team, Painter’s Collision Center offers a full service valet, curbside and virtual estimates, and an award-winning experience to the growing population of Arizona. 

“For the past several years, I’ve watched James build shops from ‘square 1,’ mentor staff into management positions, and build profitable businesses,” stated Painter’s Collision Center Co-owner and operator Kelly Huard. “Being able to work along-side James and build our business from one location into what I know will be many is a dream come true for us all.”
