ST. LOUIS — Auto reconditioning services and F&I product provider Dent Wizard International announced last week the promotion of Mike Black to CEO, effective April 1. He most recently served as president and COO.
Black will lead the company and continue driving profitable growth while overseeing all areas of the business. He succeeds Terry Koebbe, who was promoted to chairman and will advise the company’s senior management team as well as assist in Dent Wizard’s mergers and acquisitions efforts.
“I’m honored that Terry and the board are entrusting me to continue guiding Dent Wizard by our Core Values: excellence, integrity, innovation and customer devotion,” said Black. “I have a great team of people here helping me on this mission.
“We continue to expand our business across North America, and with that expansion add talented, inspired team members who help our clients and embrace our core values,” he added. “Our technicians and field leaders help drive our business and allow us to leverage our resources to continue growing Dent Wizard.”
Koebee added: “Mike has done an incredible job in his seven-plus years as COO, and deserves the opportunity to lead Dent Wizard as the CEO. I’m confident he will continue to be a great leader. After 27 years at Dent Wizard, I’m looking forward to this next phase of my career, mentoring Mike and providing assistance in any way I can. I’m also excited about leading our mergers and acquisitions efforts to find good companies that expand our capabilities and add more great people to our team.”
