The Australian Collision Industry Alliance (ACIA) has appointed Hilary Bradbury as Executive Administrator, with one of her key responsibilities to be membership management and repairer liaison.
Bradbury has experience in administration at a not-for-profit entity as Secretariat of the Auto Glass Association.
“Hiliary brings to this new role a wealth of relevant experience in providing administration support for an industry body,” said Rob Bartlett, founding Director of the ACIA. “She has expertise in understanding the challenges and opportunities that present in representing and managing an emerging entity that has a variety of different members and stakeholders.”
“I am very excited to take on this new role with the Australian Collision Industry Alliance,” said Bradbury. “I fully appreciate the task ahead for the industry in increasing its attractiveness and making career pathways easier to navigate. I look forward to supporting the board and the members on initiatives to sustain the industry.”
More repairers have joined the ACIA after recent information nights, and support from industry partners is rising.
According to the ACIA, contributions are tax deductible and support its key initiatives of attracting and retaining people to expand the work force with a goal of industry sustainability and long-term success.
The alliance said industry professionals and collision repair centres are encouraged to connect with Bradbury and the ACIA team to explore opportunities for collaboration, along with learning more about the ACIA’s initiatives to support and empower the collision repair industry in Australia.
