The Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) has announced Dan Risley, Vice President of Quality Repair and Market Development for CCC Information Services, as the newest member of the CIF Board of Trustees.
The foundation says Risley has been an engaged supporter for many years, beginning with his work forming and executing a fundraising programme that helped raise US$500,000 to build a medical centre at Camp Mak-a-Dream in Missoula, Montana, from 2001.
According to the CIF, Risley has a long history of philanthropic involvement across the industry, including as a CIC Database Task Force member, NABC board member, AMI board member, Database Enhancement Gateway board and State Farm Advisory Council member. He created and chaired the NABC fundraising programme “Leave Something Behind,” which allowed for hundreds of free prostate cancer screenings for men in Atlanta, toys for children in need during Christmas time in Las Vegas, books for grammar and middle school libraries in Seattle, and monetary donations to a children’s cancer hospital in Maryland. CIF says that outside the industry, Risley also created and implemented a fundraising programme that raised several thousand US dollars for the Susan G. Komen fund for Breast Cancer Awareness in Detroit.
“We welcome Dan Risley to the CIF Board of Trustees and look forward to his assistance serving the industry through fundraising and generating awareness for CIF, so we are ready to answer the call when tragedy strikes again in our industry,” said Michael Quinn, Board Chair of CIF and Senior Vice President, AirPro Diagnostics. “Dan’s particular skill-set and commitment to serving will be of great value to CIF and ultimately the industry at large.”
“I am a long-time supporter of CIF and the philanthropic work that they do,” said Risley. “Joining the CIF Board of Trustees is a great fit with my passion for helping people in need, and I believe I can leverage my industry network to help CIF continue to provide critical emergency relief to the industry.”
