Besides vehicle damage, car accidents can trigger the kinds of negative emotions that can make life difficult for the average bodyshop shop manager. But not for Nick Lal at our Abbotsford West location. “Being able to diffuse a tense situation and turn it around gives me a sense of satisfaction,” he says. Helping him is training he gained from a variety of courses, including organizational behavior, operations management, human resources and sales.
A car guy at heart, Nick started out selling and installing cosmetic and performance upgrades including stereos, alarms and GPS systems before gravitating to collision repair – and ultimately running his own shop. He joined Craftsman in 2008.
Nick is an avid sports fan, playing organized ball hockey and keeping fit by chasing his two kids around the house. His business goal is to turn customers into advocates.“Knowing that they are not afraid to send their family and friends over gets me excited!” he says. Abbotsford West was purchased by Craftsman as a Beck Collision, and converted to a full Craftsman shop in 2010.
