Caliber Collision recently announced two promotions to its executive leadership team. David Goldstein, a 20-year veteran of Caliber, will be promoted from senior vice president of operations to chief talent officer. He graduated from the UCLA Anderson Executive Program in 2015. Goldstein has more than 30 years of collision repair experience. He started as a body technician before becoming senior vice president who oversaw more than 167 locations across California.
“As a company dedicated to restoring the rhythm of lives, we focus on our teammates first who represent the single most important asset in our growing organization. [Goldstein’s] leadership skills, proven operational expertise and ability to develop people will serve to further inspire and engage our teammates as he takes the reins of our overall talent management strategy,” says Steve Grimshaw, Caliber’s collision chief executive officer. “[Goldstein’s] promotion represents our continued commitment to have the best trained, most satisfied teammates in the industry.”
Shawn Hezar was promoted to chief client officer from senior vice president of strategic accounts. He will be responsible for ensuring that Caliber exceeds the expectations of its strategic partners in the increasingly complicated collision repair industry. Hezar’s experience runs the gamut from operations to client services to OEM certifications.
“With more than 30 years of hands-on experience in the collision repair industry, [Hezar] has grown to become the consummate leader of our strategic client relationships as we work to improve customer and client satisfaction across 527 Caliber locations,” says Grimshaw.
Both Goldstein and Hezar will report directly to Grimshaw.
