Member of the month: Maria Carrillo
Spotlight date: November, 2017
The ASCCA Membership Committee is proud to announce that it has selected Maria Carrillo of Carrillo & Sons Collision Center as the ASCCA Member of the Month for November 2017. Each month, an ASCCA member is recognized for going above and beyond to support ASCCA's Core Purpose: To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them voice.
Maria and her husband started Carrillos Autobody in May of 1981 and specialize in automotive collision repair. As their three sons, Tony Jr, David, and Daniel got older, they eventually started working at the shop - running the business and taking care of the customers. To this day, the shop is still family owned and operated.
In 2012, Maria joined ASCCA and will be the president of Chapter 24 next year. When asked how ASCCA has benefitted her business, Maria replied 'The knowledge I have acquired about the mechanical side of the automotive repair industry has been vital in keeping up with the changing times. Not only that, the friendships I have made through this association will last a lifetime.'
Maria also said there are many memorable moments while being involved in ASCCA. 'Being on the board, we at Chapter 24, have had plenty of special moments. We have awesome people that are committed to the industry and ASCCA.'
When asked what she loves about ASCCA, Maria replied 'The structure and the mission of ASCCA is something I highly value. I love the dedication people have to the association and how everyone is willing to help each other out in a time of need. I cannot overstate it enough, there are a lot of good people, and to have them in my life is an honor.'
Thank you Maria for your ongoing commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your participation, knowledge, and most importantly, your commitment. Congratulations!
