Hosted by PRO, the event was led by Chair-Elect Josh Poulson and addressed essential business practices for re-opening, how to build relationships with dealers, and other topics relating to getting back to business. Cristina Jorge of Specialty Automotive Treatments, Dianna Brashler of Dealer Source, Bill Murphy of Attention to Detail and Manny Moncada of Auto Haus Automotive Solutions served as guest panelists.

“While many companies begin to operate again at full capacity, they are faced with new challenges and questions on how to strengthen their business operations and performance,” said Poulson. “This event provided our members with insight on how other restylers and facilities are taking precautions and implementing new processes to help them get back to business in ways that are effective.”

This event was the first of SEMA’s Industry Talks: Back to Business virtual series. The recording of this event and upcoming sessions will be listed on SEMA’s Back to Business resource page at
