The Spring HD Repair Forum (HDRF) took place in Fort Worth, Texas on April 5th & 6th at the Historic Fort Worth Hilton. Industry leaders and executives from the United States and Canada gathered to network and participate in the only conference solely dedicated to the heavy-duty collision repair industry.
On Tuesday, HDRF leadership recognized Mark Polzin as the Collision Repairer of the Year. This award is presented to an individual for outstanding leadership, dedication, and commitment to advancing the heavy-duty collision repair industry. Mark joins a select group of industry leaders that have been presented with this distinguished award.
Mark is the current owner and CEO of Budget Truck and Auto in Janesville, WI. He is one of the inaugural HDRF advisory board members and continues to selflessly give his time and knowledge to the benefit of the entire industry. His contributions to the advisory board have led to greater participation and support from collision repairers, insurers, and manufacturers. Mark’s passion and desire to improve the industry is evidenced by a growing list of participation and support of various industry groups and associations.
The award presentation was extra special as Mark’s son, Aaron, was in attendance. Aaron is also active with Budget Truck and Auto. Mark’s passion for the industry can only be rivaled by his love and commitment to his family. We are thankful for people like Mark, because they give without expecting anything in return.
