Charlotte, N.C.—The National Auto Body Council announced that Dale Ross has joined the organization as the program manager for the NABC Recycled Rides initiative. Ross will lead the NABC program, which has gifted more than 2,750 vehicles to families in need since it was launched in 2007.
Ross is a veteran of the collision industry, having spent 38 years with 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division in sales and marketing. He is a former Six Sigma Black Belt and Master Black Belt, and retired from 3M as the U.S. Marketing Operations Manager for the Collision Repair business in 2019.
While at 3M, Ross led the 3M Hire Our Heroes program, which in conjunction with the collision repair education foundation, raised more than $1.3 million to help military veterans and their family members to prepare for careers in collision repair. Since then, he has been doing freelance consulting and public relations work within the automotive aftermarket and has donated his time to assist with NABC Recycled Rides events at SEMA, CIC and various fundraising events.
Ross replaces NABC team member Sandi Freeman, who has returned to her full-time position with Hertz. She will continue her role on the NABC Recycled Rides committee.
