About Collision Pros body shop
We’ll have you back on the road with autobody services you can count on
In 1975 the owner, Brian von Tress, started to work in a small shop after school and summers. He quickly realized that he had a passion for fixing cars. By the time Brian got out of high school he was well on his way to being a journeyman paint technician. Brian worked full time as a journeyman technician while attending college. After graduating from Sacramento State University, Brian went to work for a large Automotive Paint company. During the several years with a paint company Brian went back to college at night to get his Master’s degree. He knew he wanted back into the auto body business, but he wanted to work with customers. In 1997 Brian graduated with an MBA degree and went to work as a regional manager for a large collision repair chain. Over the last 17 years Brian worked his way up to Chief Operations Officer with a chain of 19 repair shops. Brian found that the larger company moved him away from the customers and employees that he loved to serve. After long discussions with his wife and two sons, Brian started Collision Pros and is on a mission to improve the collision repair experience.
