Operative Talent

Driving Talent Forward

Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) has partnered up with BASF and KTL Restorations of Danville, VA along with support from Hemmings and Carbuff Network on Operative Talent. The project is focused on attracting future talent to the industry by educating the population as a whole on the ample opportunities, success stories and segments within the collision repair industry. To help achieve this goal, the team will be hosting a fundraising initiative by hosting a sweepstakes to raffle off the 1969 Camaro, “Talent” to build a Careers in Collision website along with the Public Service Announcements promoting the industry.

The Build

A 1969 Camaro, built by KTL, will kickstart the Operative Talent initiative. This project, called “Talent” will be raffled off, with the winner announced live at SEMA in 2023!
