Gerald Wicklund, 2015 Executive Of The Year Award
Wicklund started in the family business when he was 12. By the time he was 18, he was working in the shop as a painter’s helper and doing small body repairs. In 1980, he became the head painter, then became an estimator in 1986. He took over as general manager in 2000, then formally became owner in 2012.

Some of the awards Wicklund has earned over the years include: 2013 CARSTAR Marketing Award; 1994 and 2013 Liberty SERTOMA (Service to Mankind) Award; and Best of the Northland for the past seven years.
