OVERLAND PARK, KS -- CARSTAR has announced the appointment of Roger Wright as Vice President of Insurance Relations. In the newly created role, Wright will provide vision and leadership for CARSTAR as the company continues its commitment to developing mutually beneficial relationships with insurance carriers.

As CARSTAR’s Vice President of Insurance Relations, Wright will manage the company’s insurance relations team as it strengthens current relationships and launches new agreements with the nation’s top carriers.

"Providing impeccable customer relations is the core of CARSTAR’s success," says Carlew. "From the general public who rely on CARSTAR to return their vehicles to pre-accident condition to the insurance carriers who turn to us for cost-effective quality, we’ve earned a sterling reputation for outstanding service. As we move forward with our five-year plan for growth, Roger will be an essential member of the winning team. We’re excited to have him onboard, and look forward to a renewed dedication to our insurance partnerships."

Prior to joining CARSTAR, Wright was Vice President of Sales-Insurance Relations for Collision Team of America in Indianapolis, where he achieved an impressive 11 percent increase in sales revenue during 1998-1999. From 1993 to 1998, Wright was AVP Claims-Material Damage Manager with Integon Insurance in Winston Salem, North Carolina, where he redesigned and implemented the company’s value added direct repair program.
