“Tom McGee has been a great asset for I-CAR and for the auto collision inter-industry. He has been a loyal and selfless champion of I-CAR, here in North America, and in New Zealand and Australia”, said Edelen. “A true visionary, Tom McGee has influenced many of the positive developments that I-CAR has been able to achieve over the past decade and a half. The evolution and development of the I-CAR Tech Centre in Appleton, Wisconsin, as an industry standard for the research and production of quality technical training for the inter-industry was due, in large part, to Tom’s personal vision and his tireless commitment to bring it about. Tom was integral in the decision to establish the I-CAR Training Support Center in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.”
Edelen went on to say, “Tom McGee’s real legacy at I-CAR will be the thousands of students who have benefitted from I-CAR courses developed with his involvement and under his direction, and the I-CAR staff whom he has developed for the benefit of the inter-industry. I-CAR is grateful for Tom’s many contributions over the years, and we wish him great success in the future.”
The areas of Product Operations, Industry Relations, the I-CAR Training Alliance, and International, for which Mr. McGee was responsible, will be re-assigned among I-CAR’s staff directors.
