The following is a truncated version of AMA Group’s recent announcement to the Australian Stock Exchange.
AMA Group is pleased to announce a realignment of the Company’s business segments to reflect the evolution of the Group and several internal promotions and appointments to senior leadership positions to bring a diversity of industrial and corporate experience to the Company and ensure the Group has the appropriate governance and depth of skills to deliver the Board’s vision for the future of AMA.
Following its listing in 2006, AMA has experienced significant, rapid growth. With approximately 175 sites, AMA is the leader in the Australian and New Zealand collision repair industry. In February 2021, Carl Bizon was appointed CEO and initiated a reform and transformation program to unlock the inherent value in the Group. The three dimensions of value which will inform the strategy going forward are:
build outstanding commercial relationships with customers for the long-term
leverage the technical skills and industry expertise in the business
secure the quality products needed to execute operations on industry leading terms
New management reporting segments have been created that will maximise the value in each business area, paving the way to realise the value of AMA’s unique position in the Australian collision repair industry.
David Marino is promoted to Executive General Manager in addition to his position as CEO of Capital S.M.A.R.T
Campbell Jones promoted to the role of Executive General Manager.

Group Chief Operating Officer

AMA will immediately retain the services of an executive search firm to commence recruitment of a new Chief Financial Officer.
