Dent Wizard International, which specializes in automotive reconditioning and SMART (small to medium area repair techniques) repairs, recently promoted Mike Black to president — in addition to his current position as chief operating officer. 

Black replaces Terry Koebbe as president. Koebbe retains his position as chief executive officer. 

In this role, Black will have more responsibility over Dent Wizard’s domestic and international operations and will take a more active role in new product development and geographic expansion, according to the company.

“Mike has done a phenomenal job as COO over the past six years,” said Koebbe. “His passion and commitment to success has been a key driver to Dent Wizard's growth, and his ability to connect and lead our field staff has been impressive. Equally important, Mike has been very effective in the management and development of relationships with several of our largest customers. It’s been exciting to see Mike's growth as a top executive at Dent Wizard and look forward to seeing his handling of expanded responsibilities as president.”

“It is an honor to serve as Dent Wizard’s president,” said Black. “Working together, including a talented team of leaders, we’ve built an industry-leading company that remains focused on serving customers, expanding our geographic footprint and services, and supporting the front line managers and technicians that make Dent Wizard a winner.  I believe in our ability to create an even better Dent Wizard, and I’m appreciative of the trust and confidence from Terry Koebbe, Gridiron Capital, and the Board.”
