Matt Ebert is the visionary founder and Chief Executive Officer of Crash Champions. A passionate industry entrepreneur, Ebert founded the company in 1999 as a single local repair center and has grown the brand into the third largest multi-shop operator (MSO) in the U.S.

Today, Crash Champions serves customers at more than 600 locations in 37 states as the largest founder-led MSO in the country and has attracted investment from some of the world’s leading equity firms, including a recent growth investment by Clearlake Capital Group in 2022.

Since founding the company as New Lennox Auto Body and rebranding to Crash Champions in 2014, Ebert has remained steadfast in building a fiercely independent and operationally-centric business that promotes ownership and opportunity for its team members and operators.

In 2022, Crash Champions experienced a transformational year of growth in which the organization added more than 400 locations to the organization’s footprint – including the historic acquisition of Service King Collision. That same year, Ebert was named the MSO Executive of the year by leading industry publication Bodyshop Business.

Ebert is passionate about building the industry’s Employer of Choice and has implemented several innovative internal programs to promote a dynamic culture, team member success, and professional development.
