Local body shop from Murfreesboro continues to see positive growth
Founded in 1970, Auto Art Body Shop is locally and owned and operated and has four locations in Rutherford and Williamson counties. In February 2014, Twila Harris partnered with Danny Wallace and opened Auto Art of Nashville.
“If I’m not learning, I’m not living”. That is the motto Twila Harris lives by and over the past ten years, learning has filled her life. In May 2003, Charlie Coats, owner of Crown Ford named Twila the manager of the dealership body shop. With no prior collision repair experience, Twila embraced her new position as an opportunity to learn.
Within two years, the shop annual revenue grew to 2.5 million, named I-CAR Gold Class and Blue Oval Certified. Twila received Master Certification in both Body Shop and Customer Relations Management from Ford Motor Company. In 2005, Twila was recognized nationally as one of the Most Influential Women in the Collision Repair Industry.
Twila worked for Accurate Autobody from 2006-2103. During that time, Twila gained invaluable knowledge for both the collision industry and day to day operations of a business. When the owner sold to a national consolidator, Twila passed on a corporate position. With a desire to stay connected locally, the opportunity to team with Auto Art Body Shop was a perfect fit.
Danny Wallace and Twila Harris live with their families in Middle Tennessee.
