Repairify names Ben Johnson as new vice-president

Global diagnostics and calibration company Repairify has appointed Ben Johnson as vice-president of general automotive repair markets.

He will lead the business development and product management teams for asTech Mechanical, which remotely connects repairers to asTech’s authentic OEM tools enabling them to carry out vehicle health checks, programming, and calibrations without having to purchase the specific OEM tools.

Johnson, who has held leadership roles at SPX and Delphi and is an active member of the Society of Automotive Engineers, said: “The increasing complexity of vehicles means there is an increasing need for repairs to be completed using functionality exclusive to OEM tools.

“Making these OEM tools easier to access will help more shops across our industry complete all repairs properly. That’s why I’m so excited to help Repairify expand their patented remote OEM solutions, which have made them a leader in the collision space, into the mechanical industry as well.”

Craig Edmonds, president of asTech, said: “Ben brings a wealth of talent and knowledge, so we’re thrilled to have him join our team. He’s been transformative everywhere he’s been. And as we expand this line of business, we have no doubt he’ll have those same results leading business development and product management for asTech Mechanical.”
