Richard Bowman, Founder and President
27 years ago, our Founder and President Richard Bowman started Collision Experts. He built the business from a small fender and radiator repair facility to one of the highest volume, state-of-the-art, collision repair facilities in the capital district. On August 3rd, 2013, Rick passed into eternal life. We not only lost our Founder and President, but we lost a father figure, a philanthropist, and a friend. Richard is survived by his wife Maryann, 5 children, and 1 grandson.
Collision Experts is a family owned and operated business, and Rick certainly made each of his employees, and customers, feel like they were a part of that. He strived to be the “Finest in Collision Repair”, and to treat every customer with the respect and honesty they deserved. It’s Rick’s customer-first mentality, and generosity, that has helped grow Collision Experts into what it is today.
Not only was Rick an exceptional businessman, but he was an exceptional person. He always believed in giving back to the community. Whether it was sponsoring the July 4th Event in Clifton Park and supporting the Shen Memorial Fund, or donating proceeds from each vehicle repaired during the holidays to the Schenectady City Mission, Rick, and the entire Bowman family, gave back to help the needs of others.
As our company moves forward in these hardest of times, we will continue to strive each and every day to make sure Collision Experts embodies Richard’s vision; to truly be the “Finest in Collision Repair”.
