PANEL BEATER TURNED MANAGING DIRECTOR
As a second generation panel beater and spray painter, Simon Leven jumped at the opportunity to purchase his father, Ian Leven’s, Mudgee auto body repair business in 2009.
"Admittedly obsessed with the smash repair industry, I began making dramatic product and equipment changes at Leven Smash Repairs to complement the business’ already established reputation for professionalism by having the most advanced repair technology available on the market."
Simon prides himself on reinvesting money and energy back into Leven Smash Repairs. He loves helping his team accomplish their personal and professional goals, celebrating wins and creating an environment where everyone is excited to come to work.
THE LSR VISION
We want the LSR in Leven Smash Repairs to become synonymous with the words: Leadership, Service + Results.
We also want to continue to be the employer of choice in the Central West. By ‘employer of choice’ we mean we want our team members to come to work every day knowing that they’re going to have a good time. They’re going to be listened to, respected, challenged and celebrated. Ensuring they are given a smash repair career that will enrich every aspect of their life.
As a proudly diverse group of individuals, we will maintain our inclusive approach to recruitment and ability to facilitate open and honest communication so that everyone who works at Leven Smash Repairs knows they’re part of a business that’s invested in the growth of each team member, not just the company’s.
Respect the way we treat each other. Respect the way we treat those we serve. Each person is valued and feels inspired to contribute their best.
COMMITTED + HUNGRY
Self-motivated and diligent, we do what it takes to impress our customers, while helping our team members thrive. We are constantly looking for opportunities to do better.
OPEN TO CHANGE
We commit to continuous improvement both personally and professionally. We embrace change because we believe the status quo is not good enough.
OPEN + HONEST
We tell the truth to our customers and each other, while acting in the best interest of our team, our customers and Leven Smash Repairs. We learn from each other in the spirit of openness.
Humble team members share credit. We emphasise team over self and define success collectively rather than individually. We appreciate the lighter side of life and don’t take ourselves too seriously.
We put ourselves in our customers’ shoes so that we can help get them back on the road quickly and safely. We show that we care for each other through our decisions, actions and words, and commit to praising and thanking one another for work well done.
