Who We Are
Gencor Collision Consulting offers expert advice to auto body shops on every aspect of their business to help them run at their optimal performance. Gencor is led by Gene Cortes, a 40-year veteran of the auto body industry. Since the 1970’s, Cortes has worked in every aspect of this business – from driving tow trucks, to working as an insurance adjuster for companies like Allstate and Travelers, to managing and owning small body shops before opening his current one.
In 1992, Cortes opened Clarkstown International Collision in Nanuet, New York. What started out as an operation of three people, is now a corporation of 30 employees, and $6.8 Million in sales a year. CIC is one of the largest body shops in the tri-state area and has been featured in Auto Body Repair News, Auto Body News, and Fender Bender Magazine in feature stories about top-performing shops. CIC is an I-CAR Gold Glass certified shop and has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.
In 2017, Cortes founded Gencor Collision Consulting and developed a proprietary software called MyShop Traffic to help body shops streamline their operations. The Gencor team is led by Cortes and his daughters, Melly Bonita and Stephanie Cohen, who both grew up in the body shop business and have spent their professional careers working in corporate sales, marketing and design. They bring a wealth of practice and knowledge from their experience living and working in the family business as well as their years working for large multinational corporations and marketing agencies.
Cortes is an active participant in his community and member of various industry and networking groups including: BASF Performance Group V Members, BNI (Business Network International), and other local groups. Acknowledgements and awards include: Man of the Year 2003 Rockland County NY and Small Business Person of the Year by the Small Business Administration of New York in 2007.
