In recent, the company has been broadly publicized within the collision repair industry as their new technologies gain industry attention from all over the world, appearing in many print, online and video publications.
“I’m energized by the opportunity to join Tradiebot during this crucial moment in our industry. The prevalence of Advanced Driver Assist Systems, increased use of composite materials and the ever-increasing need for qualified technicians has created a perfect storm for our industry. Now more than ever, repair procedures, tools and equipment need to be as technologically advanced as the systems that have been damaged, and Tradiebot’s Augmented and Virtual Reality solutions are more than equal to the task.
I am excited to join CEO, Mario Dimovski and partners for this incredible opportunity and look forward to working closely with their talented team to introduce Tradiebot’s immersive training technology to the North American market.”
Beth Rutter earned her B.A. degree at the University of Calgary and is a 20 + year collision industry professional specializing in post-secondary education programs and digital training environments.
Her current role for a United States based Pilot Program, has allowed her to match her technical background with her successful leadership skills by building a mentorship program that supports entry level technicians in the workforce, while they earn their degrees at college.
She currently serves on the Collision Industry Conference’s Education and Training Committee, and Talent Pool Committee, as well as the Scholarship Committee at the Women’s Industry Network where she is currently building a mentorship program for young female scholarship winners.
With a focus on advancing technologies for the collision repair industry and training programs within schools, Beth was a very suited candidate to drive the Tradiebot early roll out into the market and forming relations with key industry bodies, collision groups, education providers and OEMs.

Dimovski went on to say, “Over the past 2 years I have made several trips to the USA, taking part in industry events and building our network of like-minded business associates with a shared interest in digital transformation within the collision repair industry. These relationships have formed a solid foundation for the introduction of our augmented and virtual reality technology solutions to the North American market and these solutions will have a huge impact on the way training and information is delivered in the near future in not only collision facilities but also training centers and schools.”
