DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 18, 2004)/PRNewswire/--The Daytona Beach Advertising Federation (DBAF) today announced its 2004-2005 Board of Directors. Among the newly appointed directors is Todd Hayes, founder and president of RepairOne®, a rapidly-growing independent automotive repair service center based in central Florida. As a director, Hayes will bring his passion for advertising and business expertise to the board of DBAF, which was awarded National Club of the Year for 2003-2004 by the American Advertising Federation.
"As the president and founder of a successful, multi-million dollar company, Todd has a unique perspective of advertising in a competitive retail environment,” said Michael Benedict, Daytona Beach Advertising Federation past President. "The board asked Todd to serve on its advisory committee, and we expect he will make a great addition to an already strong board.”
Hayes provides long-range vision, sets a strategic focus, and spearheads the growth of RepairOne®. In 1986, Hayes founded Mobile Car Care, a chain of auto repair service centers, leading the company through its start-up and expansion, and quickly growing it into one of the most successful of its kind.

Since forming RepairOne® Automotive Concepts, L.L.C, Hayes’ second auto repair and service concept, he has led the company through its first stage of a nationwide rollout, including developing and executing its award-winning marketing campaign. RepairOne® is the first automotive repair service center to receive two DBAF ADDY® awards with no agency representation.
