Summer, 2005: 'Mend it Man' Brady Lander ('02) Owner, Brady's Auto Body, Inc. - Vancouver, Washington. Brady Lander bought his Vancouver, Wash. Auto Body shop before he even had graduated from Warner Pacific.

Brady Lander ('02) has never considered himself a corporate man. In 2001, when he was studying business at Warner Pacific, he arranged an internship with a mom-and-pop auto body shop in his hometown of Vancouver, WA, specifically to learn about running a small business. Lander proved such a quick study that at the end of the internship, the owners offered to sell him their business on contract so they could enjoy a long-awaited retirement. Lander crafted a business plan and asked his father, Vancouver-based accountant Phil Lander ('72), to become a silent business partner. Brady's Auto Body was born. "I look back and I think I've only been doing it for months and it's been three years," said Lander, 24. "I feel old."

Bootstrap marketing: Unlike the previous owners, who depended solely on word-of-mouth for business, Lander has put plenty of effort into marketing the business, especially through direct mailings. And the effort is paying off. He currently has ten employees and more business than his current shop can handle. He recently secured financing to construct a 13,000 square-foot shop that will open just down the road in November. He plans to stock it with entirely new equipment, as well. "I think it's less risky to own my own business because I control my future," Lander said. "My business is going to grow or it's going to die depending upon what I do. The biggest advertisers are the people who have gotten their cars fixed and are happy."

Although Lander has learned plenty about operating a business, he wasn't a stranger to the tools of the auto body trade. He and his father restore hot rods as a hobby. His studies at Warner Pacific helped round out the business theory he needed to turn his love of cars into a viable business. "The Business professors taught us the basics," Lander said. "I use human resources, marketing, finances. I use everything we were taught."

A matter of money: Lander says the practical aspects of running the business haven't been that difficult. Securing financing for his new shop, however, put his business sense to the test. "I wrote the business plan and brought it to a bank," Lander said. "If you can show someone what your vision is and how you're going to pay them back, they're willing to loan you the money. It's cost-risk analysis for them too."

Lander's ultimate goal is to turn more of the day-to-day operations over to his employees so he can spend more time with his wife Tana (Teague, '02) and one-year-old daughter, Taylor. He easily puts in 65 hours a week running the shop now. "I'm not looking to get rich," Lander said. "I want to make a good living for my family. With anything, you have to step out on a limb and surround yourself with good people to help you."
