Get to know us – before you choose a body shop – we’re the people behind our local, independent family business.
“We want to understand your wants and needs – and – we want you to be comfortable with your choice of shop. I invite you to look around before you choose us.”
Camille Eber, Second Generation Owner and President
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an affinity for cars and my family has been in the business of repairing auto body damaged vehicles, from minor fender benders to major collisions, so it’s no wonder I took over the family business in 1989.
I am an Accredited Automotive Manager through the Automotive Management Institute and a Certified Collision Repair Manager through the Masters School of Autobody Management. I am also ASE certified and I-CAR trained – our shop was the first in Portland to achieve the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals designation which we have maintained each year since 1991.
I actively participate in autobody industry organizations and keep up-to-date on issues that affect my industry and the repairs we undertake each day.
I was a contributing editor for 10 years with “Automotive Body Repair News” where I wrote articles from the perspective of the shop owner.
I’ve been a guest speaker at the International Autobody Congress & Exposition speaking on topics such as, Family Business, Successful Shop Ownership, and Online Marketing.
We have been supporting members of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) since 1977, we have an A+ rating and have been honored with the BBB award for business integrity.
Outside of work I’m passionate about ballet classes, alpine skiing, being active outdoors, gardening and reading – I’ve been fortunate to be in a book group with the same women since 1992.
April of 2012, after having worked with me for many years, I brought William in as a co-owner.
Camille & William
William Bray, Third Generation Owner and Operations Manager
I inherited the “car genes” that my grandfather Jim and Aunt Camille have. I started hanging around at the auto body shop with Aunt Camille doing various tasks when I was about 10 years old.
I’d like to help you with any vehicle-related question you may have from what your options are for that annoying door ding to what to wax your vehicle with. I’ve owned over 65 cars – I’m kind of crazy about them. If it’s vehicle related, I’m your go-to guy.
I am an Accredited Automotive Manager through the Automotive Management Institute and am ASE-certified and I-CAR trained. I attend training opportunities thorough-out the year to keep my skills and knowledge-base honed. I keep up-to-date on issues that affect my industry and the repairs we undertake each day.
In my youth I had an encounter that sticks like glue and changed my life (and perhaps that of others). I was pulled over in 2000 for street racing and the officer gave me an option to avoid the ticket. He said “Help me find a way to give kids and others an outlet for their street racing activities.” With his help, I was instrumental in organizing a weekend race program aimed at young drivers at Portland International Raceway (PIR) called “Late Night Drags,” a program that is still running. In appreciation for my involvement in developing this program, I received the “Community Policing Problem-Solving Award” from the Portland Police Bureau. I’m not proud of my street-racing past, but I am thankful to Portland Police Officer David Sessum and proud of what he helped me accomplish – bringing racing off the street and into a safe outlet like PIR.
Outside of work I’m into driving, snowboarding, playing interactive video games, date night with my wife and spending time with our families.

Jim Eber :: circa 1945
Jim is Camille’s dad. He had the car gene from the get go. He served in the U.S. Army, was stationed in Japan and served the automotive division from 1947 to 1949. To learn more about Jim during his years as owner of Roth & Miller Autobody, take a look at our history.
Jim Eber :: 2008
Jim currently likes to socialize with long-time colleagues, friends and family. He especially enjoys a hand or two of pinochle. He can be seen socializing at the Columbia Grange Hall and Corbett Country Market in Corbett, Oregon. And, there’s a chance you could run into him here.
