Owner of ChipsAway Exeter, Brandon Akerman, is celebrating after being presented with the Bodyshop Magazine’s ‘30 under 30 Rising Stars of 2021’ award at the Bodyshop Awards dinner in April 2022.
Brandon received this highly coveted award at the annual event, which took place at the ICC Wales, accompanied by Franchise Support Manager, Annabel Wilson, Technical Director, Simon Kings and Brandon’s family.
Entrepreneur Brandon, joined the ChipsAway network in September 2020, aged just 21. Within the space of only six months Brandon had developed his mobile car body repair business into a thriving ChipsAway Car Care Centre workshop, taking on an employee to help him achieve his aspirations for the future.
The Bodyshop Magazine 30 under 30: Rising Stars award celebrates 30 inspirational individuals who have achieved something special in their sector and who are earmarked for future success.
Owner of ChipsAway Exeter, Brandon Akerman said:
“Winning this award means everything to me. I put a lot of hard work and time into my business and sometimes it feels like you are not getting anywhere, so to achieve something like this just gives you that extra edge to push ahead again. A year ago, I didn’t think I would have what I have now, let alone win such a prestigious award. So, it just shows you can really achieve anything and at my age, the sky is the limit.”
“It was fantastic to see so many other young men and women receiving their awards and I hope that winning this award will inspire more people of my age to consider a career in the collision repair industry.”
Bodyshop Magazine Editor, Simon Wait said:
“Congratulations to all of this year’s fantastic 30 Under 30 award winners. Once again, this is an impressive group of young people which we believe places the future of our industry in safe hands.”

I’m absolutely thrilled with the way my business is going. I wanted something flexible, that was not massively expensive and which had the potential for growth. ChipsAway fit the bill and has proved to be everything I’d hoped for. ‘It does what it says on the tin’, and if you follow the business model you can’t go wrong!Andy Cornell, franchisee since 2011
I could see the flexibility of ChipsAway’s business model would work for me. Working for myself as a franchisee is a world away from my life before.Neil Dobson, franchisee since 2013
