The Professionals at Bailey Brothers Collision Repair

Participating Memberships


Herby Fessler, Owner Manager

Like the Bailey brothers, Herby Fessler has built a career in the automotive industry. In 1977, Herby started to work in an automotive service center and continued in that businesses until 1993 when he changed jobs and began work in the body shop of a collision repair center. In 2000, when the Bailey brothers purchased the collision repair center in Brookfield, they tapped Herby to become the Shop Manager.

In January 2017, Herby purchased the company from the Bailey brothers.  He continues to oversee the day-to-day operations of Bailey Brothers Collision Repair as an active owner-manager.  Herby, a past member of I-CAR, is active in the community and represents the business at the Brookfield Chamber of Commerce. He and his wife, Billie Jo, live in Brookfield, where they raised five children.

Customer Support and Service Technicians

Vance Meissen, Color Technician
Color matching requires a knowledge of the automotive paint industry, along with lots of insider secrets from the car manufacturer. Vance has the knowledge and years of experience to provide the 'just-off-the-showroom' finish to every truck and car that leaves Bailey Brothers Collision Repair.

Jareme Varner, Parts Expediter
Superior customer service centers on having the right parts for each car available when they are needed and this is Jareme's focus. His attention to detail makes sure that parts are ordered correctly and placed in the body shop on schedule so your truck or car is finished on time.

Brennen Neal, Metal Technician
Following three years training at the Grand River Technical School, Brennen joins Bailey Brothers Collision Repair to begin his career under the watchful eyes of our experienced staff. New to the business, he is a 'local' that brings a commitment to the community and a willingness to put to work the latest techniques in collision repair he learned in school.

Garrett Hedrick, Detailer
One of us locals -- Marceline is home -- Garrett makes sure your vehicle is clean and shining before you arrive to pick it up. While he's learning the business, he is taking charge of making sure your vehicle leaves us with no tell-tale signs of sanding, painting and polishing -- except for the showroom finish inside and outside.

Bailey Brothers Collision Repair . . . Nearly Four Decades in North-Central Missouri

Automobile and truck repair at the Bailey Brothers Collision Repair location has been part of Brookfield and surrounding communities in north-central Missouri for nearly 40 years. The company was originally part of Smith Motor Company. In 2000, the Bailey Brothers -- Bill, Danny, and Jerry, born and raised in St. Catherine, returned home to purchase the collision repair company from Smith Motor Company.

When making the purchase, the brothers hired Herby Fessler, as the manager of the new enterprise. Herby managed the day-to-day operations of Bailey Brothers Collision Repair until January 2017, when he purchased the company from the brothers.
