The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) opened nominations for the prestigious 2021 Most Influential Women (MIW) awards on Tuesday, Dec. 1. Nominations will be accepted through Monday, Jan. 25. Nominations of women working in any segment of the collision repair industry across the United States and Canada are welcomed.
These women are not required to be WIN members to be nominated.
“We are excited that we have modified the process to make it easier to nominate those amazing women you work with in this industry. This is a great way to bring honor to someone you know who has contributed to the collision industry,” says Kathy Mello, WIN MIW committee co-chair and 2019 MIW honoree.
“Our business has strong women leaders who influence our industry and their communities. They motivate and inspire people by making a difference,” added Marie Peevy, WIN MIW committee co-chair and 2018 MIW honoree.
Since its inception in 1999, the Most Influential Women program has recognized more than 100 women who have enriched the collision repair industry with their leadership, vision and commitment to excellence. The MIW program supports WIN’s mission of “driving the future of collision repair by attracting, developing, and advancing women.”
In 2020 WIN honored three leading women in the collision repair industry with the MIW award:
• Kristle Bollans, Director, Replacement Accounts, The Hertz Corporation
• Sandee Lindorfer, Customer Experience, Strategy and Design Outside Auto Director, Allstate Insurance
• Christy Jones, Owner of R Jones Collision 1
