AkzoNobel Announces 2012 Recipients of Most Influential Women in Collision Repair Industry Award

Winners will be honored at by-invitation-only awards ceremony July 19, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas.

AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings Americas (A&AC) has announced the recipients of the 2012 Most Influential Women in the Collision Repair Industry (MIW) award. The by-invitation-only awards program, which occurs annually, will be held on July 19, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas in conjunction with the I-CAR Inter-Industry Conference and Collision Industry Conference (CIC)

The 2012 MIW award recipients follow in the footsteps of past honorees holding leadership positions within the industry association, shop operation and service sectors of the U.S. and Canadian collision repair industry. They were selected for their contributions to the organizations they represent, the collision industry at large and their respective communities. They are:

• Kim Parsons – president, Automotive Collision Technologies Inc. – Randallstown, Md.
• Catherine Mills – executive director, Florida Autobody Collision Alliance – Orange Park, Fla.
• Kim Roberts – manager, Fix Auto – Barrie, Ontario

“The collision repair industry’s collective strength, image and long-term sustainability is dependent on individuals who have a passion, a vision and a vested interest in its future,” said Margret Kleinsman, general manager for AkzoNobel A&AC Americas. “The leaders we’re honoring with this prestigious award all share these qualities and are among the top tier of those who continue to make this a vital industry.”

The MIW program was established in 1998 by AkzoNobel to both recognize and promote the contributions of key leaders representing a valuable resource pool for the collision repair industry. The MIW program also enables scholarships, administered through I-CAR, to be provided to deserving women seeking to advance their education and pursue career opportunities within the collision repair industry. Over MIW’s 14-year history, 69 women have received MIW awards.
