AkzoNobel Most Influential Women to Be Honored at Atlanta High Museum of Art

AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas has announced the date and location for the by-invitation-only event that will recognize The Most Influential Women in the Collision Repair Industry (MIW) for 2009/2010. The program will be held on April 14, 2010 at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Ga.

“The High Museum of Art is one of the most prestigious institutions of art in the United States, if not the entire world,” said Tim Loden, director of Marketing for AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas. “The uniqueness, character and dignity of this facility are in keeping with the heritage of the MIW program and those that are to be honored. It showcases masterpieces from throughout the ages by individuals that have pursued their passions through the use of creativity, vision and purpose. It is a most appropriate location to present the ‘09/’10 MIW honorees.”

Six honorees are being recognized. They comprise a cross-section of service areas within the collision repair industry including: consulting, distribution, education and quality certification. The honorees are:

• Janet Chaney – Cave Creek Business Development

• Erica Eversman – Vehicle Information Services, Inc.

• Kimberly Hicks – Micro Rim Corp.

• Beth Meckel – Heritage MileOne Collision Centers

• Linda Sommerhauser – Autobody Color Inc.

• Marcy Tieger – Symphony Advisors

In addition to the MIW awards program, AkzoNobel will also debut FIT, the company’s first industry sustainability awards. FIT is an acronym for Focus, Innovation and Talent. These acknowledgements are being developed to advance the use of waterborne technology and promote the unique contributions, which the collision repair industry is taking to generate a sustainable future.
AB Ghosh, general manager for AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas, said when the program was first announced, “The Most Influential Women in the Collision Repair Industry program has become an institutional pillar. FIT will follow in the tradition of MIW.  Our hope is that the FIT awards will be as successful in promoting the reduction of the carbon footprint of our industry as MIW has been in advancing the contributions of a valuable talent and resource pool.”
