Denver, Colorado — May 30, 2017 — The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) has presented three women with “Most Influencial Women” awards, as well as one woman with a Cornerstone Award.
The Most Influential Women award is given annually to women in the collision repair industry who exemplify qualities of business and civic leadership, vision and commitment to excellence. This year’s winners were Cristina Fronzaglia-Murray, PPG; Renee Ricciotti, 3M Automotive Aftermarket; Elizabeth Stein, Assured Performance Network.
Given every year, the WIN Cornerstone Award recognizes the efforts of a board member whose actions and unique contributions demonstrate their commitment to the WIN mission and vision, and set an example for others to follow. This year it was awarded to Jessica Rob of AkzoNobel.
The MIW and Cornerstone awards line up with WIN’s mission to “enhance the role of women in the industry.” For 19 years, the MIW award has recognized over 80 women for their professional accomplishments and for going beyond requirements of their positions to give back to their communities. “These amazing women have not only excelled within their own companies, but have been a positive influence within the industry and their local communities. It was an honour to celebrate with these women who continue to elevate this industry and lead by example,” said Cheryl Boswell, Chief Financial Officer at DCR Systems.
“Having been with WIN since its inception in 2006, it is wonderful to see first-hand how the MIW program has evolved and grown and how perfectly it aligns with WIN’s mission to ‘enhance the role of women in the industry.’ The diversity of every nominee’s talent and industry involvement is amazing. Congratulation again to Cristina, Renee and Elizabeth for winning this prestigious award,” said Petra Schroeder, WIN Chair.
On the Cornerstone recipient this year, Schroeder said, “This year’s WIN Cornerstone represents the very basis of WIN’s all-volunteer Board. Jessica joined WIN in 2011 and dug right in from the beginning. She was elected to the Board in 2014 and since then, has actively shared her time and talent by sitting on various committees, including co-chairing the Communications, Conference and Nominating Committees. Jessica’s organizational and people skills are evidenced by her attentiveness to deadlines and willingness to lend a hand wherever needed.”
