AkzoNobel Exec to Speak at WIN Conference
April 8, 2014—AkzoNobel’s North American director of vehicle refinishes, Doug Holmberg, has been announced as one of the speakers at the 2014 Women’s Industry Network Educational Conference to be held May 5–7 at Paradise Point in San Diego.
Holmberg will address attendees during the Awards Gala, where the Most Influential Women (MIW) awards for the collision repair industry will be presented.
This is the first year that the MIW awards will be handed out by WIN. The annual program was created by AkzoNobel in 1998 and the awards were traditionally handed out at the International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE) since 1999.
“On behalf of AkzoNobel, we are extremely pleased that this pioneering program will now be sustained under the extraordinary leadership of the WIN organization,” said Holmberg. “Some of our earliest MIW award recipients were catalyst in helping form the foundation of WIN, so it is only fitting that this ground-breaking awards program be led by those who have benefited, are stakeholders and have a vested interest in its long-term success and growth.”
