May 20, 2016—The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) announced Thursday the appointment of its board leadership and the recipients of its Cornerstone Award. 

The 2016-2017 Executive Committee members are:

  • Vice-chair: Melissa Miller, CARSTAR
  • Administrative vice-chair: Jessica Rob, AkzoNobel Coatings Inc.
  • Treasurer: Beverly Rook-Twibell, Safelite Solutions
  • Secretary: Michelle Sullivan, FinishMaster Inc. 
  • Immediate past chair: Denise Caspersen of National Autobody Parts Warehouse Inc.

The board also welcomed new industry representatives Jenny Anderson, Enterprise Rent-A-Car; Denise Kingstrom, BASF; April Lausch, Faulkner Collision Center of Lancaster, and Debbie Menz, Axalta Coating Systems.

“With the addition of 4 new members, the WIN Board of Directors now has 19 members ready to accomplish the goals of our 2016-2017 strategic plan,” said Schroeder. “As an all-volunteer organization, WIN is thankful for the talent and time contributed by each and every board member at all levels of our leadership and from all segments of the collision industry.”

The WIN Cornerstone Award recognizes the efforts of a board member whose actions and contributions demonstrate his or her commitment to the mission and vision of WIN, and set an example for others to follow. The recipients of the award for this year are Shellie Andrew, Dana’s Collision Center-CSN and Katie Henwood. 

“WIN is fortunate to have many diverse talents contributing to the success of this all volunteer organization. This year's WIN Cornerstone's represent a longevity of altruism that reaches beyond just one task or one moment, but many that impact WIN's future, ” Caspersen said. “Over the past six years Katie Henwood has been instrumental in the formulation, execution and success of WIN's main event - the WIN Education Conference. For the many that know Katie, it's her quiet, steady approach that brings strength and calm to WIN. Shellie Andrews, who began her service filling an open seat, serves without hesitation on nearly every WIN committee. Shellie takes on tasks that both fit her skill set and stretch her personal strength. WIN is built by many hands making light work and as WIN continues its growth and engagement, it's the volunteers’ willingness to lend their time and talent that is the force of WIN's future.”
