May 17, 2016—The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) celebrated Michelle Sullivan, winner of the 2016 Most Influential Women award, during the 10th Annual Educational Conference in Tampa, Fla., on May 3.
The Most Influential Women award is given to women in the collision repair industry who exemplify qualities of business and civic leadership, vision, and a commitment to excellence.
“The 2016 MIW nominees highlighted the geographic, functional and sector diversity of women who are influencing the collision repair industry today,” said Sandra Herron, owner of MiddlEdge, Inc., which was chosen as a third-party entity to select this year’s honoree. “I was inspired by each nominee’s industry involvement, professional accomplishments, mentoring of others and community service. Michelle’s record of creating value for companies, developing industry talent, and championing charitable causes in her community stood out as exemplary.”
“The MIW Award recipients reflect well-rounded profiles of achievement in their jobs, their communities and in the collision repair industry. Michelle not only fits, but exceeds this description,” WIN’s chair Petra Schroeder said. “She also recognizes that, as women, we have the ability and responsibility to support each other to achieve greater heights and to nurture others in the industry at the same time. That’s exactly what Michelle does; she has long mentored fellow females and students. We are very fortunate to draw on her time and talent on the WIN board.”
