NACE 2001: Akzo Nobel Tabs Most Influential Women

Since 1999, Akzo Nobel has recognized the Most Influential Women in the Collision Repair Industry — and used the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) as a launching pad to showcase their picks to the world.

The influential women in the collision repair industry are not in it to be role models or win awards. Which is exactly why Akzo Nobel sponsors the program which gives these often overlooked but extremely talented and successful women some long-overdue recognition.

A large assortment of nominations pour in each year, representing various segments of the collision repair industry. From this pool, a panel chooses an elite group of women as the Most Influential in the Collision Repair Industry.

This year’s pack were announced at dinner event held at Postrio, a restaurant located in Las Vegas’s Venetian Hotel. They include:

* Jan Anderson, Co-Owner, Anderson’s Automotive Service Center, Sheffield, Ohio

* Rachelle Breault, Vice President, Crown Collision Center, Pawtucket, Rhode Island

* Laurie Carlson, Owner, Lukas Auto Painting And Repair, Portland, Oregon

* Michelle Franklin, Operations Manager, Sports & Imports, Atlanta, Georgia

* Natalie Kessler, Founder, Masters Autobody School of Management, Santa Barbara, California

* Margaret Knell, Manager of Corporate Administration, I-CAR, Rolling Meadows, Illinois

* Debbie Pryor, Operations Manager, Mike’s Auto Body, Concord, California

Akzo Nobel will profile each of the women in its own publication, Profit Magazine.
