WIN Announces 2020 Most Influential Women Award Winners


The 2020 honorees for the Most Influential Women award, presented to those women who have notable achievements in the collision repair industry throughout their career, have been announced by Women’s Industry Network (WIN.)

Since 1999, more than 90 women have been recognized for their contributions to the collision repair industry.


After the review of many worthy applicants, WIN has chosen three industry leaders to receive the MIW honors:


  • Kristle Bollans, director of replacement accounts, Hertz Corporation 
  • Sandee Lindorfer, customer experience, strategy and design outside auto director, Allstate Insurance
  • Christy Jones, owner, R Jones Collision 1


"It is an honor to recognize these three women this year as the Most Influential Women in the collision repair industry,” said Marie Peevy, president of Automotive Training Coordinators, a 2018 MIW honoree and co-chair of the 2020 MIW committee. “They are strong women who support other women and are passionate about what they do. They have the ability to dream and transform while helping others in the industry, their communities and families."


A collision industry veteran for 13 years, Bollans received the Hertz Leadership Award---the most coveted and prestigious award one can receive at the Hertz Corporation---in 2011, 2012 and 2013.


At Hertz, she considers it her duty and No. 1 responsibility to train, develop and mentor others within the business.


Bollans serves on the National Auto Body Board Council, the WIN planning committee and the scholarship selection committee for CREF. She is very passionate about empowering women in all aspects of life. She is also a committee member of W.I.L.D.E.R (Women Inspiring Leaders, Driving Execution and Results.)


From a community standpoint, Bollans sits on the Nurturing Committee at her church, volunteers at the Homeless Support Service program, has led giving campaigns to the National Cancer Society and the ASPCA and volunteers her time as 4-K Sunday school teacher.
