After reviewing nominations and interviewing a number of talented women, four industry leaders were selected to receive MIW honors:
• Shelly Bickett: Director, Co-Founder of Fix Auto USA and Owner of nine Fix Auto Collision Repair Shops in California
• Mary Mahoney: Vice President - Insurance Replacement Division, Enterprise Holdings, Inc.
• Marie Peevy: Owner, Automotive Training Coordinators, LLC
• Petra Schroeder: Collisionista
The Most Influential Women award was established in 1999 to recognize the achievements of women in the collision repair industry. Since then, more than 80 women have been recognized for their contributions to the industry.
“This year’s recipients exemplify the meaning of ‘Most Influential.’ All four women have been a positive force in the collision repair industry and their local communities. While reaching new professional milestones, they continued to mentor and support others. We are looking forward to celebrating with them during the WIN Educational Conference in May. Congratulations!” said Cheryl Boswell, Chief Financial Officer at DCR Systems, LLC, a 2015 MIW Honoree and Co-Chair of the 2018 MIW Committee.
The 2018 winners will be celebrated at a gala on May 8, during the 2018 WIN Educational Conference in Indianapolis, IN.
