The Women’s Industry Network annually honors women whose career achievements have enhanced the collision repair industry.

In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8, the Women’s Industry Network (WIN) announced the recipients of its 2024 Most Influential Women (MIW) awards, honoring women whose career achievements have enhanced the collision repair industry.

Eight remarkable women will be recognized as new MIWs this year at a gala to be held during WIN’s 2024 Annual Conference, themed "Dream Out Loud," set for May 6-8 at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, CA.

The recipients of the 2024 MIW awards are:

  • Jenny Anderson, director, North American customer success, Entegral powered by Enterprise
    Lori Barrington, vice president, delivery, I-CAR
    Kathy Coffey, national key accounts manager, AkzoNobel

    Jamie Shackelford, director, sales enablement and industry intelligence, Caliber Collision
    Chelsea Stebner, CEO and managing partner, Parr Auto Body
    Kayla Williams-Clark, vice president, business development, Classic Collision

Honoring its 25th anniversary, the Most Influential Women honor was established in 1999 to recognize women whose leadership, vision and commitment to excellence have enriched the collision repair industry. Winners are chosen by an independent selection committee comprised of industry professionals, which reviews nominees and selects award recipients based on established criteria, such as industry influence, professional accomplishments, mentorship and community service.

With the addition of this year’s MIWs, well over 100 women have now been recognized by WIN for their contributions to the collision repair industry and their respective communities.

“These industry professionals serve as shining examples of the array of opportunities that are available in collision repair, as well as a testament to the positive impact that women can have in this and all other fields,” said Rachel Hinson, MIW Committee chair. “Through their dedication to excellence, commitment to community and investment in the future through their willingness to mentor other women, these extraordinary women have made a huge impact on the collision repair industry -- and we can’t wait to celebrate them at this year’s conference!”

Registration is now open and conference attendees will experience three days of collision repair industry learning, mentorship, celebration and community giveback. The event will celebrate women in collision repair by acknowledging new scholarships, taking part in scholarship fundraising options, all in addition to acknowledging this year’s Most Influential Women recipients. For those not able to attend in person, there is also a hybrid, online version available. To register for the conference and view the agenda, click here.
