At this year's AAPEX show in Las Vegas, Women in Auto Care announced its 2022 Women of the Year award winners during the Women in Auto Care Awards ceremony. The Women of the Year awards include the “Auto Care Woman of the Year”, “Auto Care Woman of Excellence”, “Female Shop Owner of the Year” and new this year, “Female Shop Employee of the Year” and “Women in Auto Care Champion of the Year.”

“Each year since the inception of the Women in Auto Care awards, our group of nominations grows exponentially,” Jessica Toliuszis, Chair, Women in Auto Care. “This year, we saw the largest group of finalists Women in Auto Care has ever received. Our judges had the nearly impossible task of awarding only one woman in each category. Adding new accolades, like a shop team member and champion, expands our impact and our ability to celebrate the incredible talent in the automotive aftermarket."

The recipients of the 2022 Women of the Year Awards are as follows: 

  • Auto Care Woman of the Year: Kim Nolan, senior vice president, traditional market, BBB Industries
  • Auto Care Woman of Excellence: Kathleen Long, chief revenue officer, RepairPal
  • Female Shop Owner of the Year: Kristi Hudson, co-owner, Troy Auto Care II
  • Female Shop Employee of the Year: Megan Dineff, manager, Ervine’s Auto Repair & Grand Rapids Hybrid and EV
  • Women in Auto Care Champion of the Year: Tanya Hunt, commercial project manager, BBB Industries

"These women distinguished themselves through their integrity, unselfish commitment, and high level of performance within our industry," Toliuszis notes. "I want to especially acknowledge Rhonda Young from Kukui who sits on our executive committee as our award chair. Behind the scenes, Rhonda works tirelessly to coordinate nominations, applications, interviews, and judging panels. None of this is possible without Rhonda's commitment to elevating our Women in Auto Care community.”
