– The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) announced today that Senior Vice President Trish Serratore has been selected by Automotive News as one of the “100 leading women in the North American auto industry.” She will be profiled in a special section publishing in September.

Serratore was selected after a long judging process from several hundred nominations of impressive women in the industry. A diverse selection committee, including people inside and outside Automotive News, scrutinized the nomination forms and, after much debate, honed the list to 100 people. Automotive News will publish this special section, “100 Leading Women in the North American Auto Industry,” on September 13. In addition, Automotive News will host a reception honoring the women at the Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit on September 21st.

“I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this recognition than Trish,” said Tim Zilke, ASE President & CEO. “Her service to both ASE and the automotive industry at large has been and continues to be outstanding, and the entire team here at ASE salutes her achievement.”
