We all need a reason to celebrate right now, and the stories of the women who fill the pages of the May issue of AMN magazine will certainly make you want to raise a glass.

AMN, Counterman, and Babcox Media are so proud to present the inaugural 2020 class of Women at the Wheel, a tribute to the women who are making a difference in the automotive aftermarket today.

This year’s class includes 30 women who are leading, influencing, and thriving in what historically has been a male-dominated field. We opened the nomination process to women who work at all levels of the aftermarket – “from the boardroom to the breakroom” – and we were delighted by the number, and quality, of the nominations that were submitted. We were so thrilled to have more than 115 nominations for Women at the Wheel in our first year.

In creating this issue, our focus was on celebrating and shining a spotlight on the incredible women you are about to meet, who have been blazing a trail for themselves in the aftermarket and carving out a well-lit path for generations to come. It is an honor to share their stories with you. Let us know what you think.
