MARYSVILLE – Two of Honda’s automotive manufacturing leaders in Ohio and Canada were recognized among the 100 Leading Women in the North American Auto Industry by Automotive News.

Gail May, Performance Manufacturing Center division manager at Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., and Susan Kenny, engine plant manager at Honda of Canada Mfg., received the honors after a months-long nomination and judging process that attracted hundreds of entries from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Kenny leads more than 500 associates in the day-to-day operations for engine production and works to ensure HCM is prepared for the next generation of powertrain products.
