Automotive News’ inaugural list of notable industry veterans features 15 people who served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines who are making a difference in the auto industry. They were chosen by a panel of Automotive News editors and reporters from nominations submitted by our readers. The honorees work in all corners of the industry. Many of them help other veterans transition to civilian life. There’s one common trait among them — they tap the wisdom and experience gained from their time in the military to help solve today’s auto industry challenges.
