Automotive News Europe (ANE) recognized Pasquale Abruzzese, Vice President of Worldwide Integrated Supply Chain for Honeywell Transportation Systems, as a “Rising Star” in the European auto industry. This new award honors the best and brightest in the automotive industry and is an opportunity for the magazine to honor automotive executives who are currently in middle and upper management and are likely to become senior and C-suite leaders.
According to the magazine, “They are the trendspotters and entrepreneurs who stand to reap the biggest rewards over the next decade; they are the individuals rising through the ranks and climbing the career ladder.”
“You’re only as good as the people who work for you,” said Abruzzese. “I strive every day to make sure the team I have is full of top talent and that I recognize and promote them so they remain challenged and motivated.”
Abruzzese was part of the inaugural group of Rising Stars and accepted his award, together with 27 other recipients, at a gala dinner held in the group’s honor at the 14th annual Automotive News Europe Congress. This event, held in Cologne, Germany, is the most important English language automotive industry conference in Europe.
