Tim Nickel Honored for Role in Returnable Containers Call to Action

AIAG, a not-for-profit, member-supported organization that has developed a unique, collaborative approach to help companies and their suppliers tackle problems, uncover opportunities and create value, is honoring Philip Marlow of Visteon Corporation with a lifetime achievement award, along with 15 other volunteers from automakers and suppliers. Each honoree has made significant contributions to the industry’s success, and they will be honored by their peers tonight at a celebration at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Mich.

“There are literally hundreds of noncompetitive areas where OEMs and suppliers – working collaboratively – can drive significant improvements in cost, quality and customer satisfaction,” said J. Scot Sharland, AIAG executive director. “Phil and the other AIAG volunteers we are honoring come from companies across the industry, and they have proven that teamwork and collaboration are the best ways to tackle industry pain points and find hidden opportunities.”

Marlow, a product information manager at Visteon, has been associated with AIAG for 12 years and has served on numerous work groups and committees in that time.

Among the other 15 volunteers honored is Tim Nickel, global manager of packaging engineering, Visteon Corporation, for his role in the Returnable Containers Call to Action.
