Fiat's Laura Soave Receives Helle Nice Award

Laura Soave, Head of Fiat Brand North America, has received another award. This time it is the Hellé Nice Foundation's award for "pushing boundaries" for women in the automotive industry.


Hellé Nice was a French auto racing legend and pioneer of women making a career in professional motorsports. Piloting mostly cars from Bugatti and Alfa, she ran over 100 races, set a female speed record in 1929, and set closed course endurance records that still stand. In 1930, she made an unprecedented 18-event tour of American race tracks. You can read more about Hellé Nice and the foundation started in her honor here.

This past year, Laura Soave has been honored with the La Bellissima America” (America the Beautiful) award presented by the Italian American Museum and Women's Automotive Association International's 2011 Spirit of Leadership Award.


I'd like to congratulate Ms.Soave on another well deserved award!
