MICHauto Recognizes Dennis Hoeg as Volunteer of the Year

Dennis Hoeg, vice president and North America division president of Nexteer Automotive, was awarded the MICHauto Volunteer of the Year during the 2021 State of Automobility event. Each year MICHauto recognizes one person as its Volunteer of the Year. That person is someone who has consistently demonstrated our mission to promote, retain, and grow the automobility industry across the state of Michigan.

Hoeg is responsible for Nexteer’s North America business, and he is also a member of the company’s Global Strategy Council. Glenn Stevens Jr., executive director of MICHauto, presented Hoeg with the award in person during a social distanced ceremony at Nexteer Automotive.

“Dennis has been an integral part of our MICHauto Board of Directors and an outstanding voice for our industry,” said Stevens. “We appreciate his efforts, especially during this last year, in advocating for safe return to work in the face of a pandemic.

“I am humbled by the award because this is what we do in the industry,” said Hoeg during the ceremony. “It has been a crazy year, but it also shows how resilient the industry is, especially the people. What they have been able to accomplish is amazing.”

Hoeg also outlined his vision for the future, “We remain focused on making Michigan the center of the mobility industry.”

As the industry takes meaningful steps towards becoming more diverse, equitable, and inclusive, Hoeg has been at the forefront of that change as one of the founding members of the CEO Coalition for Change. Hoeg has been a leader across all of MICHauto’s pillars of engagement, from CEO Convening and Talent to Advocacy and New Mobility.

“He has shown leadership in being a founding member of the CEO Coalition for Change, as the industry takes meaningful steps towards a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce and community,” said Stevens.

Congratulations, Dennis.
