2018 Induction Ceremony


Distinguished Service Citation

The Automotive Hall of Fame will also honor Mr. Steven Kiefer, Senior Vice President Global Purchasing and Supply Chain at General Motors, with its Distinguished Service Citation. Mr. Kiefer will be honored for his work to end distracted driving through the Kiefer Foundation. The foundation was created founded to honor Kiefer’s son, Mitchel who was tragically killed in an auto crash caused by a distracted driver.

We invite the Celebrated Alumni, those Inductees who are celebrating milestone induction anniversaries, to help welcome this year’s Inductee class into the Automotive Hall of Fame.
