Modine Manufacturing Company has been recognized as a 2020 Women on Boards Winning 'W' Company for 2015. Modine was selected for this recognition because of its commitment to having a diverse Board of Directors, with 20% or more seats held by women. Modine is one of just 664 companies in the United States to meet the criteria set by the organization. Modine's distinguished Board of Directors includes Marsha C. Williams and Christine Y. Yan.
