Posted on August 27, 2010

Patricia Ziska, Motor Coach Industries (MCI) vice president and chief customer officer, is the recipient of the 2010 Alliance Partner of the Year award by International Motor Coach Group (IMG). 

IMG announced the award Aug. 7 at its annual Strategic Alliance Meeting. Ziska was chosen by IMG members as this year’s recipient of the yearly award from among her industry peers. The award honors Alliance members that have demonstrated exceptional service and commitment to the industry and especially to IMG members.

“IMG recognized Pat for her support of our organization, her leadership role in forming the Motorcoach Council and the commitment she has to the industry as a whole,” said Steve Klika, President of IMG. “She and her MCI team are engaged in every aspect of IMG. She is a great friend to us and to the industry. We appreciate her commitment and leadership.”

IMG is composed of nearly 60 independent charter-and-tour companies. The owners/shareholders of IMG operate more than 7,000 vehicles in North America. IMG members have a reputation for being leaders in the industry.

“We’re very honored to have Pat singled out for the award,” said MCI's President/CEO Tom Sorrells. “She goes the extra mile for each and every MCI coach owner and is trusted by all. She greatly deserves the honor, and we extend our congratulations to her.”
