Delphi’s Mary Gustanski Earns Quality Leader Award from American Society for Quality


AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Delphi’s Mary Gustanski, Powertrain Systems’ director for Engineering, Customer Satisfaction, Program Management and Operations, has received the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Automotive Division’s 2008 Quality Leader of the Year Award.

The award was presented during the ASQ Automotive Division annual conference held at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Mich., on June 23, 2009.

According to ASQ, the Quality Leader of the Year Award is presented annually to recognize the quality leadership contributions of an outstanding automotive industry leader who is not a member of the quality profession. The recipient will be an executive who has consistently demonstrated a customer-focused quality philosophy and a defect-prevention oriented vision that is universally applied to every aspect of the business.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized among the top quality leaders of the automotive industry,” said Gustanski in accepting the award. “Quality leadership must be the over-riding governance goal in all that we do. And, especially during this difficult economic time, we cannot afford to lose our focus on quality.”

Gustanski has more than 29 years of service with Delphi. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering as well as a master’s degree in Manufacturing Management from Kettering University (formerly GMI). In her award nomination, first-time quality, customer focus, and operational effectiveness were cited as stand-out examples of her commitment to quality.

“In addition to her competencies in quality, operations and engineering, Gustanski’s leadership skills and ability to deliver results and motivate people give her a wonderful combination of leadership skills,” said Delphi Powertrain Systems President Ron Pirtle.
