BorgWarner’s Tania Wingfield, Vice President and General Manager of the North American Aftermarket, has been selected as a recipient of the 2022 Women in Manufacturing Science, Technology, Engineering and Production (STEP) Ahead Award, an annual recognition by the Manufacturing Institute (MI). This annual award honors and showcases the stories of women who exemplify leadership in their career, the manufacturing industry and their community. Wingfield is the sixth consecutive BorgWarner employee to be awarded this recognition and is one of 100 inspiring women to earn the 2022 award. 

With over 25 years of automotive experience, Wingfield has established herself as a seasoned veteran in the industry, motivating and inspiring others with her passion for manufacturing. She joined BorgWarner in 2016 through the company’s acquisition of Remy  International and has since spearheaded the company’s acquisition of Delphi Technologies in 2020, the largest and most complex acquisition in BorgWarner’s history.

She served as Vice President and Integration Champion from the announcement of the deal in February 2020 through November 2021. Throughout the acquisition and integration of Delphi Technologies, Wingfield demonstrated her poise as she led a seamless and effective process. Even more impressively, she did so during a global pandemic where she was forced to pivot and adapt months of scheduled face-to-face workshops and meetings to virtual events, including leading 13 workstreams of more than 300 individuals through the final transaction close.

BorgWarner to support women

Wingfield is an executive sponsor of the Women in Leadership (WIL) program at BorgWarner, which supports women and helps them build their careers by coming together to network, share their experiences and learn from one another. BorgWarner was also recognized on Forbes’ list of World’s Top Female Friendly Companies.

Wingfield also participates in and previously acted as a mentor in the company’s Women Rising program, which aims to help women with self-awareness in the early stages of their careers. Additionally, she is an active member of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and has taken time within her career to participate as a presenter in industry forums dedicated to supporting women within manufacturing, including the Women Driving Forward event.
