DEARBORN — Lizabeth Ardisana, CEO and co-founder of ASG Renaissance has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
The award is presented annually to an individual who has made substantial contributions to the Hispanic business community. Ardisana’s leadership and diplomacy has helped to make the chamber a leading economic development entity for Hispanic companies throughout Michigan. She has served on the MHCC board for more than 20 years and was the first women elected chair of the chamber.
In 1987, using her entrepreneurial spirit, Ardisana, of Orchard Lake, and her business partner, Greg Rouke, formed Automotive Support Group later renamed ASG Renaissance. Under Ardisana’s leadership, ASG has grown from a small automotive supplier to its current position as a recognized industry leader providing technical staffing, marketing and public relations, consulting, and diversity services to companies, government, and non-profit sectors. In 2007, Ardisana created the Hispanic Automotive Suppliers Alliance, a not-for-profit business association dedicated to facilitating new business opportunities for Hispanic auto suppliers.
