WARRENDALE, Pa., March 19, 2008 - Carol Sturman, founder and President of Sturman Industries, Woodland Park, Colo., is the recipient of SAE International's J. Cordell Breed Award for Women Leaders. She will be honored during the SAE 2008 World Congress Award Ceremony held April 15, 5-7:30 p.m., at Cobo Center in Detroit.

The Breed Award, established in 1999, recognizes a woman who has significantly contributed to the mobility engineering industry through her service, leadership, innovation, technical skills and involvement in SAE International.

The award is funded through the SAE Foundation. In addition to supporting the awards, recognition and scholarship programs of SAE International, the SAE Foundation develops and funds programs and incentives that foster student interest in engineering, scientific and technical education.

Sturman founded Sturman Industries in 1989. The research and development firm specializes in the application of high-tech digital valve controls technology in mechanical systems, based on technology invented by Eddie Sturman, who is a partner and the technical leader of the company. Focusing on improving internal combustion engines, the company's goal is to help save natural resources and prevent pollution through the use of their enabling digital controls and system strategies. Under Sturman's leadership, Sturman Industries has grown into a multi-million dollar firm with business around the world.

Sturman has played a significant role in leading her company's team members in the formation of their nationally recognized culture: a corporate structure that is devoid of formal hierarchy, with an emphasis on respect, innovation, teamwork and excellence. In 2006, Sturman initiated the Sturman Innovation Way Seminars for industry, a series of training sessions focused on innovation, corporate responsibility and digital technology. The seminars also introduce the Sturman R.I.T.E. R.O.A.D. culture. Additionally, Sturman works with local private and public colleges and universities, environmental groups and businesses dedicated to creative leadership, innovation and cross cultural understanding. These efforts contribute to the realization of the Sturman mission: "To make a positive contribution to the world through our innovative technology and corporate culture."

Sturman Industries' organization, environment and culture have been recognized and featured in various publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and The Denver Post. The book, The Thing in the Bushes by Kevin Graham Ford and James P. Osterhaus, also quotes Sturman. Sturman Industries is the recipient of the Most Relationally Healthy Organization Award from The Armstrong Group.

Sturman holds a bachelor's in education from the University of Minnesota. She completed graduate courses in art and design at the University of California at Northridge and the University of Calfornia, Los Angeles. She resides in Woodland Park, Colo.
