The deadline is nearing to submit nominations for the 2020 Rubber & Plastics News Rubber Industry Executive of the Year.
Submissions must be made by Nov. 4 to pick the person who will succeed P. Gren Schoch, chairman and CEO of AirBoss of America Corp., who was the 2019 Executive of the Year.
Given the turbulence that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to this year, the traditional measures of business success don't necessarily apply in 2020. But so many other tenets of good leadership mean even more in this time of a global crisis. We ask that you nominate a candidate who you feel exemplifies the traits of an executive who has led his or her company through this turbulent year.
Candidates can come from companies of any size. It's an easy process to nominate a candidate, and here's all you need to know:
The award goes to the lead executive of a North American manufacturer of finished rubber goods (including urethanes and TPEs). Suppliers to the industry are not eligible, but can nominate a manufacturer who is.
Nominations can be made online at rubbernews.com/execofyear. We need the candidate's name, where he or she works, their job title and why the person deserves the honor. If you have questions, email RPN Managing Editor Erin Pustay Beaven at [email protected].
Deadline for nominations is Nov. 4. The RPN editorial staff determines the winner, who will be announced in our Dec. 14 issue.
