said Bryan Shelton, Global Responsible Care coordinator for Axalta, received the American Chemistry Council's (ACC) Responsible Care Employee of the Year award.
The Responsible Care Employee of the Year Award recognizes chemical industry leaders for exemplary environmental, health, and safety initiatives. The award is presented annually to one member and one partner company employee for outstanding leadership.
Shelton led Axalta's transition from RC14001:2013 to RC14001:2015 by combining a multi-task, stage-gate approach to building organizational knowledge, maintaining effective communications, and coordinating frequent engagement to keep the process on track. Axalta achieved full global multi-site certification in 2017.
"Bryan's recognition as Responsible Care Employee of the Year is a testament to the leadership he displays on a regular basis, enhancing and strengthening Axalta's Environmental, Health, Safety, and Security governance process," said Barry Snyder, SVP and chief technology officer. "His positive attitude and effective leadership style have served as a foundation for Axalta to fulfill our ongoing commitment to EHS&S excellence and Responsible Care on a global scale. We are very proud to be one of the first companies in the world to achieve and maintain a multi-site global RC14001 certificate to the 2015 Standard."
