In presenting the award, John Logue, CEO, Royale Pigments, stated, “Since joining the association in 2002, Sean has been a super advocate for NACD and its members. From day one, he has been an active participant and contributor to the success of NACD members. He believes vigorously in this community, in the Responsible Distribution principles chemical distributors operate by, and in creating resources for family businesses who have limited resources. His unwavering support and dedication to chemical distribution for twenty years has been incredible.”
