At next year’s NPE2021: The Plastics Show, the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) will present its inaugural William R. Carteaux Leadership Award to an industry professional who has achieved distinction working for the betterment of the plastics industry.

Award for Personal and Professional Values

Any employee of a PLASTICS member company, who personifies the values Bill Carteaux made the hallmarks of his career -- unity, dedication, perseverance and selflessness -- is eligible for the award, named for the former PLASTICS President and CEO.

“Bill Carteaux was the type of guy who could fill a room with his presence, and he used his passion and dedication to build bridges within the industry,” said PLASTICS President and CEO Tony Radoszewski. “His selflessness in his career and private life were never more obvious than when he continued to lead PLASTICS, chaired major events, and raised funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, all while battling the disease himself.”

“Receiving this award will be a great honor for the man or woman who best reflects Bill’s personal and professional values. As a close friend to Bill, I look forward to celebrating that special person and our entire industry next May at NPE2021 in Orlando, Florida,” Radoszewski added.

Radoszewski will present the new award on May 16th at the Plastics Hall of Fame Gala during NPE2021, where the recipient will stand alongside 2021 Hall of Fame inductees.

Nominations

Prospective candidates can be nominated by their peers, family, or friends. The Plastics Academy, which administers the Plastics Hall of Fame, will serve as a Screening Committee, with officers of PLASTICS making the final selection.

Nominations should include basic information about the nominee, as well as a brief description of his or her merits. Supporting letters will be accepted as well.

Nominations will be accepted through Monday, February 15, 2021.
Nominations can be sent to: jgardiner <AT> plasticsindustry.org.
