Former National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) President Chris Jahn will serve as the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) new president and CEO.

The transition will officially take place following the retirement of current ACC president and CEO Cal Dooley later this year.

Jahn served as the president of NACD from 2007-2014, during which time the organization increased its advocacy efforts in Washington on key issues related to chemical distribution; strengthened the association’s commitment to environmental, health, safety, and security stewardship; and successfully grew NACD’s membership programs and offerings.

“Chris’s tenure at NACD laid the groundwork for what we’ve been able to accomplish over the last five years—whether that’s successfully advocating for Toxic Substances Control Act reform, strengthening the core values and implementation of the NACD Responsible Distribution program, or expanding the resources we offer our members so they can run their businesses more effectively,” says NACD President and CEO Eric R. Byer. “Chris has been a friend to our industry for many years, and his track record at NACD and most recently at The Fertilizer Institute is proof that he will be a skilled and dedicated steward of the chemical manufacturer community.”
