WASHINGTON — Ernie Rosenberg, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the American Cleaning Institute (ACI), has issued a statement in remembrance of Joseph Acker.
Acker was the former president and CEO of the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA), who passed away on December 6, 2010.
"Joe Acker was a leader who was passionate about his industry and its defense. He was quick to laugh, quick to offer help. And he was a real gentleman, displaying a grace and caring for others that''s far too rare. For him to consider you a friend was a compliment of the highest order. All of his colleagues will miss him dearly," Rosenberg said.
