SIKA CORPORATION AND FRANKLIN INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVES JOIN ADHESIVE AND SEALANT COUNCIL BOARD OF DIRECTORS
May 22, 2014 – Bethesda, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) announces that Steve Rosenberg, Senior Vice President at Sika Corporation and Forest Driggs, Vice President at Franklin International have joined the ASC Board of Directors, effective immediately.
Rosenberg replaces Steve Harms, who recently retired from Sika Corporation after 30 years of service to the company. Harms served on the Board for the past three years, and was the Board Liaison for the Council’s Regulatory Affairs Committee. Rosenberg will serve the remainder of Harms’ Board Term which runs through December 31, 2014.
Driggs replaces Larry Owen, Senior Vice President at Franklin International, former Past Chair of ASC, and Board Liaison for the Global Resources Committee. Owen will continue serving on the Global Resources Committee. Driggs will serve the remainder of Owen’s Board Term which runs through December 31, 2016.
“I look forward to collaborating with both Steve and Forest as ASC moves into the execution phase of its newly adopted Long Range Plan,” said Matthew E. Croson, President of ASC. “Fresh perspectives are always good for associations, and I’m looking forward to both Steve and Forest bringing their industry voice to the Board level discussions as we focus on adding value to ASC membership.”
“I also think it’s important to point out that Forest is replacing one of ASC’s longest standing leaders, with Larry Owen having served for 16+ years on the Board, serving as its chair, and given countless hours focused on how ASC can best support the industry,” added Croson. “His leadership has been a strong part of the success story at ASC, and we appreciate that he will continue to serve on the global resources committee – another indication that he is one of a kind in the association world and an even clearer indication of his character.”
