OTTAWA, Ontario – The Canadian Paint and Coatings Association’s (CPCA) highest honor, the Roy Kennedy Outstanding Achievement Award, is being presented to Dale Constantinoff, President and CEO of General Paint Corp.

The award is presented annually to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the association and who is still very active in the industry and in the CPCA.
