WASHINGTON, DC — The American Coatings Association (ACA) presented Drew Vogel, President and CEO of Vogel Paint Inc. and member of ACA and PaintCare®’s Board of Directors and ACA’s Industrial Coatings Committee, with the George Baugh Heckel Award, the association’s highest honor. Vogel received the award during ACA’s Awards Dinner, which is held prior to the American Coatings Show in Atlanta.

Vogel was recognized for his industry leadership efforts for over a generation, including spearheading a consolidated and successful response to some of the initial major Superfund cases impacting the paint and coatings industry.

As a member of the original steering committee and PaintCare’s original Board of Directors, Vogel was instrumental in developing ACA’s paint product stewardship program, from its initial incorporation to the development and implementation of the pilot program in Oregon.
