Kevin O’Leary of Miller Paint Company will receive the 2019 Samson-Adler Award on Tuesday morning. O’Leary began his career in the paint and coatings industry in the Seattle/Tacoma area at Todd Chemical/Enterprises in 1976 after serving four years in the U.S. Air Force.
Tuesday’s Keynote Address, “Innovation in Relationships Between Coatings Companies, Suppliers and Co-Suppliers,” will be delivered by Dr. Richard Jenkins, Global Group President, Arkema Coating Resins. Recent trends in the chemical industry have been towards consolidation, less upstream flexibility, more frequent and unexpected raw material shortages, more constrained carrier capacity, and increased demand volatility. The consequences of such forces on planning and operating a reliable supply chain can no longer be affordably mitigated through an inventory-only approach.
