DuPont Chairman & CEO Picked for '09 Palladium Medal

The Societe de Chimie Industrielle - American Section will award the 2009 International Palladium Medal to DuPont Chairman & CEO Charles O. Holliday Jr. for his "distinguished contributions to the chemical industry." He will receive the medal at an event in his honor on May 6, 2009, in New York City where DuPont President and CEO designate Ellen J. Kullman will introduce him.

"Chad Holliday has been at the top of the chemical industry leadership for the past decade, which has been a transformational period. The Palladium Committee recognized his efforts to advance science through the integration of biology and chemistry; to accelerate the globalization of the industry; and to make significant private and public contributions beyond his own company," said John Roberts, chairman of the International Palladium Medal Award Committee.

Holliday is the third DuPont leader to receive the Palladium award. Past DuPont recipients include Edward R. Kane in 1979 and Edgar S. Woolard Jr. in 1995. Kane was DuPont president and chief operating officer from 1973 to 1980 and Woolard was DuPont chairman and CEO from 1989 to 1995.
