The Responsible Care Employee of the Year Award recognizes chemical industry leaders for exemplary environmental, health and safety initiatives. The award is presented annually to one member and one partner company employee for outstanding leadership.

Shelton led Axalta’s transition from RC14001:2013 to RC14001:2015 by combining a multi-task, stage-gate approach to building organizational knowledge, maintaining effective communications and coordinating frequent engagement to keep the process on-track. Axalta achieved full global multi-site certification in 2017, a direct result of Shelton’s dedication, drive and insightful roll-out and effective transition process.

“Bryan’s recognition as Responsible Care Employee of the Year is a testament to the leadership he displays on a regular basis, enhancing and strengthening Axalta’s environmental, health, safety and security governance process,” said Barry Snyder, senior vice president, chief technology officer of Axalta. “His positive attitude and effective leadership style have served as a foundation for Axalta to fulfill our ongoing commitment to EHS&S excellence and Responsible Care on a global scale. We are very proud to be one of the first companies in the world to achieve and maintain a multi-site global RC14001 certificate to the 2015 Standard.”

Shelton continues to contribute to the RC14001 program by providing long-term strategic objectives, targets and goals that complement Axalta’s vision, mission and principles. Through his knowledge of the manufacturing process and operational challenges, he is able to provide similar direction to site-specific situations, manufacturing modifications, resource changes and challenges in the ongoing evolution of regulations.
