White has been with ACC for a decade, most recently as a senior director within its chemical products and technology division. In that role, she led ACC’s scientific research, regulatory advocacy and communications in specific chemistries and product sectors.
‘The chemical industry is one built on a principled foundation of sound science, and I was so pleased to see the new Administration also express its commitment to science-based decision-making,’ White said ‘I look forward to working with the Administration to establish even greater understanding of the importance of risk and science-based public policy.’
ACC president and CEO Chris Jahn added that White brings deep chemicals management expertise to highly complex public health and environmental public policy issues. ‘Her track record as a consensus-builder and solutions-seeker brings our industry the right leadership and collaborative approach to help us achieve a stronger, healthier, safer, and more sustainable future,’ he said.
