Cal Dooley Agrees to Delay Retirement and Extend Tenure as President and CEO of American Chemistry Council Through 2019

The American Chemistry Council announced that Cal Dooley has agreed to delay his retirement and extend his tenure as President and CEO through 2019. In April, Dooley announced his intention to retire at the end of 2018. The decision to delay retirement comes after ACC's Annual Meeting which took place June 4th through June 6th in Colorado Springs, CO, where the board of directors agreed that the chemicals and plastics industry must take a global leadership role to reduce and ultimately eliminate plastic waste. Korn Ferry International was retained to conduct the search for Dooley's replacement when his retirement was announced in April 2018.
