Aluminum Association Announces Boultinghouse and Chairman’s Award Winners
ARLINGTON, VA., — The Aluminum Association announced today the winners of two prestigious industry awards presented during its recent annual meeting in Washington, D.C. Mike Zoll, Director of Safety at Novelis, received the Marlan Boultinghouse Award for industry leadership while Dick Schultz, Managing Director at Ducker Worldwide, received the newly created Chairman’s Award, recognizing a non-industry employee who nonetheless made a positive impact educating the public about the importance of aluminum.
“I can’t think of two more deserving people to receive these honors than Mike and Dick,” said Layle "Kip" Smith, Chairman of the Aluminum Association, and President and CEO of Noranda Aluminum. “While their contributions to the industry are very different – Mike as a pioneer on safety and Dick as the preeminent expert on aluminum in the auto sector – both have made a huge impact.”
Dick Schultz is a Managing Director at Ducker Worldwide and the primary author of several independent studies showing the growing importance of aluminum in the automotive space. Prior to joining Ducker, Schultz spent many years in the metals industry as a metallurgical engineer – first with LTV Steel and later with Alcoa. While at Alcoa Schultz lead the Alcoa Automotive Group expansion to meet automotive industry needs in North America and Europe. He holds a Masters in Business Administration degree in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh and a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati.
