RPM President Awards Flowcrete’s High Fliers

Key members of Flowcrete’s global team have been recognised with Connections Creating Value Awards from RPM International’s President & COO.

Flowcrete Group Ltd welcomed RPM International Inc.’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Ronald A. Rice, and Vice President of Planning and Financial Analysis, Melissa Schoger, to its headquarters in Cheshire to present RPM’s Connections Creating Value award to five Flowcrete employees. Elected President and COO of RPM International Inc. in 2008, Mr Rice has been instrumental in guiding and growing the company, to the point where it announced USD 4.6 billion in sales this year, up from just over USD 3 billion in 2010.

These awards recognise key members of the resin flooring manufacturer’s global team whose active collaboration between Flowcrete’s international companies and other RPM subsidiaries have added significant value to all the businesses involved.

During the awards ceremony Ronald Rice paid tribute to Flowcrete’s entrepreneurial spirit and the success it has achieved expanding its operations across four continents.

The members of Flowcrete’s staff who were presented with an award were: Rebekah Jones, Group Marketing Manager of Flowcrete Group Ltd; Shahril Salikam, Operations Director of Flowcrete Asia Sdn Bhd; Vivekanandan Margasahayam, Managing Director of Flowcrete India Pvt Ltd; Grant Adamson, Group Technical Director of Flowcrete Group Ltd and Kevin Potter, Managing Director of Flowcrete UK Ltd.

Mark Greaves said: “These five individuals have shown a considerable amount of energy, enthusiasm and innovative thinking in line with this approach. For example across Latin America we are partnering with Productos Cave, a Euclid Chemical Company, to launch our Flowfresh range in Chile as well as working with Viapol in Brazil, Toxement in Colombia and Stoncor SCC in Argentina.”

The award winners also received 168 shares in RPM International Inc. to reflect “the value of 168”, a company-wide philosophy that highlights the importance of making sure that every hour in the week counts.
