Prestigious McCloy Award Honors DuPont
The American Council on Germany recently recognized DuPont Chair & CEO Ellen Kullman with the prestigious John McCloy Award.
The award is presented to two business leaders each year – one leader of an American firm and one leader of a German firm – for outstanding contributions to the transatlantic economic relationship. The official ceremony took place in New York City before more than 100 guests representing government, economic advisors and members of society. Besides DuPont, the American Council on Germany also recognized Siemens CEO Peter Löscher and gave a special award to former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger for his life work.
“It is a privilege and great honor for DuPont to receive the John McCloy Award for our longstanding successful engagement in Germany,” Ellen said during her speech. “With more than 3.000 employees, Germany today is our largest presence outside the U.S. We have longstanding partnerships with customers, governments and various agencies that are great examples for collaboration and sustainable growth in the past 50 years. And without a doubt, Germany is one of our essential partners for our global collaboration in the 21st century to make the world a better, safer and healthier place.”
Ellen and other leaders hosted high-level customers and partners at the DuPont table. Hans-Jürgen Huber, managing director and country leader of DuPont in Germany, also joined the event.
“I am delighted that we will be able to share the wonderful recognition of the McCloy Award when we celebrate our 50th anniversary of DuPont Germany later this summer with our customers, partners and employees,” Hans-Jürgen said. “This not only will further strengthen the bonds between Germany and the U.S., but also help position DuPont as global collaborator on a national level.”
