Dow’s Fitterling Named 2022 CEO of the Year

CEO is recognized by his peers in the ICIS Top 40 Power Players

Dow CEO Jim Fitterling received the 2022 ICIS CEO of the Year Award for outstanding achievement, recognized by his peers in the ICIS Top 40 Power Players.

Fitterling received the prestigious global chemical industry award during a virtual fireside chat with ICIS covering Dow’s strategy and outlook, along with key topics such as decarbonization, plastics recycling, government policy impacts, new projects, and macroeconomic outlook.

The winner of the ICIS CEO of the Year Award is selected based on a vote among chemical industry CEOs in the ICIS Top 40 Power Players--a global ranking of leaders driving the greatest positive impact on their companies and the chemical industry, published in ICIS Chemical Business.

Each ICIS Top 40 Power Player was asked to vote for three individuals based on achievements in:

• Profitability/shareholder value
• ESG (environmental, social and governance)
• Innovation (technology, product, business process)
• Success in M&A/portfolio management

“This award reflects the ingenuity, passion, and resolve of the entire Dow team, and their commitment to live our ambition to become the world’s most innovative, customer-centric, inclusive, and sustainable materials science company every day,” said Fitterling. “I am humbled to lead people so dedicated to improving our company, our industry, and society. It’s a privilege to accept this award on their behalf.”

“Dow CEO Jim Fitterling is leading the charge on decarbonization and sustainability with game-changing plans to build the industry’s first net-zero carbon cracker site, and also become the largest consumer of feedstock derived from plastic waste. Jim is also an excellent cultural leader who promotes inclusion and drives innovation both within Dow and the industry as a whole,” said Dean Curtis, CEO of ICIS.
