Washington, D.C. –  The Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) learned today that long-time Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe is stepping down from his post with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to serve as President of the nonprofit Center for Climate and Energy Solutions.  SOCMA Vice President of Government and Public Relations Bill Allmond issued the following statement:

"SOCMA salutes Bob Perciasepe’s many years of public service on both the federal and state levels and congratulates him on his new position as President of the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions.  He has honed a keen understanding of many of the environmental challenges we face during his long career both in and out of government.  Additionally, and significantly, we repeatedly found that Perciasepe was willing to listen to, and engage with, industry stakeholders on a host of environmental issues, thus serving as a valuable and respected bridge between the Administration he was serving and outside groups.  We wish him well at his new post."

What Members Are Saying…

“SOCMA has had an extraordinary impact on the success of our business. There is no doubt that without SOCMA we definitely would not be as successful as we are today. The organization is an invaluable resource. We don’t part with dues dollars lightly, but believe every dollar spent with SOCMA has provided immeasurable returns.”
