Andy Doyle was awarded the UK coatings industry’s highest honour, the Silver Medal, at the British Coatings Federation Conference in Manchester on 23rd May.

Andy Doyle, President and CEO of the American Coatings Association, was instrumental in the founding of the World Coatings Council in 1992 before becoming President and has been involved with the BCF throughout the same period. The BCF’s unique relationship with the American Coatings Association has proved invaluable, both in and out of the European Union. Andy was directly involved in helping to cement BCF’s representation on the European stage on the Board of CEPE and has been an advocate for BCF to retain its profile with National Associations around the world. Andy has also provided valued contributions to researching and understanding both Coatings Care and now PaintCare, following the scheme’s nationwide success in the US.

Andy commented on his commendation: “I’m extremely honoured and humbled by this recognition from the BCF. I have always felt that our two organisations share a special bond. The BCF is an exceptional association, deftly led by their CEO Tom Bowtell and admired not only in the UK but globally as well. I am very grateful for the many years of friendship and have greatly enjoyed the chance to work alongside a terrific BCF team.”

Tom Bowtell, Chief Executive of the British Coatings Federation, commented: “Andy exemplifies the commitment to the industry that the Silver Medal was developed to recognise. He has been a prominent figure in the global coatings industry and is a huge advocate for the BCF. We would like to thank Andy for his support and expertise throughout the years and congratulate him on this very much deserved accolade.”

The medal was presented to Andy by Peter Rieck, former BCF President and Silver Medal winner.
