The Pressure Sensitive Tape Council (PSTC) is pleased to announce Stan Williams, Director of Technical Projects, Shurtape Technologies and Dr. Graeme Roan, Director, Business Development, CCT, as the first recipients of the Council’s newly established President's Award. The President’s Award honors outstanding volunteers who have served on a committee with the purpose of advancing PSTC's mission and vision.

Stan Williams(l), Director of Technical Projects, Shurtape and Dr. Graeme Roan (r), Director, Business Development, CCT, were recently named recipients of PSTC's 2015 President's Award.

Mr. Williams presented his first PSTC class in 2001 and joined the PSTC Education Committee in 2002.

Dr. Roan also contributed to the development of two other PSTC courses: “Manufacturing and Testing of PSA Tapes,” and “Adhesives and Advanced Technologies of PSA Tapes.”

In 2013, Dr. Roan volunteered to chair PSTC’s Marketing Committee, which has been focused on advancing an overall PSTC branding initiative, including branding PSTC’s flagship “Responsible Tape Manufacturer” (RTM) program and the recent introduction of PSTC’s sister website,
