Spartan’s Kaufold Awarded ISSA 2023 Advocate of the Year
Spartan Chemical Company, Inc. a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, today announced that Rebecca Kaufold, Spartan Chemical manager of government affairs & sustainability, was awarded as one of three recipients of the 2023 Advocate of the Year by ISSA.
The award recipients were selected by ISSA with input from its Government Affairs Advisory Committee and were presented with the awards in Washington D.C. during National Cleaning Week
“Rebecca was selected as the manufacturing recipient for being such an engaged and helpful supporter of ISSA’s government and regulatory affairs efforts,” said John Nothdurft, ISSA Director of Government Affairs. “Her feedback, assistance, and encouragement over the years has been critical in helping the association more successfully impact legislative and regulatory issues relevant to the manufacturing and sale of industrial and institutional cleaning products.”
“Given the complexity of federal and state regulatory compliance, Spartan’s partnership with ISSA is invaluable. Not only does ISSA provide routine updates on regulations that impact Spartan products, but ISSA events facilitate interactions with our customers and product users, so I understand exactly how our compliance with these regulations is impacting our customers,” said Kaufold. “The ability to understand the downstream implications of regulations greatly impacts my ability to successfully negotiate with regulators for compliance that is valuable to our customers. ISSA is a valuable part of the Spartan team, and I am honored to be selected as the ISSA 2023 Advocate of the Year.”
The award was presented to Ms. Kaufold by John Barrett, ISSA executive director and John Nothdurft, ISSA director of government affairs at the association’s 2022 Clean Advocacy Summit in Washington D.C.
