Amway Inducts First Class of Scientific Leadership Society

April 5, 2013

Four Amway scientific leaders are being recognized for their efforts by being inducted into the new Amway R&D Distinguished Scientific Leadership Society. This first class of inductees includes Ernie Brumbaugh, Amit Chandra, Ph.D., Tom Hamernik and Keith Randolph, Ph.D.

The Amway R&D Distinguished Scientific Leadership Society was created to acknowledge individuals with a longstanding record of scientific and technical excellence during their Amway career. Inductees were nominated independently by a member of management and endorsed by the R&D executive leadership team. The criterion for selection included demonstration of technical credibility through past awards, patents and publications, significant impact in the areas of innovation, scientific leadership, experimentation, mentoring and collaboration, and a tenure of at least 10 years at Amway.

A pioneer in the development of new technologies, Brumbaugh has been creating innovative Amway products for more than four decades. He’s known for his breakthrough launch of the first non-chlorinated automatic dish detergent on the market in the 1980s and his recently patented discovery that makes several cleansing products gentler on the skin. His efforts enhance the position of Amway as a leader in the home products category.

Well-known for his significant contributions in the global regulatory environment on behalf of Amway, its Artistry brand, and generally in the home product category, Hamernik also has a distinguished record of leadership in industry organizations such as the Personal Care Products Council (PCPC).

Randolph and Chandra are being honored for their work in the dietary supplement side of Amway’s business.
