Steve Caldeira, president and CEO of the Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA), will receive the 2022 Trade Association CEO of the Year Award from CEO Update.
The Association Leadership Awards are presented annually by CEO Update to recognise excellence in trade associations and professional societies. An independent panel of 12 representatives from association search firms, former association CEOs, previous honourees, and attorneys who represent associations choose the winners of these prestigious awards.
Caldeira is being honoured for his role in representing a critical industry during the pandemic. These efforts included ensuring cleaning and disinfectant products remain available to consumers and workers and coordinating with government agencies and allied trade associations to help manage the supply chain.
CEO Update also recognises Caldeira’s “determined leadership”, noting that he has “awed peers with his energy and determination to strengthen the fabric of the Association community”. Most recently, Caldeira has been a passionate advocate for the household and commercial products industry with legislators, calling for a federal standard for cleaning product ingredient disclosure.
“I am humbled, honoured, and profoundly grateful to be recognised by my peers as Trade Association CEO of the Year,” said Caldeira.
“Associations play an integral role in solving societal challenges and their members significantly contribute to the US economy. Associations are important and that is why I am so proud to be a part of this community.”
