Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Pete Leitner of Admix, Inc. was presented with the 2012 Technical Service Award from The Association for Dressings and Sauces (ADS) during the Association’s 2012 Technical Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 29 – May 1.
Each year, the ADS Technical Service Award is given to an individual who has demonstrated dedicated service to the ADS technical programs. Nominations for this award are taken from the general ADS membership and then voted on by the ADS Executive Technical Board, the group that oversees the Association’s technical activities.
“When I first joined ADS, I received some great advice from my mentor,” said Pete Leitner, Admix, Inc. and 2012 Technical Service Award winner. “I was told to get involved, and you will receive much more from working for the Association than what you put into it. I have lived by that advice my entire tenure with ADS.”
During Mr. Leitner’s membership with ADS, he has contributed his time and technical expertise to several of the Association’s committees and projects. He has served on the Technical Committee (formerly Emulsion Committee), ADS’ Membership Council and Board of Directors.
“Pete is a well-informed technical resource for ADS members,” said Patricia Faison, ADS Director of Regulatory and Technical Affairs. “His dedication to the organization and hard work to advance the industry are greatly appreciated.”
Mr. Leitner was previously awarded the ADS Technical Achievement Award in 2007. As a supplier of mixing equipment, Mr. Leitner was honored for the introduction and promotion of new mixing technology, which is still being used widely in the dressings and sauces industry.
