RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) September 08, 2020
DuPont (NYSE: DD) DuPont Spruance Site Leader David Johnson was selected by Virginia Business magazine for its Virginia 500 list of the most influential executives in the Commonwealth. This inaugural list includes 500 leaders from across the state in 20 different categories – ranging from Agriculture and Energy to Law and Nonprofits. Johnson is on the list in the Manufacturing category.
Virginia Business compiled the list based on survey research conducted among state business leaders and economic development officials that compiled information on areas, including annual revenue, newsworthiness, community involvement, diversity, number of employees in Virginia and worldwide.
Johnson has been in his position at DuPont since 2018 after a long career in chemical engineering and operations for Invista, Kraton Polymers, Huntsman and other companies. A graduate of North Carolina State University, Johnson serves on the executive committee for the Virginia Manufacturers Association and the board of Virginia Forever, a coalition of businesses and environmental organizations focused on protecting natural resources.
“It is an honor and privilege to be listed on the initial Virginia Business Power list. While I appreciate this recognition, the true heroes at DuPont Spruance are our employees,” said Johnson. “During this challenging year of dealing with a global pandemic, they are the ones who come in every day to live our core values and safely produce and deliver much-needed products – like Kevlar®, Nomex® and Tyvek® to people around the world.”
