CI: Tell us about your favorite CI memory or success story. Why are you a member?
“I am a CI member, because my company works with many chemical producer-shippers of chlorine, sodium hydroxide, and hydrochloric acid and for aid in regulatory compliance. One of my favorite memories was at a Chlorine Institute meeting a few years ago. I was having breakfast with a former CI member, Mike Clark of Salco Products. The main speaker for that meeting, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, sat down and ate breakfast with us. It was interesting to listen to Mike and “Rudy” reminisce of northwestern Indiana, because they grew up in the same area and knew the same people.”
CI: What is something not many people know about you?
“I am a railroad fan and have driven a first-generation diesel engine at a railroad museum.”
“Larry has a wealth of technical and regulatory knowledge and is very active in rail industry activities, which makes him a great asset to the [Transportation] issue team and broader membership.” – Robyn Kinsley, VP Emergency Preparedness and Transportation.
CI staff would like to thank Larry for his continued support and commitment to the Institute!
