Ernie Rosenberg Steps Down as CEO and President, American Cleaning Institute


After 16 years as the CEO and president of ACI , Ernie Rosenberg has decided to step down from his position. “I have had the honor of leading ACI for more than 16 years. I will be ready to pass on the mantle of leadership of the premier trade association for the cleaning products industry,” said Rosenberg. Despite the transition, he added, the company will continue daily operations and producing quality work.

ACI Board Chair Tom O’Brien, senior vice president, performance chemicals, Sasol, believes that 16 years of experience have made ACI a nationally and internationally respected company. “[Ernie’s] experience, knowledge, and network in Washington D.C., as well as his capability of building an outstanding staff, have benefited our association immensely and will serve us well into the future.”
