Previously serving as the associate vice president of science and regulatory affairs, Kim is now the vice president of the sector.

ACI had previously announced Kim would lead the department following the departure of Richard Sedlak, who retired as executive vice president of technical and international affairs after 42 years at ACI.

Kim joined the company in July 2018. His areas of responsibility include research, regulatory affairs and outreach related to the toxicology, human safety and efficacy of topical antiseptics.

Stanton, a 17-year veteran of ACI, previously served as the senior director of technical and regulatory affairs. She will now lead the association’s international regulatory and outreach efforts, as well as continue to undertake research and analysis to support the company’s scientific and regulatory programs.

Chavez, a 10-year ACI employee and former senior accounting manager, will now serve as controller, supporting ACI’s finance and accounting functions.

“We are fortunate to have an outstanding team in place to serve our membership,” said Melissa Hockstad, ACI President & CEO. “In particular, the breadth of experience we have at ACI provides unparalleled experience and expertise for the cleaning product supply chain.”
