Jul 18, 2016
Fran Schrotter, senior vice president and chief operating officer, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in New York, N.Y., has received the prestigious ASTM International 2016 William T. Cavanaugh Memorial Award.
The Cavanaugh Memorial Award honors W.T. Cavanaugh, CEO of ASTM from 1970 to 1985, who established ASTM as the world leader in developing and disseminating voluntary consensus standards.
Schrotter is honored for her sustained leadership in the U.S. and global standards community, exemplifying a commitment to consensus, collaboration, and professionalism.
“Nearly everyone in the global standards community has been positively affected by Fran’s contributions,” said ASTM president James Thomas. “Clearly her work has supported standards that have improved the lives of millions of people in both the U.S. and around the world. She truly embodies the spirit of the Cavanaugh Award.”
Schrotter has been with ANSI since 1976, working with a variety of domestic and international committees and organizations that develop standards in dozens of industries, including information technology, homeland defense and security, nuclear energy, nanotechnology, and many more. As senior vice president, she is primarily responsible for ANSI’s activities supporting U.S. participation in domestic and international standardization activities.
In addition, she has held numerous leadership roles in other organizations. For example, she was a member of the U.S. Department of Justice National Commission on Forensic Science, and she was appointed to the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology Organization of Scientific Area Committees Quality Infrastructure Committee on Forensic Sciences.
With the Cavanaugh award, Schrotter is named as an honorary member of ASTM.
