Industry veteran Benjamin Fultz, of Bechtel Corp., has been elected Vice President of the SSPC Board of Governors, clearing the way for him to become President of the organization in 2013.

Fultz was appointed to the board in February 2008 to fill the unexpired term of Brian Castler in the Facility Owner demographic. In July of that year, he was elected to a full four-year term.

On Sept. 20, 2011, he was elected vice president at SSPC’s Board of Governors meeting in Pittsburgh.

Fultz was also recently named one of 24 JPCL Top Thinkers: The Clive Hare Honors, an honor that recognizes a select group of the industry’s thought leaders worldwide.

Video Interview

Fultz, a Bechtel Fellow in Materials Engineering Technology, has been a member of SSPC since 1995. He has 45 years of experience in both technical and production management of protective coatings uses and applications. He also has experience in cathodic protection and material selection, marine, refinery, chemical processing and nuclear application and has written more than 40 articles for various publications.

Fultz’s career has taken him around the world, leading to encounters at Chernobyl, with Mafia figures, and more. Earlier this year, Fultz discussed his colorful career with Marian Welsh, publisher of JPCL.

Fultz has a B.S. in Chemistry from Spring Hill College and was recipient of the 2007 SSPC Technical Achievement Award.

Fultz will become the President of SSPC on July 1, 2013, following the terms of Robert McMurdy (2011-12) and Stephen Collins (2012-13).

Founded in 1950 as the Steel Structures Painting Council, SSPC is dedicated to promoting and supporting the use of protective, marine and industrial coatings for corrosion protection.
