The award recognizes an individual for special effort on behalf of the RCMA in advancing the roof coatings industry. Recipients have demonstrated outstanding interest and activism in promoting the roof coatings industry through new technical programming, regulatory or governmental affairs incentives, research activities, technical publications, the RCMA and industry involvement.

“Skip is undoubtedly an expert in the roofing industry with over 40 years of experience,” said Jeffrey Blank, RCMA president. “As a past recipient of the RCMA Martin A. Davis Award and current RCMA vice president, Skip is recognized by his peers and industry professionals for his expertise and willingness to move the association forward.”

Leonard joined Henry Company in 1999 as director of technical service; before that, he held positions with TAMKO Roofing Products, Gulf States Asphalt Company and GS Roofing Products. He has been an active member of several industry associations and currently serves as a consultant to the Henry Company.

Leadership Award

Zegelbone is the 29th recipient of the Martin A. Davis Industry Leadership Award, named for one of RCMA’s founding members. The association’s highest honor, the award is presented annually to an individual who has exemplified outstanding service and made significant contributions to the roof coatings industry.

Richard Zegelbone

Richard Zegelbone, a charter member of the Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association, received its highest honor.

Zegelbone is a former RCMA president, held a variety of board positions, and was a charter member of the association.

“Richard has been a committed member since day one of the organization,” said Blank. “He is an individual worthy of this award for his continued commitment to this organization from the beginning.”
