Randy was selected as the 2015 Person of Vision because he has demonstrated tremendous leadership through his company as well as his own civic contributions. He is actively involved and sits on the boards of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, the Andy Warhol Museum, and the Stepan Company. He also is a trustee with the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh and Hiram College. Randy has been recognized as an emerging top CEO with a Pittsburgh Business Times Diamond Award. He has also won a PRSA Renaissance Award as the CEO Communicator of the Year, and Junior Achievement’s 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year Award. In 2013 he was recognized with the Community College of Allegheny County’s Legends in Leadership Award for his work in the community.

Randy joined Calgon Carbon Corporation in August 2012, accepting the role of President and CEO after having served on the Board of Directors since 2007. Shortly after he joined Calgon Carbon, the company partnered with our agency’s Industries Division to supply activated carbon, which we use to make carbon filters for U.S. Navy submarines. These filters are essential in providing clean air for enlisted members of the Navy who serve on the submarines.

This unique collaboration among Calgon Carbon, Blind & Vision Rehabilitation Services and the U.S. Navy is having an impact both globally on Navy submarines and locally with jobs for persons who are blind or vision impaired.
