2019 Kavaler Award Gala

This year's Kavaler Award dinner added to the proud history of this annual event in that Bob Patel, CEO of LyondellBasell received the award for the second year in a row, the first time this has happened.  What makes this even more unusual is that the winner of the award is selected by his industry peers in the ICIS Top 40 executives of the year.

The black tie dinner, held on September 19 at the Metropolitan Club, attracted more than 240 attendees who represented a cross section of the chemical industry and its followers: chemical industry executives, financial analysts and investment bankers, consultants, attorneys and more.  During the pre-dinner cocktail session, everyone seemed to be intensely involved in conversations with other attendees, and similar group conversations took place during the separate dessert phase after dinner.
