John Jacquin, Michelman’s technical service and application development manager, has received the Division Leadership & Service Award from the TAPPI NET Division sponsored by Dow Chemical. Jacquin was presented with the award at the 2018 PaperCon Conference Awards Breakfast held on 16 April during TAPPI’s PaperCon 2018 event being held in Charlotte, North Carolina.
