WASHINGTON (June 27, 2022) — The American Chemistry Council (ACC), the nation’s largest trade association representing the leading companies engaged in the business of chemistry, today announced that Sarah Jane Scruggs has been named Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs, effective immediately. Scruggs, who had been serving as interim head of Communications since March, first joined ACC in January 2017 and has been overseeing all product communications since 2019. Overall, Scruggs brings more than 15 years of experience leading public relations and public affairs campaigns and delivering bottom-line value to clients throughout her career in professional services. She earned her B.A. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where she studied journalism, advertising, and graphic design.

Chris Jahn, President and CEO of ACC
After a thorough search, I’m thrilled – though not surprised – that the best candidate for the role turned out to be one of ACC’s own. Sarah already has demonstrated her ability to tell our industry’s unique story in compelling and innovative ways, and her experience overseeing all product communications has prepared her well for the challenges of Vice President. I’m excited for ACC members, the industry, and other stakeholders to see what Sarah and her team can achieve in this space.

In her new role, Scruggs will lead a team of nearly 20 communications staff in support of advancing ACC’s policy priorities. She will also focus on enhancing the industry’s reputation by increasing awareness of ACC member companies’ meaningful actions and contributions to overcoming pressing, environmental and sustainability challenges. Her efforts will complement ACC’s overall goal of finding common ground with policymakers and ensuring the chemical industry can continue to innovate, create jobs, and help grow the economy.
