Dr. Terry Brewer, founder and CEO of Brewer Science, was presented the Kathryn C. Hach Award for Entrepreneurial Success on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, at the American Chemical Society’s 249th National Meeting. The award recognizes Dr. Brewer’s innovative global leadership in creating, developing, and manufacturing revolutionary microelectronic products found in today’s technology devices. The award also recognizes his strong support in cultivating the next generation of technology leaders.
“Receiving the Kathryn C. Hach Award is very special to me and our company,” said Dr. Terry Brewer, founder and CEO of Brewer Science. “Kathryn C. Hach is such a strong symbol for small business entrepreneurship and for making a positive difference. The American Chemical Society’s sponsorship of this award is significant and inspiring to all those interested in taking the ‘path less traveled.’ The choice to start your own business not only returns unique value to you, but it also provides you with the opportunity to return unique value to many, many others. The outcomes from my choice to begin a new business are seen in the new products and technologies developed at Brewer Science and in our employees. Our people are engaged in continuous learning and are growing personally and professionally. The energy from learning and growing overflows into the community as employees find creative ways to share and give back. The value has risen exponentially each day for the employees and the community associated with Brewer Science. Thank you for this special recognition. It is an honor.”
Earlier this year, Dr. Terry Brewer was honored with the 2014 SEMI Award for North America. Dr. Brewer was also selected by the Missouri Arts Council to be the recipient of the 2014 Missouri Arts Award for Philanthropy, the state’s highest honor to individuals and institutions that have made profound and lasting contributions to the cultural and artistic landscape of Missouri. Under Dr. Brewer’s leadership, Brewer Science was recognized as one of the Top 50 Employers by Minority Engineer magazine in 2014 and again in 2015. The company received recognition from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as a Top Workplace in 2012 and 2013. In 2013, Brewer Science was presented with the Flag of Freedom Award from the Missouri Department of Economic Development for the company’s commitment to consider Missouri veterans for employment through the State of Missouri Show-Me Heroes program.
