Chartered Scientist Named At Sherwin-Williams

A coatings expert has been recognised for his knowledge and experience by being named a Chartered Scientist.

Malcolm Morris, technical manager at Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings, has been assessed by the Science Council as meeting the requirements necessary to receive the title.

Chartered Scientists are described by the industry body as representing “the best professional scientists working in the UK and abroad.”

To meet the requirements of the council, Malcolm presented a portfolio of his experience and will need to re-evaluate the award each year.

Malcolm, who has worked in the coatings industry for more than 30 years, applied for the status through his professional membership of the Institute of Corrosion.

He said: “Being named a Chartered Scientist is recognition not just of my work, but that Sherwin-Williams itself is a competent and professional organisation.

“I would encourage any colleagues with a technical role to join their appropriate professional organisation and apply for the status as I did. As it is necessary to have the status re-evaluated each year, it’s also a great way to ensure your knowledge and skills remain current.”
