Eric Byer

Eric Byer is a passionate, pro-business advocate for the chemical distribution industry as CEO and president of the Alliance for Chemical Distribution (ACD), formerly the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD). Since taking the helm of ACD in January 2014, he has been a tireless leader in growing the organization’s public policy programs and its outreach with our nation’s leaders on Capitol Hill and with regulatory agencies. Eric has championed the growing and diversified chemical distribution industry, helping usher in the announcement of the organization’s new name in 2023. He is focused on ensuring excellence in ACD’s Responsible DistributionTM, the industry’s most comprehensive environmental, health, safety, security, and sustainability standards, and has created numerous initiatives for the continuous improvement of member companies. Since joining ACD, he has grown the organization from a $3.5M trade association to $8.5M, doubling staff growth to support membership needs. Eric helped secure the enactment of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, successfully advocated for the passage of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program four times, highlighted the need for greater freight rail safety and competition, and ensured the chemical distribution industry was listed as an essential industry during the Covid-19 pandemic. Prior to ACD, Eric was senior vice president at Obadal, Filler, MacLeod & Klein, PLC (OFMK), where he led strategic communications, marketing, programs, and government affairs. Before his tenure at OFMK, Eric was vice president of government and industry affairs at the National Air Transportation Association.
