ACI Appoints New Director

May 29, 2020 ACI Appoints New Director

The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has appointed Nathan Sell to the newly created position of director of regulatory science.

Snell joins ACI from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), where served as a chemical review manager in the agency’s Office of Pesticide Programs and Science Coordination and Policy. Previously he served as an editorial board member for the University of Pennsylvania’s WH2O Journal and a coordinator for the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL) at the Wharton School.

In his new role, Snell will be responsible for development and management of research strategies related to the safety of cleaning product ingredients. He will also serve as the main point of contact for ACI’s chemical management and regulatory programs.

“Nathan comes on board with extensive knowledge in risk-based decision making and technical writing, having worked at the EPA in the Offices of Pesticide Programs and Science Coordination and Policy,” said Dr. James Kim, ACI vice president. “His experience leading a team of scientists, economists, and technical staff for pesticide reviews will translate well to working with ACI task forces and work groups.”
