In announcing the award, CPA Chairman Louis Brassard commended Mosby for his years of service on behalf of the composite panel industry. Prior to his retirement, Mosby was the senior vice president of Collins Products.

The award was presented to Mosby during the CPA Fall Meeting & Material, Technology & Design Symposium, held Sept. 23-25 in Nashville, Tennessee.
