Berry to serve as executive director of CIRI council

March 13, 2006
Dr. Michael Berry has agreed to serve as executive director of the Cleaning Industry Research Institute's Scientific Advisory Council.

"We're thrilled to have Dr. Berry lead our Advisory Council," CIRI Chairman of the Board Jim Harris said. "CIRI's mission is to raise awareness of the importance of cleaning through scientific research, and the Council is the group that will oversee that charter. We're the cleaning industry's only organization to have a bona fide scientific advisory council of this sort."

"The cleaning industry needs to get serious about recognizing and supporting science," Dr. Berry said. "As we look to set standards in terms of cleaning efficacy, green cleaning and more, those standards must be based on solid scientific research."
