Chuck is the 5th person to receive the NACD Lifetime Achievement award in its 44-year history.



Hubbard-Hall Chairman/CFO Chuck Kellogg received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual meeting of the National Association of Chemical Distributors in November.


In presenting the award, Roger Harris, CEO of Producers Chemical, described Chuck as a mentor to others in the industry who has demonstrated, “not only a lifetime of giving, but also inspired others to reach lifetime goals.”


Kellogg was one of the founding members of NACD in 1971 when he and other CEOs recognized the need for the chemical distribution industry to adopt best practices and become overt stewards of the chemical distribution process. Kellogg has remained active and vocal in the association since its founding:


  • Chairman of NACD, 1982-1983
  • President of Northeast Region, 1974-1976
  • Treasurer (for life) Northeast Region, 1995 – present
  • Distributor of the Year – 1996



Chuck is a 5th generation family member of Hubbard-Hall and has had a 56 year career at the company, serving as Chairman/CEO since 1992. Prior to working at the business, he recalls boyhood visits to the retail store in downtown Waterbury, CT (the company was then called Apothecaries Hall) when he would hop up to the soda counter and ply free drinks from his grandfather.


Over his career, Chuck has helped transform the company from a local supplier of fertilizers and anodes to one of the most highly regarded distributors of industrial chemicals in New England and a global supplier of specialty products for surface finishing.


“Chuck’s dedication to our industry is demonstrated through his service within the NACD organization as well as his drive to be a mentor to up-and-coming leaders in our industry,” said Harris. “I’m honored to be able to call Chuck a dear friend, and I’m proud to present him with this distinguished award.”


Hubbard-Hall is an active member of NACD whose companies are leaders in health, safety, security, and environmental performance through participation in Responsible Distribution, a 3rd party verified management practice.
