QCA Announces Rick Rayl Steps Down After 10 Years
After assisting in successfully guiding Chicago-based Quality Certification Alliance (QCA) for a decade, Rick Rayl, announced that he is stepping down from his position on the QCA Board of Directors, where he also served as chair of the Distributor Advocacy Council (DAC) committee.
Rayl has served QCA for ten years, which includes being part of its conceptualization and on the Board of Directors. He was one of the catalysts for the development of QCA and the creation of its founding documents. During his tenure, QCA became the promotional product industry’s only independent, non-governmental accreditation organization dedicated to helping companies provide safe products.
“We thank and honor Rick for his dedicated service and commitment to responsible sourcing,” said Larry Whitney, QCA Board president. “He was instrumental in building QCA into an innovative, industry-leading organization and his valuable counsel has played a huge part in QCA’s growth and impact on the industry. Rick is leaving us in a strong position and gaining momentum as we are poised for significant growth over the next few years.”
Rayl thanked QCA and the board for the opportunity to serve on this initiative.
“QCA has achieved unparalleled success in the promotional products industry,” Rayl said. “Working with the finest leaders, both suppliers, and distributors, to build and grow the gold standard in compliance is an honor I will always cherish.”
Rick will be honored with QCA’s first award for innovation and leadership.
