Winner: Jim Colby, Honeywell
Anyone wishing to know what Dodd-Frank is all about should call Jim Colby. Honeywell, along with a handful of other companies, played a lead role for the industry in obtaining significant Dodd-Frank regulatory reporting relief. They even testified before the US House Committee on Agriculture that resulted in the introduction of HR 634 in Congress, a bill that would, if enacted, exempt non-financial end users from margin requirements on hedging transactions with banks. Our judges thought this was worthy of a special mention and is, therefore, their 2013 Judges’ Choice winner.
