Byron Schneidman, partner of RSM US, an audit, tax and consulting firm, was awarded the Michael Cardone Leadership Award, which recognises an individual who demonstrates exceptional leadership in remanufacturing and sustainability. The award is named in honour of Michael Cardone Jr, co-founder of Cardone Industries and founding chairman of MERA. In presenting the award, MERA president John Chalifoux said: “Byron, you are a great partner of MERA and its members.”
Schneidman was a key part of developing MERA’s Accounting & Taxation Principles for Cores in the Remanufacturing Industry. Cardone award honourees must demonstrate vision, passion, teamwork and excellence. “Byron recognised the need for all of us to have an accounting report and his passion helped us get the report over the goal line,” Chalifoux said.
