Steven W. Attman
CEO
Acme Paper & Supply Co.

For Steve Attman, CEO of Acme Paper & Supply Company, “intrapreneurship” is the key to longterm company success.

“I feel strongly that if you have the right people in the right positions, they will be self-motivated, proactive, and action-oriented with leadership skills and a think ‘out-of-the-box’ mentality, continuing to deliver innovation both internally and externally for Acme day in and day out,” Attman said.

Attman provides the necessary support and guidance when his team needs him, especially during unprecedented times like a pandemic.

“A CEO needs to stay in touch and not only encourage but make the necessary changes so everyone around you gains strength knowing the company will continue to support them even during these most difficult times,” Attman said.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Acme has been at the forefront of supplying cleaning and disinfecting products and equipment to hospital systems, critical care nursing homes, supermarkets and food processor clients that have been integral in the fight against the virus.

“The supply chain was broken and our clients desperately needed our cleaning solutions. We knew failure was not an option. I am proud to say, even as supply needs spiked to unprecedented levels, we never let anyone down,” Attman said.

Attman and his team regularly communicate via Zoom with employees, management teams, clients and suppliers to mitigate any issues and to maximize opportunities.

“The Acme team’s combined efforts to do the best we can each and every day to deliver on clients’ needs quickly and seamlessly has made this award possible. I thank every Acme employee for trusting in the company’s leadership to make the right decisions allowing for
company and employee growth year in and year out now for almost 75 years,” Attman said.

“A CEO needs to stay in touch and not only encourage but make the necessary changes so everyone around you gains strength knowing the company will continue to support them even during these most difficult times.”
