Wire and Cable Manufacturers Alliance Inc. (WCMA) named Kevin St. Cyr, president of Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company (www.berktek.com) as a 2006 Charles D. Scott Distinguished Career award recipient. The award, bestowed by previous award recipients, recognized industry professionals with at least 25 years in the wire and cable industry who during their careers have made significant commercial or technical contributions.
St. Cyr joins a list of previous Scott Award recipients within the Berk-Tek/Nexans organization: John Gibson, senior vice president of operations and technology at Berk-Tek (2005); Harold Styer, Berk-Tek president and CEO (1995); Gordon Thursfield, country manager of Nexans North America (1994); and the late Joseph Bosco, chairman, Berk-Tek's CEO and founder (1991).
St. Cyr joined Berk-Tek in April 1996 as senior vice president of marketing and sales. He was named the company's president in 1999; in 2003 his responsibilities increased to include global product management of high-speed data communications cable solutions. Prior to joining Berk-Tek, St. Cyr was vice president of marketing for Champlain Cable Corporation in Winooski, VT for seven years. Before that he held various technical, sales, and marketing-management positions for nearly 10 years at General Electric's Plastics Group.
He was born in Ware, MA and grew up in North Brookfield, MA. He obtained a bachelor's degree in plastics engineering from the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, where he graduated magna cum laude. Currently he is completing the Pennsylvania State University's Smeal College of Business Executive MBA program.
The Charles D. Scott award will take its place among others on St. Cyr's mantle, including the Volunteer of the Year award from the United Way of Chittenden County and the GE Plastics Marketing Excellence award.
