McKINNEY, Texas — Encore Wire‘s Chairman, President & CEO, Daniel Jones was honored with The Ankh Award, also known as the Copper Man of the Year Award, on Wednesday, June 15 in New York City at The Copper Club’s Annual Dinner.
Attendees at this special event include industry leaders from around the world. The prestigious Ankh Award has been presented every year since 1962 to professionals who have made extraordinary contributions to the copper industry. By honoring those who have forged pathways in the industry, The Copper Club, formed in 1944, ensures the past, present and future of copper.
The Copper Club’s Ankh Award, named for the ankh, a graphic symbol for the red metal dating back to ancient Egypt, also known as the Copper Man of the Year Award, was first presented in 1962 to honor outstanding individual achievements in and contributions to the copper industry. The trophy awarded to recipients is a reproduction of Auguste Rodin’s famous sculpture, The Thinker.
Each year, the club circulates a survey soliciting the copper industry for nominees for the award. It asks for the names of individuals who have made notable contributions to the industry, and the winner is selected by the Ankh Award committee.
