He always puts the industry first in his leadership and professional decisions.
"Sean Daoud exemplifies the qualities of the Young Executive of the Year Award," says ISRI President Robin Wiener. "ISRI is pleased to present this important award to Sean in recognition of his outstanding leadership, initiative, and vision for the recycled materials industry of tomorrow."

"It is very humbling to receive this award and to be in the ranks of prior recipients," says Daoud. "ISRI has given me so many opportunities to learn and grow professionally, and personally, via leadership roles and networking with other peers in the industry. ISRI's Leadership and many of its members have become family, friends, and mentors, which makes the work even more meaningful and enjoyable. I am lucky that my company and partners all see the value of ISRI. I appreciate all the support ISRI, its members, my company, and family have given me."
In addition to his work with ISRI, Daoud has served on several non-profit boards, notably on the PNW Playworks board where he helped form the Emerging Leaders Board. He is currently serving in a supporting role for legislative affairs to the Oregon Alzheimer's Association Board.
