John has endeavored to make the world measurably better not only through business and technology, but through family, scholarship, and philanthropy.

“I am deeply honored to have been selected by The American Ceramic Society as this year’s recipient for the Medal for Leadership in the Advancement of Ceramic Technology,” said Dr. John K. Coors, Director and Chairman of the board for CoorsTek. “It is my passion to bridge academia and industry to collaborate and solve complex problems. The success of our company rests squarely on the shoulders of those who have come before us – and I am grateful for the leadership, passion and desire to develop and innovate engineered ceramics and advanced materials worldwide.”
