Letter from the Chairman & CEO

Chairman & CEO of Benjamin Moore, Dan Calkins, standing outside leaning against a wood deck railing.

Reflecting on 2022, we look back at all we’ve accomplished as an organization during a year that, in many ways, felt like a re-emergence.

Benjamin Moore, its employees, retailers and various stakeholders have continued to proactively address every challenge that comes our way – from supply chain disruptions to inflation and a changing housing market. While navigating these demands, we remain focused on ensuring the premium quality of our coatings, meeting our customers’ ever-changing needs and maintaining our obligation to our people and the planet.

As part of that commitment, we strive to cultivate an environment where all are provided with the tools and opportunities to thrive. This past year, a cross-functional team took a deep dive into our digital platforms in order to offer a more inclusive online experience for our employees and customers. Additionally, Benjamin Moore’s ongoing support for the communities we serve is reflected through our dedication to workforce development, housing and community development and preservation/sustainability through our many partnerships with organizations such as the National Urban League, American Cancer Society® and National Trust for Historic Preservation®.

Though we also witnessed a number of historic world events this year causing a range of emotions, we are reminded of what’s important, our core values and the part Benjamin Moore can play in championing change and equity. We are especially inspired by our progress toward our DE&I goals and priorities – from 100% participation from our leaders in inclusive leadership workshops/learning lab sessions to establishing Business Resources Groups (BRGs) focused on women, LGBTQIA+, the LatinX community and the next generation of our colleagues. Together, we continue to build a culture where our employees know they are included, valued and understood.

Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting, focuses on four pillars – product, people, planet and partnerships. The company’s accomplishments in these areas, our values and continued dedication to quality are reviewed within the 2022 Corporate Responsibility report.

I hope you’ll take the time to explore the contents of this report as you consider potential employment or other business opportunities with Benjamin Moore.
