Committee E53 The Dieter-Hestermann Award
Rationale for Establishment of the Award:
As founding members of Committee E53 (2000-Present), James Dieter and Lyle Hestermann are respected, knowledgeable and important members of the committee. They are well known within the asset management realm and both have served on the board of NPMA. Their understanding of how standards would change the scope of the asset management profession is instrumental in the continued development and acceptance of the committee, its members and our standards that are in place today. Both have taught classes within NPMA and written many articles promoting the use of the committee standards. They have been and continue to be mentors for those that follow in their footsteps. The committee would not be as robust and active without their participation and forward thinking.
The intent of the Dieter-Hestermann award is to recognize and honor future individuals who provided outstanding leadership; and have made exemplary technical, practical and administrative contributions to Committee E53 over a continuous period of time. Award winners will have demonstrated Jim and Lyle’s proficiency at achieving high quality standards, principals of leadership, promotion of the committee, the use of its standards and most important demonstrated a willingness to move the committee forward.
The ASTM International Committee E53, Property Management, establishes the Dieter-Hestermann Award to recognize distinguished service to individual Committee E53 members.
