A CEO reflects on the 15th anniversary of 9/11

DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11, the day of the worst terrorist attack on our country. Each year I write and share my reflections on that day.

Two hijacked aircraft flown by terrorists destroyed both World Trade Center towers. A third aircraft caused significant damage to the Pentagon. A fourth aircraft was brought down by courageous passengers in a field in central Pennsylvania before it could reach its target, possibly the Capitol Building.

The war on terrorism has certainly changed since 9/11. Those who want to harm us no longer highjack aircraft and use them as weapons as members of the terrorist group al-Qaida did on Sept. 11, 2001. ISIS is the new foe in the war against terrorism, on the ground in Syria and Iraq as well as in our own cities, where individuals and small cells of terrorists attack to create fear and havoc.

No one can ever forget where they were at 8:45 am on 9/11. As then CEO of PQ Corp., I reflect on how that day impacted me and my employees.
