People on the Move spotlights trailblazers in standardization, highlighting their latest achievements, advancements, and contributions to the standards community.

NSF International, an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) member and audited designator, has appointed Clif McLellan as the vice president of its global water division. NSF International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection of food, water, and indoor air through standards development, product certification, and education.

He has conducted risk assessments for the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and water-related research for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and played a major role in creating the NSF Green Chemistry Program, which is associated with the EPA's Design for the Environment program. Mr. McLellan received a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Eastern Michigan University and earned his master's in toxicology at the University of Michigan.

The Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA) International, an ANSI member and accredited standards developer, has named Lisa Young as its chief marketing officer. Ms. Young is the first person to hold this newly created position.
