The American Cancer Society announces that the 2012 CEO of the Year award will be presented today to Warner Baxter, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Ameren Missouri, for his outstanding support of the Society’s mission to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

The CEO of the Year recognition is part of the American Cancer Society Corporate Impact Awards, presented annually by the Society’s Corporate & Systems Initiative. The honor is given to a chief executive officer who has engaged with the Society through personal commitments of time, talent or financial support, while facilitating the involvement of their employees, members and/or customers in support of the Society’s mission.

“Warner Baxter shares the commitment of the American Cancer Society to help people stay well and get well, to find cures for cancer and to fight back,” says John R. Seffrin, Ph.D., chief executive officer of the American Cancer Society. “Mr. Baxter continues to give back because he understands the importance of cancer prevention among his workforce and community --- and he knows we have to take action to avoid a tsunami of unnecessary disease and suffering.”
