Years at PPG:
Michelle I. Ritter joined PPG's Law Department in 1991 after working for a Pittsburgh law firm, for 3-1/2 years.
"I had very limited experience with environmental law prior to joining PPG, but I learned quickly that it is a very dynamic and interesting area of practice. I currently manage the Environment, Health and Safety Section of the Law Department. My practice covers regulatory, transactional, real estate, administrative and other matters. I work with a diverse group of PPG employees across several strategic business units. This opportunity and exposure promotes my professional development as well as my personal knowledge of different cultures."
"Three key aspects about PPG I enjoy: the people (professional and supportive), the work environment (engaging and positive), and the multi-dimensional practice of environmental law (many opportunities, challenges and the fast-paced industry)."
"Although I have a very busy work schedule, which includes travel, I still find time to enjoy my family and friends."
