PPG Start Date: March 1999
I’m responsible for the raw materials (direct) purchases for PPG globally. Our team handles both the strategic activities (negotiating contracts, managing commodity portfolios) and tactical activities in support of all the SBUs.
While running the Powder Coatings business, I was part of the team that won the R&D 100 Award (R&D Magazine) for Duranar powder coatings and I’m part of the team that has a patent pending on intermix powder coatings.
Why I Enjoy Working for PPG:
Every day is a new adventure! Because of PPG’s diverse mix of businesses, one is afforded the opportunity to move across industries and functions without having to move to a new company. My career is a testament to our leadership’s support for development across these many dimensions.
