PITTSBURGH – As part of PPG Industries’ acquisition of the North American architectural coatings business of AkzoNobel, Scott B. Sinetar, Vice President, PPG Architectural Coatings, North America, is set to lead the combined architectural coatings business. Sinetar will report to Michael H. McGarry, Executive Vice President.

“Scott’s extensive background in architectural coatings will serve him well in this expanded role, having joined PPG in 1989 from the original Olympic Paints and Stains acquisition,” McGarry said. “Since then, he has served in many roles of increasing responsibility in the architectural coatings business.”

Sinetar was named to his current position in 2006. Previously, he served as Manager, National Accounts; National Sales Manager; Director of Sales; and General Manager, Architectural Coatings. Earlier in his career, he held various positions with OLYMPIC® Paints and Stains.

“As we begin to integrate our outstanding organizations across North America, our combined architectural coatings business will be led by a strong team representing both PPG and the former AkzoNobel operations,” Sinetar said. “We look forward to a smooth transition and to continuing to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
