PPG promotes McDonald to VP fiber glass

McDonald will replace soon-to-be retiree Thomas Kerr.

PPG Industries, the Pittsburgh-based coatings company, has promoted Kevin McDonald to the role of VP fiber glass.

Beginning March 1, McDonald will transition from his current role as PPG general manager, reinforcements and leader for fiber glass in the Americas and EMEA. He will succeed Thomas Kerr, who is retiring effective the same day.

“Kevin’s deep knowledge of PPG’s fiber glass business will serve the company well as he takes on this important role,” Sekmakas said. “In addition, we thank Tom for his contributions to PPG during his 35-year career. We congratulate him on his many accomplishments and successes and wish him and his family all the best.”

McDonald has been with the company since 1980 and held various roles in sales and marketing.

In his new role, he will report to EVP Viktor Sekmakas out of his current station at the company's Glass Business and Discovery Center in Harmar, Pa.
