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(R) Paints and Stains. A native of Bethpage, N.Y., Sinetar earned a bachelor’s in business administration from Monmouth University and completed executive education at Carnegie Mellon University.
“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.”
With this acquisition, PPG has expanded its reach in all three major North American distribution channels, including home centers, independent paint dealers and company-owned paint stores.
