The company also announced that Scott Anderson and James Stake have each decided not to stand for re-election to the Board of Directors at the 2024 annual meeting and will retire from the Board.

“A top priority for the Board is ensuring that we have the right composition of Board members to oversee execution of the Company’s strategy and guide C.H.

Paige Robbins brings a strategic mindset and broad operational experience, as an executive leader at Grainger where she has delivered strong operational results. She currently oversees all commercial functions for the Grainger brand in North America. The Board looks forward to their contributions and remains committed to driving positive change and increasing shareholder value.”

“On behalf of the Board, I want to extend our gratitude to retiring directors Scott Anderson and Jim Stake for their exemplary service over the past decade and more. Scott’s leadership was invaluable during his tenure as interim CEO, and as former Chair, and the Board remains deeply appreciative of Jim’s service as Audit Chair and his counsel and influence,” continued Kozlak.

He played a pivotal role in transforming PPG from a diversified glass, chemicals and coatings company into a highly focused coatings enterprise, with revenues of over $18 billion and operations in more than 70 countries. He held various leadership positions in PPG, including President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer and board member.
