The company announces the appointement of Kevin E. McDonald as vice president, fiber glass. McDonald is currently PPG general manager, reinforcements, and leader for fiber glass in the Americas and EMEA. He will succeed Thomas P. Kerr, who will retire effective March 1.

He will report to Viktor Sekmakas, PPG executive vice president, and continue to be based at the company’s Glass Business and Discovery Center in Harmar, Pa.
