PPG has announced that Chancey Hagerty will be taking over the position of Vice President, Global Automotive Refinish Coatings, effective March 1.

Hagerty is currently serving as the Vice President of the company’s Global Industrial Coatings division. In his new capacity, Hagerty will remain as a member of the Operating Committee and will report to Tim Knavish, PPG Executive Vice President.

Hagerty has been a part of PPG for 24 years. Having first joined the company in 1996, he has served in several roles of increasing responsibility within both the industrial and automotive original equipment manufacturing (OEM) coatings business units of PPG.

Hagerty will be taking over from current Vice President of Global Automotive Refinish Gary Danowski who is set to retire spending 38 years in the company. Danowski joined PPG in 1982 as a production engineer at PPG’s former Crestline, Ohio, automotive glass fabrication plant, currently a part of Vitro Automotive Glass. He has served in various leadership roles throughout his tenure. He was named Vice President, Automotive Refinish, EMEA in 2011 and then promoted to Vice President, Global Automotive OEM Coatings in 2017. Danowski stepped into his current role in July 2018.

PPG simultaneously announced that Kevin Braun, current Vice President, Industrial Coatings, Americas, will take over Hagerty’s current position and Andrew Carroll, current Global Technical Director of Industrial Coatings will be promoted to Braun’s position.

“Gary has been the embodiment of a PPG leader throughout his 38-year career – a true team player who rose to any challenge,” said Michael H. McGarry, PPG Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “His leadership in five businesses has strengthened the organization and allowed PPG to serve customers in new ways. We thank Gary for his many years of tremendous service, and congratulate Chancey, Kevin and Andrew on their key leadership positions. We are pleased to have a talented group of leaders with broad, proven experience, which provides continuity in driving our global business strategies and delivering shareholder value.”
