PHILADELPHIA, US: Axalta Coating Systems Ltd (AXTA) has appointed Robert Bryant, Axalta's executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO), to the additional role of interim chief executive officer (CEO), effective immediately.

Bryant succeeds Terrence Hahn, who has resigned by mutual agreement with the board, following an investigation by outside counsel into conduct by Hahn unrelated to financial matters that Axalta believes was inconsistent with company policies. Hahn has also vacated his position on the board.

“We are pleased that Robert Bryant has agreed to step into the role of interim CEO. Having worked closely with Robert for over five years, I know he has the leadership skills and financial acumen, as well as the respect of the management team and employees, to be an effective leader for Axalta. The company remains well positioned to build on its success, with strong end-market demand and an unrelenting focus on customer service and innovation,” said Charlie Shaver, chairman.
