PITTSBURGH, US: PPG has appointed Steve Pocock as vice president, architectural coatings, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) north and east, effective immediately. He will report to Tim Knavish, PPG executive vice president.

In this expanded role, Pocock will lead PPG’s architectural coatings teams in the region, build the PPG brand assortment, drive team engagement and innovation, create increased value for customers and deliver outstanding results for our shareholders.
