McDonald is currently general PPG McDonaldmanager, Reinforcements, and leader for Fiber Glass in the Americas and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). McDonald will succeed Thomas P. Kerr, who will retire effective March 1.

We congratulate him on his many accomplishments and successes and wish him and his family all the best.”
