Saint-Gobain recently announced the appointment of John Crowe as president and CEO of Saint-Gobain Corp. and CertainTeed Corp., effective September 1. As president and CEO of Saint-Gobain, Crowe will act as the company’s representative in North America, overseeing its North American businesses and chairing the company’s executive committee. He succeeds Gilles Colas, who will return to Saint-Gobain’s Paris headquarters as senior vice president in charge of global strategic developments. In addition, Crowe will assume operational responsibility for CertainTeed, following in the footsteps of Peter Dachowski, who retired as president and CEO on August 31 after 35 years of service.

“With more than 30 years of experience in Saint-Gobain’s innovative materials businesses, John is an exceptional leader with strong operational skills,” said Pierre-Andre de Chalendar, chairman and CEO of Saint-Gobain. “His appointment underscores Saint-Gobain’s focus on leveraging its innovation and technical expertise to develop products and solutions that change the way we think about built environments. John will help CertainTeed and other Saint-Gobain businesses in North America develop innovative materials that advance the way we build today in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow.”
