PPG Industries has announced the appointment of Anup Jain as vice president of Strategic Planning and Corporate Development. Jain will join the company’s operating committee and report directly to chairman and CEO Charles E. Bunch at PPG’s Pittsburgh headquarters.
“Anup brings a broad range of experience to this important strategic role, which will be instrumental to PPG as we continue to grow and expand our businesses globally,” Bunch said.
He assumes leadership for PPG’s strategic planning from Aziz Giga, PPG vice president, strategic planning, and treasurer, who will continue to serve as vice president and treasurer and as a member of PPG’s operating committee.
“Aziz has done an extraordinary job leading the treasury and strategic planning functions for PPG since 2007, during one of the most challenging business and financial periods in the company’s history,” Bunch said. “His keen intellect and broad range of knowledge and experience contribute to PPG’s success well beyond his functional responsibilities.”
Jain previously held the positions of vice president and general manager, Global Test and Measurement, and director, Strategy, for Honeywell Corp. He has also served as an operating principal with Three Cities Research, a private equity firm, serving on its board of directors and working with top management at portfolio companies to drive turnaround and growth. Jain began his career with IBM Corp. as a systems sales engineer.
