Patrick Kenny

PPG Industries has announced the appointment of Patrick J. Kenny as vice president, corporate marketing, effective Nov. 1. He will continue to be based at the company's global headquarters in Pittsburgh and will report directly to J. Rich Alexander, PPG senior vice president, performance coatings.

Kenny will be responsible for corporate marketing and growth initiatives, government selling programs, market-facing growth initiatives, and marketing/sales competency development. He is currently PPG general manager, corporate marketing and construction markets.

Kenny joined PPG in 1980 and progressed through various project management, sales management and marketing positions in the flat glass, commercial products and construction contracting businesses. He moved to Hong Kong in 1989 as managing director for a PPG glass joint venture and was promoted to global marketing manager, flat glass, in 1993.

In 1999, Kenny became global director of marketing, flat glass. In 2003, he was appointed business director of the newly created, cross-business construction market team. He assumed additional responsibility for leading PPG’s corporate marketing and growth initiatives in November 2006.

“Pat has helped move our corporate growth agenda forward with specific marketing initiatives, as part of the current growth initiative staff, and he is well qualified to lead this function,” Alexander said.

Kenny earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. He also earned an executive master of business administration degree from the University of Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh-based PPG is a global supplier of paints, coatings, optical products, specialty materials, chemicals, glass and fiber glass. The company has more than 140 manufacturing facilities and equity affiliates and operates in more than 60 countries. For more information, visit www.ppg.com.
