DuPont has made key changes in its Performance Coatings leadership, naming John G. McCool as President to replace Terry Caloghiris, who becomes President of Strategic Initiatives.

Both appointments were effective Nov. 1.

Terry Caloghiris

Terry-Caloghiris

Caloghiris, 59, has held a range of senior leadership roles around the world in business management, sales, marketing, technical and operations during his 31-year career with DuPont.
 
His tenure includes senior positions in sales marketing, technical, manufacturing and business management in the Polymers, Packaging, Electronics, Films, and Nylon businesses, including assignments in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Since 1998, Mr. Caloghiris has served as vice president and general manager of various DuPont businesses, including Global Nylon Industrial, Nylon Asia Pacific, Packaging & Industrial Polymers, Engineering Polymers and Performance Coatings Transformation. In January 2006, he was named group vice president of DuPont Coatings & Color Technologies. In October 2009, he became president of Performance Coatings.

Caloghiris, a native of Cairo, Egypt, has degrees in metallurgy and French from the Universities of Surrey, in the United Kingdom, and Caen, in France. After election as a chartered engineer, he worked in the steel, machine tool industries, and in nuclear research, before joining DuPont.
