PPG Industries’ aerospace business has named Mark Cancilla global platform director for coatings and Brent Wright as global platform director for transparencies, succeeding Cancilla.

Cancilla began his PPG career in 1985 at the company’s Pittsburgh headquarters as a glass engineer, then held engineering and program management assignments.

 Mark Cancilla
Mark Cancilla will head PPG’s aerospace coatings business.

He joined PPG’s aerospace transparencies business in 1998 as senior sales account manager at the Seattle regional office and moved to the Huntsville, AL, transparencies facility in 2001 as manager of product design, development and quality.

Cancilla became global business manager for aerospace transparencies the following year and global manager for commercial aerospace transparencies in 2006, when PPG acquired Sierracin/Sylmar Corp. and integrated its operations. He was named global platform director for transparencies in 2010.

Architectural Coatings Shift

Cancilla succeeds Brian Roberson, who has relocated to join PPG’s architectural coatings business in Australia. A native of West Mifflin, PA, Cancilla earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a master’s in engineering management from the University of Pittsburgh.

He joined Sierracin/Sylmar Corp. as military transparencies marketing manager in 2001, became platform business manager for military transparencies with PPG in 2007, and added responsibility for transparent armor business in 2010.

Wright earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Utah and a Master of Business Administration degree from Texas Christian University.
