Canadian industrial painting contractor Park Derochie Inc. has named Gil Rogers as Coatings Division Manager and Jim Panko as Director of Sales.

Founded in 1956, the Edmonton, Alberta-based company provides field and shop services for large commercial and industrial coatings, fireproofing, insulation and scaffolding. 

Gil Rogers: Coatings Division Manager

Rogers assumed his new duties on Aug. 15, bringing with him 35 years of coatings-related experience in operations, sales and management.

He is a Journeyman Painter, NACE Level 3-Certified Coating Inspector, and holds certification as a Protective Coating Specialist with both NACE and SSPC. He also travels internationally as a Lead Instructor in the NACE Coating Inspector Program.

In addition to meeting clients’ current needs, Rogers will focus on the future needs of Park Derochie and the industrial painting industry.

“Gil’s previous experience, work ethic and interpersonal skills lend themselves well to his new role,” the company said. “He is looking forward to working with his team, clients and industry stakeholders.”

Jim Panko: Director of Sales

Panko brought 28 years of sales and industrial coatings expertise to his new position, which he assumed in 2010.

He started in the coating industry in 1983 and holds numerous accreditations through SSPC and NACE. 

Panko helped establish four family-owned stores that targeted the industrial markets in Northern and Southern Ontario.  In 2001, Sherwin-Williams acquired the family business.  Panko stayed on in a managerial role in the industrial division, later transferring to Edmonton, Alberta, where he developed the industrial market, dealing with engineers and facility owners.
