New senior leadership has been installed at coatings maker Hempel USA; industrial flooring systems provider Dur-A-Flex Inc.; and Saint-Gobain, the world’s largest building materials company.

Hempel: Oil & Gas Sales Chief

Hempel USA has appointed Troy Marshall to lead its North America Oil & Gas department, focusing mainly on the United States.

Marshall is a NACE Certified Coating Inspector. He earned degrees in Environmental Science from Fort Lewis College in Colorado and Computer Science from Sam Houston State University in Texas.

“Troy has done a very good job in the past at Hempel and in other companies,” said Malcolm Kerr, North America Sales Director. “I am confident he is the right person to lead our Oil & Gas Sales Segment, especially now when we have such an ambitious growth plan.”

Hempel has been developing and producing coatings for the protective and marine segments for more than 95 years. The company operates in more than 80 countries.

Dur-A-Flex: Sales/Technical VP

Patrick J. Meade has been named Vice President, Sales and Technical Support, for Dur-A-Flex Inc. He formerly held positions with Lutron Inc. and Stonhard Inc.

“Pat has over 20 years of sales and business development experience, with strengths in strategic planning, team building, negotiating and project closings,” said Dur-A-Flex President and Chief Operating Officer Peter V. Ferris.

Meade has an MBA in marketing management and a BS in commerce and engineering science from Drexel University in Philadelphia.

Based in East Hartford, CT, Dur-A-Flex has more than 40 years of experience in seamless commercial / industrial flooring systems and polymer components—epoxies, urethanes, methyl methacrylates (MMA), and premium colored quartz aggregates. The company’s products include primers and sealers, membrane and crack fillers, resurfacers and performance topcoats.

Saint-Gobain/CertainTeed: New President

Saint-Gobain, the world’s largest building materials company, has announced the appointment of John Crowe as President and CEO of both Saint-Gobain Corp. (the company’s North American holding company) and CertainTeed Corp. (its largest North American subsidiary).

Crowe will oversee Saint-Gobain Corp.’s North American businesses and chair its Executive Committee. He also assumes operational responsibility for CertainTeed.

“With more than 30 years of experience in Saint-Gobain’s innovative materials businesses, John is an exceptional leader with strong operational skills,” said Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and CEO of Saint-Gobain. 

Crowe sees his main role as continuing to drive innovation throughout the companies.

“CertainTeed has been a leader in the construction industry for over 100 years—Saint-Gobain for over three centuries—but we have never seen such a rapid pace of change, or so many exciting new building technologies,” he said.

Crowe has held a wide range of leadership positions within Saint-Gobain over 30 years, including President of the Performance Plastics and Crystals businesses. Most recently, he was President of the global abrasives business, with responsibility for more than 13,000 employees and 75 manufacturing facilities in 24 countries.

He holds a BS in chemical engineering from Clarkson University (Potsdam, NY) and an MBA from Boston College.
