Coatings Resume

Plowman has 25 years of experience within the International Paint Worldwide business serving Western Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and the United Kingdom.

He began his career at International Paint in 1987 as a sales representative for the company’s specialty coatings brand and moved to Yacht Coatings in 1989. There, he worked his way through a number of sales, marketing and product management positions.

In 2003, AkzoNobel presented Plowman with an outstanding achievement award for his contributions to the growth and expansion of the global Yacht Coatings business. In 2005, he was named Worldwide Yacht Coatings General Manager.
