Chuck Skalski has been appointed president of Gaco Western.

Skalski started his career at Gaco Western in 1991 as an area manager to develop Ontario, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Western New York markets. Since then, he has held numerous roles throughout the company including, most recently, vice president of sales for the GacoFlex division.

Skalski is credited with spearheading the launch of Gaco Silicone coatings into the specification market and launching the GacoFlex distribution model that is currently in place.

“This is really exciting and a quite humbling point in my career at Gaco Western,” said Skalski. “I'm looking forward to building Gaco to be even bigger and better than what it is today.”

Gaco Western’s product portfolio includes polyurethane spray foam insulation and a line of silicone, acrylic, epoxy, and urethane coatings. Products include specialty coatings for roof, pedestrian, and traffic decking and spray polyurethane insulation for commercial, industrial and residential applications.
