Global coatings company PPG announced last week that it has appointed Marvin Mendoza as the company’s global head of diversity, equity and inclusion. This is a newly developed role for the company.

Mendoza will be responsible for designing, leading and executing PPG’s global DE&I strategy and leveraging data to accelerate the DE&I agenda. Mendoza will report to Kevin Walling, PPG’s Chief Human Resource Officer.

The appointment takes effect today (Nov. 9).


“We have a responsibility as individuals and as an organization to ensure our workforce is inclusive of all backgrounds and reflects the communities in which we live and work,” said Walling. “At PPG, we know that a diverse workforce, representing wide-ranging nationalities, cultures, languages, religions, ethnicities, and professional and educational experiences, allows us to meet challenges quickly, creatively and effectively.”

About Mendoza

Most recently, Mendoza served as diversity and inclusion chief operating officer for PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he drove the development and execution of a firm-wide D&I vision, strategy and roadmap.

In this role, Mendoza collaborated with the firm’s executive team to integrate D&I into business practices and processes. Mendoza coached executives, employees, and clients on D&I, led the evolution of the firm’s D&I data and analytics approaches, and was at the helm of evolving the firm’s D&I strategy in response to the impacts of COVID-19 and racial injustice.

Prior to this position, Mendoza served in a variety of leadership roles that operated at the intersection of the workforce, business, and society.

Mendoza holds a bachelor’s degree in international business administration from The College of New Jersey, Ewing, New Jersey.
