Thomas E. Maziarz has been named vice president, stores and dealers, architectural coatings, North America.

The company’s store and dealer channels of the architectural coatings business in North America recently expanded significantly with the acquisition of AkzoNobel’s North American architectural coatings business. The $1.05 billion deal more than doubled PPG’s architectural coatings footprint on the continent.

Maziarz will continue to report to Scott Sinetar, vice president, architectural coatings, North America.

The Pittsburgh, PA-based coatings company says the new appointments, effective Aug. 1, include the following:
