PPG Aerospace Appoints Coatings, Transparencies Directors

August 29, 2011

PPG Industries’ Aerospace business has named Mark Cancilla global platform director for Coatings and Brent Wright global platform director for Transparencies, succeeding Cancilla.

Cancilla began his PPG career in 1985 at the company’s Pittsburgh headquarters as a glass engineer, then held engineering and program management assignments. He joined PPG’s Aerospace Transparencies business in 1998 as senior sales account manager in the Seattle regional office, and moved to the Huntsville, AL, Transparencies facility in 2001 as manager of product design, development and quality.

Cancilla became global business manager for Aerospace Transparencies the following year and global manager for commercial Aerospace Transparencies in 2006, when PPG acquired Sierracin/Sylmar Corp. and integrated its operations. He was named global platform director for Transparencies in 2010.

As global platform director for Coatings, Cancilla succeeds Brian Roberson, who has relocated to join PPG’s Architectural Coatings business in Australia. Cancilla has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in engineering management from the University of Pittsburgh.
