In making the announcement, Gary R. Danowski, vice president, performance glazings, praised Fanelli’s “can-do” attitude and said PPG would miss his “enthusiasm, ease of developing relationships, command of details, sense of humor and dedication to PPG and its customers.”
Before becoming director of sales, performance glazings, Fanelli served as director of new products, flat glass, and director of production, automotive OEM glass. He will be replaced by Mark Seeton, formerly sales manager, performance glazings.
