PPG's Archinaco announces retirement

Pittsburgh-based PPG Industries has announced that executive vice president of glass and chemicals, Frank A. Archinaco, will retire July 1.

Charles E. Bunch, executive vice president, will become president and chief operating officer of the company, effective the same day.

Archinaco, 58, has been with PPG since 1965, when he joined the company as a management trainee in Newark, N.J. He became director of marketing and development for automotive and aircraft glass in 1979, general manager of auto replacement glass products in 1981 and general manager of European glass operations in 1984. In 1986, Archinaco returned to Pittsburgh to become vice president of automotive original equipment glass products. He was named vice president of automotive and aircraft glass in 1991; vice president, glass, in 1994; and senior vice president, glass, in 1995. He was elected to his most recent position in 1997.

PPG chairperson and chief executive officer Raymond LeBoeuf announced Archinaco's decision to retire on February 25. "Throughout his 37 years with PPG, Frank has represented the company with great distinction," LeBoeuf said. "He is held in high regard, particularly by our customers and employees, who respect his judgment and sincerity. Frank has contributed significantly to the strategic direction of our company, having been a member of executive management for the past five years. Quite simply, Frank's impact on us and our company will continue long after his last day on the job. I appreciate the opportunity to announce Frank's decision now so we can manage the transition effectively."

According to PPG spokesperson Jeff Worden, Archinaco and his wife have been talking about his retiring for sometime. "He's had a long and distinguished career with PPG," Worden said.
