Paul Bush, Patrick J. Kenny and Mark Seeton have all been appointed to vice president positions at Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass).
As vice president of quality and technical services, Bush will be responsible for product quality and quality processes, and for providing technical support and guidance to Vitro Glass customers and field sales personnel. Bush has served various management and executive roles in quality and technical services since joining Vitro Glass/PPG in 1997. He has been a director of the quality and technical services department for the past five years.
A 39-year veteran of Vitro Glass/PPG, Kenny is the new vice president of marketing. He will oversee segment and product marketing, innovation, brand and communications, channel programs and new product initiatives for Vitro Glass. He has held many senior marketing leadership roles for Vitro Glass/PPG, including his most recent as director of marketing for the Vitro Glass construction team.
As vice president of sales, Seeton, who joined Vitro Glass/PPG in 2003, will lead glass sales efforts throughout North America, including for the company’s four glass fabrication plants in Canada. He has been director of sales for Vitro Glass since it acquired PPG’s flat glass business in 2016. Seeton began his career with National Gypsum and was the divisional sales manager for Pella Corp. in Pittsburgh before joining PPG as national accounts manager for window and door.
Vitro Architectural Glass president Ricardo Maiz says the three executives have a history of proven leadership within the company and in the glass industry at-large.
“We recently introduced a new brand that signifies Vitro’s renewed commitment to customer partnerships, innovation and long-term thinking,” he says. “Throughout their careers with PPG and during its transition to Vitro Glass, Paul Bush, Pat Kenny and Mark Seeton have demonstrated a parallel commitment to these values and I am confident that they are the right people to help lead our company into the future.”
