PPG Industries’ flat glass business named Stephen Cohen as national architectural manager of the northeast region. In correspondence, it appointed George Sultage national architectural manager of the mid-Atlantic region.

Cohen joins PPG from Schott North America, where he spent 20 years in sales and product management positions, most recently as national sales manager of architecture. At his new post, Cohen will support architects and glazing contractors from New York City north to the Canadian border.

“Steve’s experience dealing with the complexities of architectural glass and his familiarity with designers and their needs in that part of the country will be an asset to them and us,” says Glenn T. Miner, PPG director of construction of flat glass.

Cohen, who earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Penn State, will be based in the New York City area.

Sultage, who previously covered both the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions, will now focus exclusively on the latter territory, which stretches from upstate New York south to Washington, D.C., and west to Kentucky.

“George was extremely successful in his efforts to support architects, designers and glaziers all the way up the Atlantic coast,”says Miner. “Now, with Steve and George covering those areas, we have two seasoned professionals with concentrated resources ready to meet the demands of our customers.”

Prior to joining PPG, Sultage worked for TSI Exterior Wall Systems and Trainor Glass Company, among others. A 16-year veteran of the glass and architectural industries with two degrees from Pittsburgh Technical Institute, Sultage has expertise in glass specification, customer support and project tracking from initial bid through completion. His office is in Mechanicsville, Md.
