Sinetar was named to his current position in 2006. Previously, he served as manager, national accounts; national sales manager; director of sales; and general manager, architectural coatings. Earlier in his career, he held various positions with Olympic® Paints and Stains. A native of Bethpage, N.Y., Sinetar earned a bachelor’s in business administration from MonmouthUniversity and completed executive education at CarnegieMellonUniversity.
