Coty

Global Human Resources Director, Packaging Coatings
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

 
 
 
 
 
 

I’ve worked in several strategic business units and corporate HR. Each role has been progressively more challenging with increased scope, exposure and influence. I’ve also had multiple formal and informal mentoring relationships throughout my PPG career. The best mentors serve as confidants, idea incubators and sources of wisdom. I’ve had the opportunity to change my job without changing my career.

Alfonso

Store Group Manager
San Antonio, Texas

 
 
 
 
 
 

My greatest accomplishment has been achieving the position of store group manager. I was hired as warehouse/delivery driver employee and quickly rose through the ranks to lead associate, assistant manager, store manager, hub manager, hub and spoke cell manager and, finally, store group manager. Throughout my career, I strived to one day be in a position to lead my own market and PPG has given me that opportunity.
