January 6, 2022 | Bill Esler

Pittsburgh, PA—PPG (NYSE: PPG) named Irene Tasi as chief growth officer. Previously with Masco Corporation, Tasi was VP of Sales for Masco Cabinetry prior to its acquisition by Cabinetworks.

In the newly created role—which reports to PPG Chairman and CEO Michael McGarry—Tasi will lead and accelerate the growth agenda, with responsibility for corporate strategy, long-range planning, marketing, brand, and sales at the $13.5 billion paint and coating firm’s global headquarters in Pittsburgh and serve as a member of the company’s operating committee.

“Irene is a proven, entrepreneurial leader who will help to drive our growth strategy and deliver distinctive experiences for our customers,” McGarry says. “She brings strong expertise in commercial excellence, strategic marketing, digital and data analytics, and brand management. Throughout her career, Irene has demonstrated a record of helping businesses grow and delivering exceptional results for customers and shareholders.”

Following her tenure at Masco Cabinetry, Tasi was president of Kichler Lighting, where she successfully completed the integration of that business into Masco. This included developing and executing a strategic plan to achieve revenue and profit growth, driving operational excellence, and building a new product development engine. As VP of Sales for Masco Cabinetry (now Cabinetworks), Tasi led the dealer and retail channels, and developed and implemented strategies to maximize market penetration and overall revenue.

Since joining Masco in 2000, Tasi has also served as director of investor relations at Masco Corporation; director of retail channel marketing at Masco Cabinetry; project manager, Masco Business System Office; and manager, Masco Resource Center.

Tasi holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations from the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and Master of Business Administration from Eastern Michigan University. www.ppg.com
