PPG Refinish UK & Ireland has appointed Richard Goode Automotive Refinish director, UK & Ireland, effective immediately.
He replaces Mark Clarke, who announced his retirement after 45 years in the vehicle aftermarket industry, over 15 of which were with PPG.
Goode joined PPG’s Automotive Refinish business in November 2021 and has since supported a number of strategic projects within the firm.
Prior to joining the business, he held a variety of commercial leadership roles within PPG across the industrial and architectural businesses in the UK.
With 20 years of coatings sales experience, PPG says Richard Goode brings to the company a strong history of managing a diverse range of customer relationships and sales channels.
“I’m really proud to be leading the UK & Ireland refinish team,” Goode said. “I look forward to working with our valued customers and trusted distribution partners to build on our leading position in the UK market and provide paint solutions that set the standard for the industry.”
