Foulkes joined PPG in 1995, initially supporting the chemicals group on
commercial and contract matters. Since that time, she has worked in a
number of roles of increasing responsibility, including providing legal
support to all of the company's business units and the environment,
health and safety (EHS) function. She also served as counsel for the
corporate development group, providing legal support for global
acquisition and divestiture activities. In 2005, Foulkes was promoted to
corporate counsel with responsibility for all commercial, antitrust,
labor and employment, and intellectual property legal matters for the
aerospace, architectural coatings, automotive refinish, and performance
and marine coatings businesses. In 2010, she was named assistant general
counsel; in 2011, assistant general counsel and secretary; and in 2016,

"Anne's extensive background within various PPG functions and business
units will be valuable in this important leadership position," said
McGarry. "We thank Glenn for his many contributions during his 33-year
career with PPG. He provided legal counsel for virtually every PPG
merger and acquisition transaction over the past 15 years, and was a
valued confidant for many leaders within the organization. His
leadership extended beyond legal counsel as a valued member of the
company's operating and executive committees."

a variety of functions in the United States, Asia-Pacific region and

in 2005, leading legal support for PPG's corporate operations, and he
was named vice president in 2006. He became senior vice president and
general counsel, and joined PPG's executive and operating committees in
