McPherson succeeds Ed Donnelly, retired senior vice president of DuPont Performance Coatings and IPPIC president for the past four years. McPherson will serve a two-year term.

“IPPIC seeks out retired industry leaders to benefit from their experience and leadership in order to provide focus to its mission and ensure value-added initiatives,” the council said.

McPherson held CEO or managing director positions with Courtaulds Chemicals and AkzoNobel businesses for approximately 24 years, and retired from AkzoNobel in 2010 as president of the International Paint division. He previously held research and development, operations and executive positions with Courtaulds, including CEO of the company’s Asia Pacific coatings division. Courtaulds was acquired by AkzoNobel in 1998.

With Akzo Nobel, McPherson also has been managing director of powder coatings and managing director of marine and protective coatings.

IPPIC is comprised of paint and printing ink trade associations representing Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe, Japan, Mexico, and the United States, and provides a forum for information exchange and cooperation on the major issues and priorities facing the paint and printing ink industries worldwide.
