Axalta Coating Systems (Philadelphia) recently announced that its Board of Directors appointed Robert Bryant, the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, as the company’s interim CEO.

Bryant succeeds Terrence Hahn, who recently resigned via a mutual agreement with the Board following an investigation into conduct that, though was unrelated to financial matters, was “inconsistent with company politics.”

The Company remains well positioned to build on its success, with strong end-market demand and an unrelenting focus on customer service and innovation."
