Carboline Announces Change to North American Structure



St. Louis, Missouri, June 1, 2018 – RPM’s Performance Coatings Group has announced a change to its North American and Latin American strategy. Effective June 1, all of North America and Latin America will report to the corporate headquarters in St. Louis under President and COO Chris Tiernay. Previously, the Canadian and Latin American Carboline businesses operated independently under separate management teams.

This consolidation allows for better brand consistency, streamlined communication and more efficient use of resources. Customers can expect to see a more united Carboline in North America and Latin America, with a great team ready to fully support customers seamlessly across borders.

“We welcome Canada, Mexico and Colombia to Carboline and look forward to developing one North American - Latin American team. In recent years more and more of our customers are doing business north and south of the USA. This new structure will allow us to provide the high level of service Carboline is known for from Canada to Colombia,” stated Chris Tiernay, President and COO.
