AkzoNobel is pleased to announce that Daniela Vlad has been appointed as managing director of AkzoNobel Industrial Coatings. 
Vlad will lead the strategic direction across a diverse product portfolio, including coil and extrusion coatings, packaging coatings, wood finishes and wood adhesives.  
She brings a wealth of experience and expertise, having joined AkzoNobel from Philips in 2019. Since then, Vlad has held a variety of key leadership positions within the company’s coatings businesses, having previously led our Automotive (OEM) and Aerospace activities. During the last four years, Vlad successfully led powder coatings through the company’s 15 by 20 journey and subsequently implemented an accelerated growth strategy under Grow & Deliver.
“I’m both proud and delighted to be leading such a diverse business as industrial coatings,” Vlad said. “Its various activities cover a wide-ranging industry and product portfolio. As well as helping customers keep garage doors and building facades protected and beautiful, we also coat 50 per cent of all beverage cans, keep kitchens beautiful, wooden floors protected and hold wooden roof beams together.​
“It’s incredible to see just how far our products and services reach and how committed our team is in helping our customers. I’m really excited to have joined such a talented team and look forward to leading the business into a new era of progress and development.”

Proudly serving the industry since 1987
