“Anne and Rebecca are trusted leaders, advisors, mentors and role models to numerous employees and leaders throughout PPG and beyond, including students and professionals throughout our headquarters community,” says Michael H. McGarry, PPG Chairman and CEO. “Their future-forward mentality, ongoing focus on inclusion and overall organizational effectiveness have proven to be invaluable to PPG.”

During her more than 25-year career with PPG, Foulkes has provided legal counsel for nearly every PPG business and function. She has guided the company’s merger and acquisition transactions, including the largest acquisitions in the company’s 138-year history. Since Foulkes was appointed to the executive and operating committees in 2018, PPG has expanded new capabilities and identified growth opportunities through dozens of acquisitions of high-performing brands, including coatings manufacturers Tikkurila, Whitford, Hemmelrath and Ennis-Flint. Foulkes is also a member of the Association of Corporate Counsel and the Allegheny County Bar Association, and served on the board of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank from 2010 to 2021. She has also served as the executive sponsor of PPG’s Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Council.

Liebert joined PPG in June 2018 and leads PPG’s industrial coatings segment, which includes the industrial, packaging, specialty coatings and materials, and automotive OEM coatings businesses, including the company’s mobility initiatives. Under her leadership, PPG has introduced market-ready coatings for the emerging battery electric vehicle market, delivered operational strategies to align regional growth opportunities and invested significantly in leadership training programs. She also oversees the company’s Asia Pacific region and has functional responsibility for global procurement. Liebert currently serves on the board of directors for Corteva Agriscience. She was also recently recognized by Automotive News as one of the 100 leading women in the North American automotive industry.

The 2021 Women of Influence Awards honor the Pittsburgh region’s most influential business women across every industry and profession with a strong track record of performance that have made a difference in Western Pennsylvania and its communities.

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
