Axalta Names Jim Muse As VP Sales For Global Refinish

Axalta has promoted Jim Muse to Vice President of Sales Global Refinish, effective 1 January 2023. Previously, Muse was Vice President EMEA Refinish, based in Axalta’s EMEA headquarters in Basel, Switzerland. In his new role, Muse will operate from the company’s headquarters in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, USA and report to Troy Weaver, Senior Vice President Global Refinish.

“We are thrilled to promote Jim to lead our global sales organisation,” said Weaver. “Jim’s continued commitment to commercial excellence, coupled with his most recent experience leading the transformation of our EMEA Refinish business, makes him a great fit for this role. I am confident that with his vast knowledge of the refinish industry and his excellent leadership skills, he will be instrumental in continuing to grow the business across all geographies.

“We are committed to operate as a truly global business unit. We want to deliver a consistent customer experience across all markets we serve, and Jim will play a critical role in executing this vision.”

Muse joined Axalta in 2013 as part of the North American refinish leadership team and was awarded the Axalta Senior Leadership Award in 2015. The company says he was instrumental in the success of Axalta’s initiative to secure and grow market share with multiple location collision shop operators, mega-dealers, and nationally recognised collision shop networks.
