In 2020, he returned to the U.S. to serve as the global finance director for PPG’s global architectural coatings businesses.

Before joining PPG, Edwards had a stint at Arthur Anderson, LLP. He has a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from Vanderbilt University. Additionally, Edwards is a CPA.
