Experience

Robert Logemann is a veteran CEO and board member who specializes in resuscitating and revitalizing underperforming global businesses in the industrial, consumer product, and medical device sectors. He currently serves as the Chairman and CEO of Professional Plumbing Group (PPG) Inc., a business that manufactures and distributes high-quality plumbing products and solutions. He also stands as a senior advisor at Dunes Point Capital, a private investment firm. 

With 35 years (and counting) of leadership experience, Robert Logemann has a proven ability to perform quick business assessments, execute improvement plans, facilitate organizational growth, and build world-class teams. Driven by a foundational belief that businesses cannot cost-cut their way to prosperity, Logemann utilizes his expertise in business growth, strategy, turnaround, board collaboration, and mergers & acquisitions to achieve success. Decades of hands-on experience have given Logemann the capacity to readily define a business’s core competencies and divest non-core initiatives, operations, and product lines for the long-term betterment of the organization. 

By applying his hard-won leadership savvy to corporate challenges, Logemann has maintained a record of success in cash flow generation and balance sheet management. This achievement, in turn, has enabled him to grow profits and revenue for business ventures spanning North America, Asia, Latin American, and EMEA.  

To date, Robert Logemann has developed and executed complete redesign strategies for global companies in the industrial, medical device, and consumer goods sectors. Before taking on his role at PPG in 2020, Logemann spent four years as CEO for the Tyden Group, an international holding company centered on the provision of consumable and permanent track and trace solutions. From 2013 to 2015, he held the same role for one of the most prestigious American tableware-makers, the Lenox Corporation. 

Prior to those roles, Logemann served as the President and CEO of Home Care Industries. He was tasked with fundamentally restructuring the organization, reengineering its business model, and expanding its consumer base. He was well-suited for the challenge at the time, as he had previously been responsible for making similarly extensive improvements to Consolidated Storage Companies, a business with significant financial, operating, sales, personnel, and leadership concerns. 

Before making his first forays into top leadership, Robert Logemann held significant operating roles at KONE, Sunrise Medical, Stanley Black & Decker, and Otis Elevator. He also holds an MBA from the University of Connecticut’s School of Business and a bachelor’s degree in Manufacturing Engineering from Miami University.
