Tabitha Oman, VP, deputy general counsel and chief compliance officer will serve as interim general counsel.
Finn will officially leave the company prior to year-end but will continue to consult for Axalta. He served as Axalta's general counsel since joining the company in 2013.
"Michael's innumerable contributions go far beyond the global leadership of our legal and compliance functions, as he has been invaluable in establishing Axalta as a standalone public company, supporting our board, leading many significant transactions, and managing complex litigation and regulatory matters,” Axalta’s Interim CEO Robert Bryant said.
"Serving as Axalta's General Counsel has been enormously rewarding both professionally and personally, and stepping down was a difficult decision. I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished as a team during my time with the company, and I very much look forward to watching Axalta reach new heights in the future,” Finn said.
