GGF APPOINTS NEW DIRECTOR OF HOME IMPROVEMENT
- Posted 17/08/2017
The GGF is delighted to announce the appointment of Russell Day as Director of Home Improvement
Russell's appointment follows the recent departure of Brian Smith who left the Federation last week after six years of service.
A trained engineer, Russell has worked in the window and door industry for 25 years, holding positions in sales, distribution, manufacturing, technical development and general management.
As Technical Director at Abbott Joinery he was involved in the development of market-leading new build PVC-u window and cavity closer systems. During this period he also worked in site installation, contract management and the development of supply chain procedures.
Russell next moved to an Italy-based composite material systems company before returning to the UK where he joined the Glass and Glazing Federation as a Technical Officer, before becoming Senior Technical Officer.
Russell is the currently Secretary of the GGF Heritage Windows Group, Hardware Group, Insulated Glass Manufacturers Group, Glazing Components Group and the recently created Systems House Group. He also chairs the industry’s Glazing Supply Chain Group.
On taking up his new role, Russell commented: “The Home Improvement sector is vitally important to the GGF and I’ll ensure that our Members continue to receive the best technical support and all the latest changes in Government policy and legislation. I am very much looking forward to taking on this role and progressing this side of the Federation’s activities.”
