FGIA Welcomes New Technical Manager, Glass Products and Canadian Industry Affairs
The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) is pleased to announce the hiring of Nathalie Thibault, who will serve the organization as Technical Manager, Glass Products and Canadian Industry Affairs. Throughout 2020, Thibault will shadow FGIA Glass Products and Canadian Industry Affairs Director Marg Webb to prepare to take on her duties upon Webb’s retirement in early 2021.
Nathalie comes to us with over 15 years’ experience in the insulating glass arena – said Janice Yglesias, FGIA Executive Director. – With sales, project management and technical roles throughout her career, she is well-positioned to represent FGIA in various Canadian standards and regulatory arenas as well as to guide the work of our Glass Products Council members. Her work ethic and experience plus her Canadian residency and fluency in French all came together to produce the ideal candidate for this role.
The glass initiatives of FGIA are critical to the new organization, so it’s exceptionally beneficial to have Nathalie on board so early in 2020, allowing us about a full year of operating together on all glass and Canadian activities – said Webb. – We have the opportunity to travel together throughout this year to all relevant industry events, creating direct access to first-hand learning experiences. With the volume of knowledge and the vast array of contacts to be retained within this role, a comprehensive and coordinated plan executed over an ample timeframe is sure to create a seamless transition.
Thibault lives in Rivière-du-Loup, Québec and will work from her home office. She will be attending the upcoming FGIA Annual Conference February 10-13.
