by | May 9, 2022 | People

The Glass & Glazing Federation has announced that long standing employee, Ben Wallace, has been appointed as Head of Membership & Customer Relations. Ben has been with the GGF for 10 years and has extensive industry experience to bring to the role.

Anda Gregory, chief development officer of the GGF comments on Ben’s appointment: “It’s essential that our head of membership and customer relations has a deep understanding of the inner workings of the industry as well as the individual needs of our members. Ben’s experience perfectly matches this brief, so we are delighted that he is moving into this role.”

Ben says: “I have been present at GGF meetings since 2012 listening to what is important to our members. With this knowledge I have worked with the team to successfully develop the GGF technical department to become even more of an asset to members. In my new role as the group head of membership and customer relations I am excited to extend this even further, and with the help of the team make the GGF even stronger and more valuable to members. There is a lot of room for development, and we can bring the GGF even closer to members to help them to succeed in the industry.”

After leaving the military, Ben worked for a PVC-U Manufacturer as a technical advisor to the trade. Upon joining the GGF in 2012 as a trainee technical officer, he carried out a two-year training programme, including shadowing some of the industry’s leading experts, to become a full technical officer. Since then, Ben has been involved in all elements of the glazing industry and has worked on some extremely high-profile glazing projects internationally.

In 2015 Ben took over the consultancy department and turned it into an asset for the federation before being promoted in 2020 to senior technical officer, heading up the glazing executive side of the Federation.

Anda Gregory concludes: “The GGF is constantly evolving to suit the needs of our members and the ever-changing marketplace we are all a part of. This latest appointment is a fantastic development for the Federation, and we are confident that Ben’s wealth of experience is going to continue to benefit members in his new role.”
