AAMA announces Steve Fronek as Board Chair

Wausau Window and Wall System’s vice president of technical services, Steve Fronek, P.E., LEED® Green Associate, has assumed the role as chairman of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) Board of Directors.

For the past two years, Fronek has served as AAMA's vice chairman and as a member representative for Wausau, part of Apogee Enterprises, Inc. A publicly-held, U.S. corporation, Apogee Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq: APOG) also includes glazing contractor Harmon, Inc.; finishing services provider Linetec; architectural products manufacturer Tubelite, Inc.; and glass fabricator Viracon, Inc.

“Apogee demonstrates its industry leadership by supporting trade associations,” says Fronek.

“As a leader in technologies involving the design and development of value-added glass products and services, AAMA helps our companies stay ahead of important, legislative regulations, building and energy codes, and industry standards,” Fronek continues. “With active involvement in AAMA’s technical committees, we gain a greater understanding of construction and specification issues. Through the association’s educational offering, we extend our reach and share our knowledge with the architectural design community.”
