Ottawa, ON-based Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance board of directors has elected David Cooper of Guardian Industries Corp., Auburn Hills, Mich., as president for a two-year term.

He brings in-depth, cross-functional fenestration industry experience that includes advanced IG systems such as vacuum insulated glass, high-performance glass coatings, IG/glazing sealants and spacer systems.

“IGMA has demonstrated world-class leadership as a technical adviser in IG certification and as an advocate for the insulating glass manufacturers and their suppliers in North America,” Cooper said in the release. “Working at Guardian’s Science and Technology Center has provided me a great deal of leadership training, and I am honored to take over as president of IGMA. I look forward to serving the growing IGMA membership as well as the IG community.”

Cooper replaces outgoing president Ray Wakefield of Trulite Industries, Mississauga, ON. Other board changes include election of Robert Gilles of All Weather Windows, Edmonton, AB, as vice president and Mark Hutchinson from Intigral, Walton Hills, Ohio, as secretary/treasurer.

America, Alpharetta, Ga., Helen Sanders of Sage Electrochromics, Faribault, Minn., Frank Caporiccio with PPG Industries, Pittsburgh, and Crystal Archibald of Kohltech International, Debert, NS.
