Mukerji has a bachelor of arts degree in English from Jadavpur University in Calcutta and became a reporter and sub-editor for Calcutta's Sunday magazine. After moving to the United States, she served as copy editor and free-lance writer for several newspapers in the Washington Metropolitan area.
Mukerji also brings experience in the construction industry to the glass industry, as her most recent position was as associate editor of ASCE News, the American Society of Civil Engineers' 133,000-circulation monthly newspaper published in Reston, VA.
"The managing editor serves as the linchpin for the National Glass Association's magazines. Sahely's combination of writing and editing talent, plus knowledge of the construction industry, will serve us well in developing print and Internet versions of the magazines," says Glass Magazine and AutoGlass editor in chief Nancy M. Davis.
Davis had been serving as managing editor under Charles Cumpston, who becomes editor emeritus of Glass Magazine and AutoGlass effective June 30. Mukerji will also be working with Christopher D. Walz, the recently appointed editor of AutoGlass.
