Nigel Rees, GGF Chief Executive has decided to retire at the end of 2016. Nigel, who has been employed by the Glass and Glazing Federation since 1994, has been at the helm of the industry’s leading trade body for 15 years and under his leadership the GGF has seen continued growth and stability.

In the last 12 months the GGF has undergone a great deal of change which has included internal restructuring and new governance following an independent review.

As announced in July, the GGF and its subsidiary companies have been restructured with the Federation being a stand-alone entity, directing all its energies into supporting the GGF Membership, whilst the six commercial subsidiaries will now operate under one broad corporate body.

The commercial subsidiaries remain wholly owned by the GGF and will continue to operate in existing and new markets to provide financial support to the Federation.

Nigel commented, “In my time at the GGF, I have overseen the growth of the Federation, from a stand-alone Trade Federation to the Group of commercial companies that are now prospering so well. I have put everything I could into the Federation over the years and feel that with the planned changes now starting and with the Group moving to new premises, the time is right for new ideas and a fresh management approach to deal with the challenges ahead.”

Given the change in structure and governance, the GGF Board of Directors will now start a recruitment process to find a new Chief Executive.

Throughout the changes and under Nigel Rees’ tenure for the last 20 years, the GGF and its group of companies have remained financially stable and the Federation has continued to deliver a high level of benefits to its Members.

Nigel Rees concluded, “I have truly valued my time with the GGF, its Members and the incredible Staff who make up not just the Federation, but also all the subsidiaries too.  I wish them all, every success for the future.”
